I wish they'd expand streets that actually need expansions. 410/zarzamora looks very nice with its 4 lanes, but it's always deserted. What they really did was provide street racers with an ample track.

Yep, Babcock outside of 1604 is another one I always wonder about. It was completely redone a few years back from Kyle Seale out to Scenic Loop Road, and there's rarely much traffic on it.

Some roads need renewing more than others, but I guess it's the ones that have the biggest "advocates" that are the priority!

De Zavala/I-10 area Road Construction Traffic

September 2010. So there you go. But I had heard that not until the end of this summer would it be finished. I am glad they finished early. But, next thing we have to deal with them is them changing the De Zavala Entrance/Exit Ramp. It is just horribly designed.

Ashbeeigh, are you exiting at De Zavala now to get to Tanglewood, or are you still exiting at Huebner? Now the frontage road approaching Huebner Road is a mess because they closed the entrance ramp between Huebner Road and Wurzbach.
Oh no. I drive down to De Zavala now. I took the access road home from the Egg and I last Saturday in the middle of construction. Not for a long time I will I exit Huebner.

That "significant increase in traffic flow" you mention is going to be a welcome improvement in my Hausman road resident opinion. You see, it's already seeing use as a major thoroughfare, there is no flow at peak hours, it's gridlock. The noise and other aspects of so many vehicles using Hausman is already here. We can attribute that to the recent years of urban sprawl that has given us multiple mass housing neighborhoods, apartments and townhomes, stores, bars, Brandeis High School, and soon, UTSA's sports complex.

We've seen this in the 90's with Wurzbach, the '00s with DeZavala, Now it's Hausman. The growing pains have spread far to the former suburbs.

The new road should help considerably in allowing vehicular commuters to get where they need to be plus integrate pedestrian and bicycle options that do not exist at all at this time. Local residents and students will have a safer and more environmentally and health friendly option for walking or riding between the Leon Creek Greenbelt, John Igo Library, Bonnie Conner Park, Brandeis High School, UTSA sports complex, and stores or eateries.

Absolutely, given my wish I'd love to roll it back to Hausman Road, circa 1990's. When the only commuters were the residents. When I had a western horizon to watch the sunset. When I would watch the cows graze on the adjacent ranch. When I could see so many stars from my yard. When the only hellraisers in the night were the coyotes. Sadly, those days are gone.

I cry for you. I moved to this side of town in 2010, and was not born or raised here.

Yes. And when you had to drive to Wurzbach to get anything close to groceries.

Yep, that's right!
The only commercial entities on Hausman were the Southwestern Bell (now SBC) substation and the Diamond Shamrock (now Valero).
Albertson's and HEB on Wurzbach were the go-to places for groceries, Western Auto on NW Military was the closest auto parts, and for senior lunch (Clark) it was a blast down the old 2 lane IH-10 to Wurzbach for Mr. Gatti's or Sombrero Rosa. Good times!

Thanks everyone for your input, I did read in the paper the other day about Hausman Rd being part of the bond package that was passed. I've always been amazed that there aren't even any sidewalks on this side of Hausman, save for a little piece in front of the two subdivisions, then it just disappears. My parents were down here visiting last week from Denver and kept on commenting on how horrible the traffic looked on Hausman going east. Fortunately I work from home and my daughter's school is across Hausman in the next subdivision, so I don't really have to deal with it that much. But I sure feel for everyone that does!!
