that area behind Wal-Mart.
“This is one that depends on donations — dedication of right of way to the city from property owners in order for it to proceed,” Thieleman said, explaining that design work is in progress.
“The city will be paying one-third of the cost of that road,” Michie said in October 1985. “We are expecting the developers to donate the right-of-way for the extension of that road and to pay a third of the cost on each side with the city picking up the drainage problems and the center portion.”
Michie said that because developers would benefit most from the street’s expansion, it should be their responsibility to pay for the work.
The city’s share is estimated at *-$549,000.
Voters also approved the widening of Landa Street at the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railroad underpass .-and Seguin Avenue at the MoPac ‘Vailroad underpass. The city’s estimated $82,000 for that work is less Line Road will be a joint effort between the city and developers and
completion of the road depends largely on developers of property in than IO percent of a government grant shared with the Texas Department of Highways and Public Transportation The money will earn interest and illustrate to the state that the city is committed to widening the streets. "The highway department has been notified that we are set to proceed with the funding,” Thieleman said. “The underpasses involve the highway department and we are only funding a portion of the estimated construction costs.”
All contracts have been awarded for the work on the city’s three drainage projects — totaling $2.51 million — approved in the October 1985 bond issue election.
The high tide at West San Antonio and North Santa Clara will be solved first, with expected completion of a new drainage system at that intersection in December 1987.
Constant flooding at the intersection, often leading to the door of Crow Firestone, was caused by high commercial development in the drainage basin there. Existing drainage structures are too small and there aren’t

enough inlets in the area, according to engineers. For 8254,000, cub inlets will be added, along with a new pipe system to take the water to the Comal River.
At the same time, the standmg-water problem at Main Plaza will also be corrected. For 83,816, an enlarged storm drainage inlet will be constructed at the plaza, where water has been trying to run out of a hole that had been knocked out of the curb.
The most expensive drainage project — 81.61 million — is in the Landa Street-Fredericksburg Road area. The Landa-Fredericksburg intersection, which has commercial, residential and park development nearby, is one of the oldest in town. The drainage ditches are small and the streets carry a large portion of the storm water.
Improvements, expected to be completed in June 1988, will include construction of culverts and inlets on Wood Road, Fredericksburg Road, Landa, and the intersections of Inspiration Drive and Lockener Avenue, Howard and Parkview Boulevard, and Prince Drive and Parkview Boulevard.
The largest drainage area included in the work is the Green Valley drainage basin, including the South Guadalupe drainage basin, south of Interstate 35. Cost of the project is estimated at 8638,000.
Engineers propose culvert improvements on Old McQueeney Road and at the sanitary sewer plant and channel improvements along Old McQueeney Road to FM 725. South Guadalupe drainage basin work includes channel and culvert improvements.
All drainage improvements in that area will take the water to the Guadalupe River.
Thieleman expects the Green Valley drainage work to be completed by March 1988.
