Update on Loop 1604 construction

If you hadn't noticed by now, there is quite a bit of construction on the northwest side of Loop 1604. Here's an update on some changes and closures you need to know about. We apologize for the inconvenience. We understand that no one likes construction. But we are trying our best to get these projects completed and traffic flowing. We appreciate your patience greatly!

Loop 1604 - Culebra Road to Potranco Road
If you are not a follower of TxDOTSanAntonio on Twitter you missed a tour of a traffic switch scheduled for this Saturday between 6 a.m. and 12 noon on Loop 1604 SB between Culebra Road and Military Drive. Have no fear, you can check out the video here.

Loop 1604 - Potranco Road to US 90
Tonight we do have a full mainlane closure at the interchange of Loop 1604 at US 90 for a deck pour for the southbound/eastbound direct connector. The closure starts at 9 p.m. and will wrap up by 5 a.m. DETOUR: Northbound traffic will have take a right onto the eastbound frontage road and then enter US 90 eastbound mainlanes; continue on US 90 to the Military Drive exit and take the turnaround and re-enter the US 90 westbound mainlanes and exit Loop 1604 and take a right onto the Loop 1604 northbound mainlanes.

Loop 1604 at SH 16 (Bandera Road)
The westbound frontage road turnaround will be closed starting on Monday, August 6th at 5 a.m.  This closure will be approximately 4 months in duration. The turnaround is being closed to allow for modification of the turnaround as part of the current project that will provide intersection operational improvements at this busy intersection by utilizing an innovative traffic engineering solution described as Displaced Left Turns (DLT). In a DLT, left turn traffic shifts to the left side of the road. Left turns are “displaced” at a new crossover signal prior to the frontage road intersection.
