Construction Updates

The road to success is always under construction

UIW Construction Updates

Be patient. Stay informed. Give yourself extra time to arrive at your destination. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your patience.

The City of San Antonio has closed all westbound traffic on Hildebrand between Broadway and the San Antonio River for work on an 18-month project. Traffic on Hildebrand will flow east bound only. This work will affect roadways and entrances to the University of the Incarnate Word's main campus. Intermittent gate closures should be expected, please allow extra time for your commute.

Our goal is to keep everyone informed so you may plan your route accordingly. We encourage you to refer to this page regularly for information on UIW construction projects.

Note: It is illegal to walk through a construction zone. This may result in fines if caught by City Officers. In addition to being illegal, if an injury occurs, insurance may not cover the medical expense.
