UPDATE: Additional Weekend Closure Needed
Overhead transmission lines are being improved in southeast San Antonio to improve electric reliability.
May 5, 2023 (SAN ANTONIO) – CPS Energy is working to improve the quality and safety of aging transmission lines, which will ensure electric reliability on the southeast area of the city at S. W.W. White Road just before the S.E. Military Drive intersection, as well as the southbound lane of Meadowland Place in the Highland Hills area.
An additional Sunday will be needed for this project. May 7, 2023, will also require intermediate lane closures. For safety precautions, intermediate lane closures will take place and traffic will be directed by Barricades Unlimited.
Drivers are asked to find alternative routes and avoid the areas, if possible. CPS Energy reminds drivers to Move Over or Slow Down, per State law, for crew and driver safety.
