Hey, did y'all notice what's going on at 281 & 1604? They've set up traffic study strips at the entrances and exits at Sonterra & the 281 entrance & exit to the frontage road. And I saw a "traffic study in progress" sign on a random car with a guy sitting in it.

Is this the preliminary traffic study to building the north ramps?!

LOL! What studies are needed to see if improvements are needed in that intersection.

I thought the sign that says “prepare to stop” are hilarious.

yeah those traffic counters go as far north as 281/bulverde. i doubt any construction starts until 2017, just as they said. had 281 been tolled, i bet construction would have started early next year. they're in no hurry for this expansion now.

Be lucky if it is 1/2 way done by 2020 – typical “mañana” speed for SA.

Yep - dirt turning in 2017 with full completion in 2022.

I'd guess the 1604 connectors would be done by 2020:

Passage of highway money will help fund 281 expansion

This would be done, but thanks to Hall and her supporters we all have to wait....

San Antonio is slow? They have tried everything to get this done and have been blocked.

So sad people live in misery.

Thanks to Hall we don't have a toll road. I don't call the previous toll road plan trying everything.

A whole generation of people have suffered from the delaying of this expansion. That's time sitting in your car that you cannot get back. So who do you think is really winning here? Not to mention that only a few lanes would have been tolled, not the entire freeway. You still would have had options of free lanes. But Hall supporters are very good at selective memory and only believing what they want to believe.
