Millions in sidewalk improvements coming to east side


SAN ANTONIO -- Millions of dollars worth of street and sidewalk improvements are coming to the city's east side.

Monday city officials broke ground on a three-phase project in the Wheatley area.

It's part of the EastPoint Promise Zone between downtown and the AT&T Center.

This means roughly two million dollars a year over the next three years, adding new curbs, driveways, and wheelchair-accessible sidewalks.

"All of those things benefit the community," said District 2 Councilman Alan Warrick. "They benefit property values, give a sense of pride in your neighborhood, and that's what we're trying to foster here on the east side."

Phase one targets eight streets in the Wheatley area and should be complete by the end of the year.
