River Road Restoration

River Road Restoration

The River Road Ecosystem Restoration Project is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project supported by the San Antonio River Authority and Bexar County. The Corps conducted a feasibility study to identify potential restoration measures and recommended a plan to restore the health and function of this segment of the San Antonio River’s aquatic and riparian ecosystem. Through the Corps’ Fish Passage Program, the project will:

  1. implement channel restoration activities to remove non-native and invasive species and reestablish native aquatic plants
  2. improve fish passage and the quality of migratory and resident avian habitats
  3. mitigate erosion
  4. provide increased opportunities for birding, fishing, and other recreational opportunities
