The Texas Department of Transportation is studying potential improvements along SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604, within the cities of Leon Valley and San Antonio. SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604 is the 8th most congested road in the region and one of the top 100 most congested in the State of Texas.

The SH 16 (Bandera Road) project will involve the collection of traffic data to analyze project corridor congestions issues, the consideration of potential improvements, and the preparation of various environmental studies as well as the consideration of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. TxDOT is working closely with officials from the cities of Leon Valley and San Antonio to gather data and identify community values and concerns.

The proposed improvements will ultimately be based on traffic, local and regional access needs, safety, the avoidance and minimization of environmental impacts, and the consideration of community input.

Anticipated Project Schedule

The Traffic and Feasibility Study, development of project engineering schematics, and environmental studies will commence in December 2018 and is anticipated to take approximately 48 months.

Public Involvement

Your input is a key part of project development. Public involvement opportunities will be provided throughout this process.
