TxDOT, as the lead agency, in coordination with the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and the city of Shavano Park, are proposing to improve NW Military Highway (FM 1535) from Loop 1604 to Huebner Road in Bexar County, Texas.

Displays will be available for viewing at 5:00 p.m., with the formal hearing beginning at 6:00 p.m. Comments must be received on or before July 31, 2019, to be a part of the official hearing record.
The proposed improvements include adding a continuous two-way left turn lane along NW Military Highway from Loop 1604 to Huebner Road, a distance of approximately two miles.
