NW Military Improvement and FM 1535 Expansion Projects

TxDOT, in cooperation with the City of Shavano Park and the Alamo Area Regional Mobility Authority (AARMA), is studying two different projects on NW Military Hwy/FM 1535. The projects are being developed to address unique safety and mobility needs for each area.

1535 Project Limits

NW Military Hwy Improvement Project 

  • Project Limits: Huebner Road to Loop 1604 
  • Planned Improvements: Addition of a center turn lane, sidewalks, bike accommodations, and improvements to intersections

FM 1535 Expansion Project

  • Project Limits: Loop 1604 to Shavano Ranch Road
  • Planned Improvements: Expand to 4 lanes, addition of center turn lane, raised median, sidewalks, bike accommodations, and improvements to intersections

Project Timeline

The project kicked off in mid-2017 and it is anticipated that design will be complete in early-2019. General construction target dates are anticipated in late-2019 for the FM 1535 Expansion Project and late-2020 for the NW Military Hwy Improvement Project. 

In addition to our planning work for NW Military Hwy/FM 1535, TxDOT is also constructing a turnaround lane on Loop 1604 for eastbound traffic to U-turn to head west in 2018.
