Why did you close down the traffic light at 1604 and 151? Traffic is now a nightmare there! All those cars funneled into a single lane to enter 1604 from Alamo Ranch ? Whose bright idea was that? It took over an hour to get to 151 this morning (August 1)! And looking at it now at 4:30 p.m. with that map link you gave, traffic is already RED for that whole "extra 2 miles" and you are saying it'll be this bad until next year? Great planning there!

Why was there no direct connector planned from westbound Hwy 151 to northbound Lp 1604 in the current project? Will there be one in the future? The traffic is clearly alleviated during the morning commute now the flyover is complete, but the afternoon traffic gets worse and worse as the 151 traffic shares the entrance with the 1604-Culebra exit traffic.
There was a question concerning connecting FM 471 (Culebra) to Hwy 151 earlier that still has not been addressed. The folks that live on Culebra have no access to 151. The ramp that was built was blocked off to them and the light that was in place was taken down. Why was this done before the link with ARP was complete? Are there any plans on giving this growing community access to 151 in the interim?
Y'all pose some great questions, and we know several share some of the frustrations that are expressed here. To answer these questions, we posted a video earlier this week to YouTube (it was plugged into our last post). Matt, you're right - it took us a bit too long to get this done. We should have had a vid like this posted two weeks ago.
Better late than never, though. Without further ado, here you go:
