Another expansion on Lp 1604 to be discussed

It's not on the northside, nor on the far west side. That doesn't mean we're not paying attention, though.
There's this seven-mile stretch between US 281 and Elmendorf that's currently a two-lane country highway we need to expand to improve safety and prepare for increased capacity.
We need your insights to make this happen effectively. We'll be hosting an open house tonight between 5:30 and 7:30 at the Southside High School cafeteria. You'll need to be there to check out our design and the features involved with this expansion. You'll also get to visit with the engineers designing the project. They'll have notepads ready for your comments regarding their plans.
Here's a snapshot of what we've got on deck:
  • Expanding Lp 1604 to a four-lane divided highway
  • Add pedestrian accommodations at various select locations
  • No additional right-of-way acquired for this work
This is your chance to influence the design of this project - if you're one of those who live, work or play in this area, be sure to come out and see us!
