Lone Star Parkway - Access via Culebra
Alamo Parkway - Access via Culebra
Roft Road - Access via Culebra

When Culebra is finally done, the situation will be much better. That road can be crazy in the afternoons. Yesterday, for example, the stoplight at Alamo Parkway (where the new Valero is) was flashing red (1560/Alamo Parkway direction) and yellow (Culebra direction). As you can imagine, traffic was messy with the lack of police direction...

Well, if you want to get technical on me... ... there's also the 1560 approach.

I'm pretty close to the church that's opposite the shooting range. You can hear faint "pops", but nothing that is -at any rate- an issue. The warmer weather dampens the noise even further.

Yeah, I thought about that one, especially since I take it just about every day to get to my parents' house in Helotes. (Waiting for our home in AR to finish...) Seriously, though, the access to AR is on par with others I have seen. It will undoubtedly make things easier once the Culebra widening project is completed.

Anyone else suspect that they'll rip up the current lanes on Culebra once they've got the new lanes finished? I've noticed (it's pretty obvious) that there are several stretches where the roadbed (new or old) is higher or lower than the other side.

I believe the plan is to do it in two phases. Should be all done by '09 - '10. For a sec there, I thought Jim's was going to get their own private ramp!

Thanks, Latinocowboy. I assumed that the road would be done by next calendar year. Of course, I was HOPING that it would be done much sooner! Oh well, one can always dream...

I didn't buy in DR Horton simply due to the pops from the shooting range. It bothered me enough. I'd suggest you go out there and listen for yourself. They're out there frequently enough.

We hardly hear the firing range pops. We mostly hear it when the wind is coming from the north and we have to be outside.

My son played soccer at the ACYSO fields off of 1560 this year. I think it might have been Dove hunting season, at any rate it sounded like a warzone for several weeks during soccer season.

A co-worker lives in a DR Horton home that is not too far from Roft Road where the range is. He has heard shooting from there three times (in his house) since he moved in last year.

I'm on the other side of the church that's across from the range. I work from home, and I seldom hear the pops. There are times where there's a competition and you may get a weekend, or several weekdays in succession.
