SAN ANTONIO -- West Avenue between Nakoma Drive and North Loop Road is closed beginning Monday due to bridge construction.
The road is expected to be closed for about six months.
Bridge construction planned for the area is part of the "West Avenue Low Water Crossing" project, a 2012-2017 bond project.
Planned improvements include the installation of a new bridge at the Salado Creek Crossing. The bridge is expected to improve drainage across West Avenue.
New utility lines will also be added.
Construction on this bond project reportedly started in Sept. 2015 and is scheduled to be complete by April 2017.
