5 p.m. Open House
6 p.m. Formal Hearing
The purpose of the public hearing is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to FM 471 from SH 211 to Old FM 471 in Bexar and Medina County. Displays will be available for viewing at 5:00 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 6:00 p.m. and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Feb. 6, 2019 to be a part of the official hearing record.
The proposed project would expand the existing FM 471 (Culebra Road) from SH 211 to Old FM 471 from a 2-lane undivided roadway to a 4-lane divided roadway with turn lanes and raised medians, a total distance of approximately 3 miles. The proposed improvements would include drainage improvements, bicycle and pedestrian accommodations, and an overpass at SH 211 over FM 471, to connect existing SH 211 north of FM 471 to the proposed SH 211 extension south of FM 471 (project managed by Bexar County). The proposed FM 471 typical section would consist of four 11- and 12-ft travel lanes (two in each direction), a 16-ft median, 5-ft wide dedicated bike lanes, and 6-ft wide sidewalks within a right-of-way (ROW) of 120 ft on FM 471. The purpose of the proposed project is to improve mobility, reduce traffic delays and improve safety conditions along the corridor.
The existing facility is within a variable ROW between 80- and 120-ft wide. The proposed right of way width will be 120 feet for the length of the corridor. Approximately 6.54 acres of additional ROW will be required for the proposed improvements. Although additional ROW is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced.
