The bond proposal now before San Antonio voters includes $128 million for 17 drainage and flood-control improvement projects, including designs to relieve perennial problems at Woodlawn Lake and downtown on Interstate 35.
Several smaller projects target residential areas. And overall, more than 360 homes could be removed from flood plains if the improvements were completed, city officials said.
Early voting starts today on the $596 million bond package, which has five propositions for streets, bridges and sidewalks; drainage and flood control; parks, recreation and open space; library, museum and cultural arts facilities; and public safety facilities. Election day is May 12.
