Tonight Begins Weekend Closure of Broadway-Hildebrand Intersection

The intersection of Broadway and Hildebrand, along with a portion of Broadway between Burr and Groveland, will be closed over the weekend. From Friday, April 11 at 9 p.m. through Monday, April 14 at 5 a.m., traffic will be detoured to local streets. Construction crews will install sewer lines across the intersection.

Access to all businesses will remain available through local streets while the intersection and roadway is closed. Due to the closure of Broadway between Burr and Groveland, detour routes to reach businesses will be slightly longer. Signs will be placed to direct motorists through the detours.

The attached detour map shows the routes open to drivers. Drivers will be diverted with signage to N. New Braunfels before they reach the intersection. Drivers headed east on Hildebrand are required to turn right onto Broadway, where they can continue south or follow the signage toward N. New Braunfels to head north.

All drivers are encouraged to travel at appropriate speeds while using local roads. Electronic message boards are in place to notify motorists of the upcoming closure. Area businesses and residents have also been notified.

The Broadway Corridor Phase IIIA (Broadway-Hildebrand) project will provide a drainage system designed to convey a 100-year storm event across Broadway St., improving driving conditions and safety along Broadway St. and Hildebrand Ave. This project also includes reconstruction of Broadway and Hildebrand with curbs, sidewalks, driveway approaches, addition of turn lanes and traffic signal improvements. SAWS and CPS Energy will be replacing and adjusting the water, sewer and gas facilities throughout the project area. In addition, this project includes the construction of the approved Broadway Street/Hildebrand Avenue underground conversion project as part of the CPS Energy CIED Program to bury all overhead utility lines at the four corners of the intersection.
