A nearly 5 mile section of 1604 on the Northwest Side will be expanded to four lanes in the next several years through a TxDOT project that could include the 151/1604 interchange project that was stopped indefinitely last year.

4.7 miles of 1604 from Bandera to Culebra will be expanded to four lanes. At the moment, the Texas Department of Transportation is deciding between four different construction companies who will design and build the project.

Pothole filled roads, bumpy highways and shaky bridges in Texas are posing mounting challenges to Texas drivers, according to a new report from TRIP, a Washington, DC based national transportation research organization.

Of the 100 transportation challenges identified in the report, five out of the top 50 are located in the San Antonio area.
