Open House 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Public Hearing - 6:00 p.m.
The purpose of the public hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project. The proposed project consists of reconfiguration of the Loop 1604 at FM 2696 (Blanco Road) interchange from Huebner Road to Stone Oak Parkway along Loop 1604, and from Madera Parkway to Country Club Lane along Blanco Road to improve traffic operations and mobility. Project schematics and displays will be available for viewing at 5 p.m. with the public hearing starting at 6 p.m. Comments must be received on or before April 12, 2019 to be a part of the official hearing record.
Proposed improvements would modify the interchange at Loop 1604 and FM 2696 (Blanco Road) from a conventional diamond to a diverging diamond interchange; add additional turn lanes and medians at the interchange; modify existing bicycle and pedestrian accommodations; add collector-distributor lanes along Loop 1604 from Huebner Road to Stone Oak Parkway; widen existing bridges spanning Panther Springs Creek; and add an additional bridge over Panther Springs Creek to accommodate proposed collector-distributor lanes. The proposed project would require approximately 1.4 acres of new right of way.
Although additional right of way is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners, such as the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program, and information about the tentative schedule for right of way acquisition may be obtained at the public hearing or from the District Office at the address listed below.
TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (210) 541-1912 at least 4 working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
