CPS Energy project to cause lane closures along South Highway 181

Repairs to aging overhead electrical wires on San Antonio’s Southeast Side will require CPS Energy to close parts of Hwy. 181 starting this weekend. 

Starting on Sunday, March 12, through Wednesday, March 15, the electric utility service company will enforce intermittent lane closures from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, according to a news release.

Westbound lanes just west of the CPS Energy Calaveras Power station road and eastbound lanes just west of Laguna Road will also be closed, the municipal electric utility service company says. 

“No power outages are anticipated with either project and traffic control will be provided for both,” the release added. “Drivers are asked to find alternative routes and avoid the areas, if possible, during the project dates. CPS Energy reminds drivers to Move Over or Slow Down, per State law, for crew and driver safety.”

The project near Hwy. 181 is referred to as the “Braunig to Highland Hills” project. The job will consist of crews stringing in new overhead electrical wires for a roughly 6.9-mile segment of the Braunig to Highland Hills transmission line, according to company’s website.

“This infrastructure rebuild will replace existing transmission line with new transmission line structures and conductors from S.E. Military Drive to the Braunig Switchyard,” the website states.

CPS Energy is working with UTSA to complete soil sampling within the “transmission easement,” the company added. Residents that have the transmission lines crossing their property will be notified of soil sampling beforehand. Any other area residents affected by the closures will be contacted by the company and will receive additional details of the entire project, the release says.
