State of Texas / Department of Transportation

A major highway closure is taking place this weekend in San Antonio.  TxDOT will close the main lanes of I-10 in both directions at Fair Oaks Parkway beginning at 5 a.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. Monday.

In order to keep traffic flowing as smoothly as possible, TxDOT has created some two-lane exit ramps to the access roads.

“What we’re actually going to do is convert this small section from the temporary ramp, up to Fair Oaks Parkway,” said TxDOT engineer Joe Mendez. “We’re going to make sure that traffic is only traveling in one direction.”

For numerous years, many school districts across Texas have seen the state’s portion of their funding steadily decrease.  House Bill 21 this legislative session was an effort to begin turning that trend around by rewriting what’s referred to as “the formulas”- the equations used for determining how much state funding is appropriated.
