why was the 1604 headed west towards UTSA closed temporarily a day or two ago? I was going East and ten or so police cars were blocking a section while workers were scrubbing the highway.

There was a huge accident.

Last weekend the highway was closed going eastbound on the northeast end on Sunday afternoon. Many thanks go out to the local media for not putting that little detail on their websites...

If you're talking about the area near Tradesman/Lockhill Selma, this is why: 1604 lanes at Tradesman reopened (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/Damage_to_bridge_closes_part_of_1604W.html - broken link)

I read about that, I can't imagine how it was for drivers commuting back home at that time.

My fiance takes that highway from around Red Land Rd to Blanco / Huebner. She said it was too backed up to even get on at that point, so she took a few backroads and made her way home with the help of her GPS.

Lucky her... I was stuck, literally, from beginning to end... people weren't letting others over to get off the highway to take the access roads or back streets... it was miserable. I almost took up smoking again.

Someone in our family commutes from San Marcos to 10/1604 daily (long story on why...but they do) and had to go down to 410 to get home. I think it only took them an extra 30 minutes to get home.

My wife was on 1604 at the time of the accident and got stuck by NW Military, near a bridge so nobody could drive over the grass to the access road. She said everybody was trapped and basically sat in their cars for two hours and thirty minutes twiddling their thumbs, not moving an inch.

Sorry for sliding out of topic, but Loop 1604 or as I like to call it Hell's Road, Is so jacked up, If its not the lights down towards the south west part of it, Its the two lanes that will cause accidents. I could of sworn I saw an Ingram Ready mix truck hit a stupid old lady at Potranco Road, The lady was at fault because she tried to make a left turn from the middle lane when Potranco has only 1 lane to turn Left LOL! since the truck was loaded the lady must of made some fudge on her depends ( sorry if its too harsh, but I had to let it out lol) the car ended about 100 ft past the intersection Luckly no one got hurt, Except for the Ingram driver his license expired on that day! OUCH!!!
