The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing improvements to FM 471, from SH 211 to Old FM 471, in Bexar and Medina County, Texas.
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.
The purpose of the public meeting will be to share project information and updates, present proposed schematics of the project and collect input from the community. TxDOT is committed to working closely with the community on this project. All input will be considered as TxDOT moves forward in developing a plan that will enhance the safety of this corridor while preparing for future growth.
