Update - Evers Road Low Water Crossing Reconstruction


Update - Evers Road Low Water Crossing Reconstruction

As everyone in the area is aware, the old low water crossing over Huebner Creek on Evers Road has been completely demolished. The new crossing will be a bridge type structure, with ten new 10' x 6' box culverts. The contractor plans on starting the construction of the footings for this structure this coming Saturday, or next Monday morning at the latest. They are finishing up the repositioning of the sewer main this week.
We did experience several conflicts in the past month, one being the discovery of an old abandoned sewer main found under the location of the planned bridge footers and another with the gas mains being set too shallow. The sewer main was cut and is being moved out of the way and capped, and the gas contractor will be back out in about a week to reposition the mains. These conflicts resulted in a delay of the project by about two weeks. Please keep in mind that this is a bridge over a creek and the spring rains and potential flooding may delay the project even longer. The construction should be complete by mid-July, again, weather permitting.
 
When completed, the roadway will be safer, the bridge will remain open through most of our flood events, and our Firemen and Public Works employees won't have to worry so much or spend so much time on closing and opening the road. As a bonus, the bridge itself will have an attractive rock veneer and, and will have wider sidewalks for our very active handicapped citizens. The decorative railings will be lit along the entire length of the bridge and medallions depicting our military forces will be placed on each railing cover. A new pedestrian crosswalk will be installed at the library, complete with roadway lighting.
 
We can't emphasize enough that this was an extremely urgent project, that this addresses the most common of our flooding events, and that we are truly sorry for any inconvenience this project may cause. A depiction of the new bridge can be viewed on our website at www.leonvalleytexas.gov . Thank you for your patience and understanding while we strive to make this a safer roadway! For questions or comments about this project, please feel free to contact Public Works Director Melinda Moritz, at (210) 681-1232 or by email at m.moritz@leonvalleytexas.gov .

Walk & Roll Challenge


Encouraging Citizens- Leon Valley Environmental and Health Activists!
 
The annual Walk & Roll Challenge is conducted by the Alamo Area Council of Governments to draw attention to the link between transportation and air quality; to encourage new and healthier transportation habits; and to recognize employers and individuals committed to cleaner air and healthier living. Every May, AACOG calls upon residents, businesses, and organizations across San Antonio to take alternative transportation rather than drive alone. Encouraging people to travel by means (e.g., carpooling, biking, taking the bus, telecommuting, working a compressed work week or walking) and to record those trips on a website www.Nuride and create a profile.
 
In 2017, the City of Leon Valley positively contributed to the environment by taking the following actions: increased our registration on NuRide, 250 recorded trips, 67 rideshare trips (carpool + vanpool), 6 telecommute trips, 143 walking trips, 34 bike trips, Reduced Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) by 1,585 miles, Reduced CO2 output by .71 tons, 72 gallons of gas saved, $848 saved and Fire Chief Valdez recorded the most trips on NuRide! Encouraging Citizens- Leon Valley Environmental and Health Activists! Committed in taking Action towards cleaner air, healthier living as well as contributing positively to our environment. Thank you.

AACOG's CARE Program Provides Rides Home From Work In Emergency Situations



Taking the bus, carpooling, cycling, or walking to work is good for the air as well as your pocketbook. But what do you do when an emergency comes up and you need to get home in a hurry, but you're stuck at work without your car? To promote greener commuting by reducing that concern, the Alamo Area Council of Governments' Certified Auto Ride in an Emergency (CARE) Program offers those who've commuted by alternative means a reimbursement of up to $50 for a ride home from work when an emergency arises.
 
To receive a reimbursement up to four times per year, you must: 1) live and work within the eight-county greater San Antonio area ; 2) carpool /vanpool, take the bus, bike, or walk to work at least three times per week; and 3) keep your commuting information current on NuRide.com, the online system AACOG uses to gather commuting statistics.  While it's free for individuals to use, NuRide offers not only CARE Program reimbursements, but rewards from more than 100 businesses.

ON IT
The City of Leon Valley is bringing new life and enforcement to the ON IT  program. All City Departments are teaming together to bring more attention and compliance to your neighborhood issues and concerns. The intention of the   ON IT  program is to have a direct means of reporting your community concerns regarding streets, sidewalks, abandoned homes, loose or dead animal reports, permitting concerns, noise or other neighborhood nuisances and much more.

The goal is to ensure that City service requests and information is handled, as promptly as possible, with a high level of customer service. Report it and an  ON IT team member will respond as quickly as possible.
