Frontage road conversion pushed back ... again

The conversion of I-10 frontage roads between Boerne Stage Road and Dominion Drive was pushed back - again - due to wet weather issues.

The conversion had already been pushed back a week, as posted earlier this month.

At issue here is the effect on necessary work wet weather has. In reality every single day of wet weather means about three days of delay as the ground dries back out so proper compaction can be reached where needed. Items needing completed before the switch can happen include:
  • Finish some concrete and guardrail work near the new westbound exit to Leon Springs
  • Lay asphalt, curb and sidewalk at the east-to-west connector coming from Leon Springs
  • Complete the westbound exit ramp to Leon Springs
  • Signal light completion
Texas Sterling Construction says they'll have these items complete and ready to switch traffic during the day Wednesday, March 30. The guys will work on the eastbound side first then move over to the westbound side.

The work should be finished before the evening commute gets going.
