Starting Friday morning, March 5, the section of Alamo Street that runs directly in front of the Church, connecting Crockett Street and Houston Street, will be closed.
This closure is temporary and will continue through Sunday, March 7. Alamo Street between Commerce and Crockett will remain open to visitors accessing the Menger Hotel.
In the past, Alamo Street has been closed for March 6 Commemoration events, as we honor the sacrifice made by the Alamo Defenders in 1836. This road closure will allow visitors to experience the site unlike most days of the year, with the historic battlefield footprint devoid of vehicular traffic, making even more memorable cherished traditions like the "Dawn at the Alamo" ceremony on Saturday, March 6, and improving safety for those visiting the battlefield site.
