Sundt, JV Partner Chosen for San Pedro Creek Revitalization
SAN ANTONIO, TX Sundt Construction, Inc. and a local joint venture partner have been selected to lead construction of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project.
Sundt and Davila Construction were chosen by Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) to work on the $175-million project, which includes revitalizing two miles of the creek and building a linear park that enhances the west side of downtown San Antonio, Texas.
"We are extremely honored to be selected to build a truly visionary, game-changing project for this community with our local partner Davila Construction," said Sundt Senior Vice President John Carlson. "Once again our elected officials at the County and City saw the potential of San Pedro Creek as a world class linear park for our citizens to enjoy for generations into the future."
The San Pedro Creek Improvements project includes four miles of trails and 11 acres of landscaped area. Its many positive impacts include managing flood control by removing 30 acres and 38 adjacent structures from the 100-year floodplain. This project will also serve as a catalyst for economic development, while revitalizing natural habitat and water quality. Project boundaries begin at the tunnel inlet near Fox Tech High School and travel through the western side of downtown to the confluence of Alazan and Apache creeks.
The two-year project, managed by SARA, will serve as the centerpiece of the city's 300th anniversary celebration in May 2018.
