VRX serves as the prime provider to TxDOT San Antonio on this approximately $192M urban transportation project.
VRX Project Manager Praxedis “Pete” Garza, PE, is leading the VRX construction management team; the project broke ground in spring 2017.
The U.S. 281 Phase 1 project extends from the Loop 1604 interchange to Stone Oak Parkway in Bexar County. This project adds two general purpose non-toll lanes in each direction, one HOV/transit lane in each direction, four direct connectors to Loop 1604, and one direct T-ramp connection to the new VIA Park & Ride Facility at Stone Oak Parkway. The project will include frontage roads as well as bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Auxiliary lanes will be added as needed.
VRX’s comprehensive Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) services include environmental compliance (Task Leader Jim York), utility engineering as well as utility construction verification (Task Leader Jon King, PE), resident engineer (Task Leader Carlos Ayala, PE), and construction inspection.
