Courthouse visitors facing longer walks
For an estimated three- to four-month period set to begin in roughly two weeks, access to the Uvalde County Courthouse, Uvalde Leader-News, and other locations in the northeast square of downtown will be inaccessible via North East and East North streets.
At that time, construction crews with Alvin E. Stock Contractors out of Eagle Pass will begin work to repair utilities on North East and East North streets in Uvalde. Repairs are estimated to take two months.
Afterward, Eagle Pass-based A.E. Hiller & Sons crews will begin paving the roadway. That project is estimated to take six weeks.
During that time, visitors needing access to the courthouse or downtown businesses may park along North Getty Street, or in the city- or county-owned parking lots nearby. The city’s lot is located on Nopal Street, next to the St. Henry de Osso Family Center, while the county’s lot is adjacent to the former jail facility.
