The bridge construction for Loop 82 on Aquarena Springs Drive has been delayed to begin between Aug. 2014 and Jan. 2015 due to the legal acquisition process between the city and TxDOT.
The city is now working with TxDOT to begin planning the construction process in May, said project engineer Rey Garcia. The project will be awarded to a contractor in May, and it will take two to three months for the legal work to be completed before construction can begin. Garcia said the project will break ground in August if the acquisition process is completed by early summer.
“That’s going to be the earliest that we can start, and the window is if the acquisition process takes longer, then it could take up to early next year,” Garcia said.
