Texas DOT continues its planned road construction during pandemic
Modification projects and road construction in the Houston area continue to move forward, requiring workers to ramp up their safety standards during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The TxDOT and Harris County Precinct 4 continue with modifications on small-scale road and drainage system projects, like drainage repairs on Champions Drive. The entities are also continuing larger projects during the pandemic, like the FM 1960/SH 6 bridge that runs over U.S. 290. Actually, construction is reportedly going faster than planned due to the decrease in traffic patterns in the area.

UTSA Continues Work On New Sports Center
Back in March the UTSA started work on the Roadrunner Athletics Center of Excellence (RACE). Located on the Southwest corner of the main campus, this will be a much-needed cutting edge training facility estimated to cost around $41.5 million.
The RACE facility is scheduled to be completed in the Sumer of 2021. In addition to spaces for academic study and offices for faculty, staff and coaches, it will also boast a sports medical center, strength training and conditioning area, locker rooms and a practice field.
Construction on the future home of UTSA Athletics has continued over the past two months despite challenges from the current pandemic. Workers have cleared about 11 acres of ground and are prepping the foundation of the field base. Implementing sub-grade utilities are next, followed by retaining walls, structural reinforcement and hydrotherapy pools.
