BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – Judge Nelson Wolff provided an update on some of the ongoing Bexar County projects on Wednesday during the county state speech, where he also announced he would not stand for re-election in 2022.

Wolff addressed the San Pedro Creek Project, a new Bibliotech library at a downtown school, infrastructure projects, trail and stream projects, and provided an update on COVID-19.
On the San Pedro Creek project, Judge Wolff said the first phase of the tunnel entrance to Houston Street has been completed. The next phase goes from Houston Street to Cesar Chavez, which is expected to be completed by the end of next year. Phase three of Guadalupe at South Alamo is under construction and the final phase, which will connect San Pedro Creek to the San Antonio River, is also under development. The project completion target is 2023.
Wolff also said an additional $ 244 million was spent on trail and stream projects. There is funding for 27 stream and trail projects, including 35 miles of walking and biking trails and 12.5 miles of river and stream restoration.
The new Bibliotech educational library will be housed on the Fox Tech campus in downtown San Antonio. Judge Wolff said the $ 1.5 million project will create a unique all-digital library that will include a recording studio, robotics room, study rooms, community rooms and creative space.
Also in the county state address, Wolff spoke about Navistar showcasing its first all-electric truck, and it will be produced right here in the town of Alamo. Wolff said the company will begin production by the first quarter of 2022. And at least 600 people will be employed by the end of the quarter.
