New frontage road to open in Seguin

Friday we will open a new frontage road along the westbound lanes of I-10 between Texas Highway 46 and Farm to Market 464 in Seguin, making an easier commute for many who live, work or play along this corridor.

The road will be open in time for the afternoon commute.

Though most of the frontage road is one-way, a small segment on each end of the frontage road will permit two-way traffic. These two-way segments will run between Friesenhahn Road and Highway 46 on the east end, and between the westbound exit to FM 464 and FM 464 itself on the west end.

The frontage road, built by Angel Brothers Construction, was paid for entirely by local funds. The city of Seguin and the Seguin Economic Development Corporation combined for some $2.5 million of the project cost, and commercial developer NewQuest Properties contributed another $2.5 million. Work began in October 2013.

Honestly, this is a fantastic example of the department working with others to provide transportation infrastructure. A huge kudos to the local partners who have posted the funds to make this project happen.

Private commercial development along the frontage is expected to begin shortly, led by the folks at NewQuest. Ten driveway points were included along the frontage road to facilitate this development.
