River Road Restoration

River Road Restoration

In an effort to restore and sustain the native life in this section of the river, Bexar County, the City of San Antonio, the River Authority, and the US Corps of Engineers (USACE) are conducting the River Road Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study in order to identify potential projects, as well as scientifically evaluate these projects for their impact and cost-effectiveness. This feasibility study will bring together experts from various state and federal natural resource agencies in order to collect field data on the current condition of the area and apply habitat models to predict the future conditions of each project scenario. This is a critical step toward the potential funding of the design and construction of a restoration project.

This study is being conducted under a USACE program that can potentially provide future funding for ecosystem restoration strategies such as bank stabilization, invasive species removal, park amenities, and reconfiguration of vehicular and pedestrian access. As a local sponsor, the River Authority is facilitating the public input process to develop the ecosystem restoration plan and implement a potential future project.
