JBSA-Fort Sam Houston commuters, pedestrians need to exercise caution near active construction zone

502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The much-needed reconstruction of Wilson Way is underway. As construction progresses on Wilson Way, safety remains our top priority.

It is asked that pedestrians and commuters please refrain from cutting across the construction zone, especially near the Commissary parking lot to Military Clothing Sales. Jumping barricades and cutting safety fences pose serious safety risks and disrupt construction efforts.

The impacts on traffic and the effectiveness of the detours continue to be monitored. One issue that has recently arisen is the occurrence of pedestrians jumping over the concrete barricades and even cutting the orange safety fence to cross from the Commissary parking lot to Military Clothing Sales. The contractor has mended the fence and Civil Engineers are working with 502nd Air Base Wing Safety to place additional barricades/signage up to prevent pedestrians from jumping into a construction area.
