Also, the traffic will be crazy once they build the football stadium along Hausman. Glad I got out of that area awhile back.

So I found this in another post on this site: [url]http://www.loopnet.com/Attachments/9/6/E/96EDEAB0-E425-4962-A2E6-38F3ADC10D9D.PDF[/url]

I don't know if this is it for sure, but it looks about right. Roads from Hausman to De Zavala and Babcock, with homes and apartments in between.

Yep, that's the project in question.
A whole lot of housing going in there! The size and symmetrical facade of some currently under construction suggest duplexes may be part of the mix as well.

I'm not sure what traffic congestion this would solve, either. It would seem more prudent to build a road between W Hausman and UTSA Blvd, and kind of intersecting with Valero Way. This way the beginnings of a nice grid layout could be established. It would make my drive home from work a lot nicer! (Around 5:00 weekdays W Hausman is wayyy backed up.)

I have tried to find something online advising of the construction but San Antonio city website has nothing regarding a notice or even future plans. The bond provisions don't even make a mention!
This is what you're looking for:
http://www.sanantonio.gov/planning/G...s/1201GG03.pdf

The plan is to do exactly what you suspect-- run an arterial from Fox Park down to DeZavala where it makes the big turn. As for connecting Hausman to UTSA, that's in the plan too-- Hausman will arc north near Bentley Wells and intersect UTSA just west of Costco.

Hausman will have to become a full 4 lane road with turn lanes, etc. Let's rip it up and then let is stay like that for two years - like Babcock and DeZavala. They are still screwing around with that.

The 2012 bond issue includes funding to widen Hausman from 1604 to I-10. I believe (but I'm not positive) that actually includes the realignment to UTSA Blvd.

The DeZavala project began in September 2010 and is on-time and scheduled to be completed in June or July.

While it may be on time by their schedule, I must wonder why stretches are left with no one working on it for what seems a very long period.

I see no reason why if a crew is working around the bend on DeZ near the post office, others can't be doing the part by where Babcock turns off to go North.

Could be a number of reasons. They might be waiting for utility work to get done in one area, or waiting for something to cure, or waiting for the delivery of materiel. Or there could be a sequencing constraint. Most likely, though, it's about money-- hiring enough crew and/or equipment to work an entire project at once gets really expensive in a hurry. In order to keep costs down (and therefore our taxes down), tradeoffs have to be made. That's one.

More specifically, it won't go directly to the access road. The existing section between Bentley Wells and I-10 will still remain, but it will be something like "Old Hausman" and you'll have to make a right turn from eastbound Hausman to get to it. See the map I posted above.
