In just a few years the San Antonio-Austin I-35 corridor will be melded into a mega-metro area.

It could happen, but I'm betting on at least a decade.

In 15 years and the region will have 5+ million people and then they should be connected if people are willing to fight what 35 would become.

Not sure how long that will take to occur. Two cities between San Antonio and Austin (San Marcos and New Braunfels) could each be their own metro areas if they were not already part of SA and ATX. That area is definitely filling in with lots of sub-divisions and commercial development.

Wait. This issue has already been addressed before. Unless it is just a corridor you are speaking about, as best I've been able to figure out with a pencil, in order for the two cities to grow together for a distance greater than a 120 miles end to end, as a similar metropolitan area as North Texas that is (only seventy miles), it would need to grow to a total combined population of about 100,000,000.

The figure is exponential. In other words, for every mile the cities expand their territories outwards, the greater the population increase is going to be.

In the case of San Antonio / Austin, the area would be larger than Los Angeles even.
