Loop 1604 Expansion – Update

The third of five segments of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Loop 1604 expansion in San Antonio got underway recently.  This phase of construction is part of TxDOT’s overall Loop 1604 North Expansion project aimed at improving 23 miles of Loop 1604 from Texas 16 (Bandera Road) to Interstate 35. The latest construction includes $244 million of improvements from Interstate 10 to U.S. 281 to help reduce congestion and increase safety and mobility. The work involved in this latest segment will include expanding the main lanes to a 10-lane expressway, adding a high-occupancy vehicle lane in each direction, upgrading the Blanco Road intersection with a new diverging diamond design, improving the auxiliary lanes and ramps, and building accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians. The project is intended to address current and future traffic issues as more drivers are expected on San Antonio’s roads. By 2045, TxDOT estimates there will be nearly 300,000 drivers on Loop 1604 daily. The work completed on the third segment could improve travel times on that stretch of Loop 1604 up to 76 percent, according to TxDOT officials.
