Money for 1604 and 281 expansions approved - San Antonio Express-News

281 from 1604 north to Stone Oak Parkway and 1604 on the far west will become bonafide freeways!

Glad to hear it. That's good for the people that reside on those ends of town. Personally I'd like to see the DeZavala/IH10W project expedited and also the widening of IH10W to 1604. And please TXDOT, do something to improve the IH10W/1604 interchange. Like completely redoing it.

The Cloverleaf is fine the way it is, you just have to train the people to use it correctly. Plus the fact that people have to yield to traffic coming on to a road that they are all ready on(and have the right of way on) is what messes up .

My neighbor just sold his house in TWO weeks. Couldn't be happier about that either.

well gee....given all the perks of my part of town and the fact that you can't enjoy them....now I just feel bad for YOU.
But who is going to move into your neighbor's house?

I second bresilhac, the IH10 and 1604 interchange is not ok. Everybody is switching lanes with each other to get off and on 1604/IH10. Naturally that is going to screw traffic up. i take military all the way from 1604 to 410 in the morning because it 15 min faster than going through that nonsense. 10 traffic lights are not supposed to be faster than an interstate

I used the frontage roads to go from I-10 to 1604 and vice versa. Works better and seems safer.

A cloverleaf with that much traffic is not efficient. A new five stack interchange is badly needed for 1604/10. Hopefully, funding is secured in the not too distant future.

I would assume whoever brought it.

Newk, Save your concern for Stone Oak. We are doing just fine! Unless I need to go to the airport (20 minute drive tops) I rarely have to leave the area. Great places to eat, drink, shop, worship, & be merry within a three mile radius. Life is good
