Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018
6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.


The purpose of the open house is to gather input on the Fredericksburg Relief Route Study from business owners. The open house will discuss Main Street traffic and safety, strategies for promoting tourism and preserving historic sites. 


The City of Fredericksburg and Gillespie County, acting through the Gillespie County Relief Route Task Force and with support from the Texas Department of Transportation, are exploring a potential US 290 Fredericksburg relief route. The potential route would relieve traffic and improve mobility in downtown Fredericksburg by giving people the option to travel around, rather than directly through, the city. As traffic volumes and congestion continue to increase the need for a relief route has become an important safety and quality-of-life issue for the community.
