Traffic counts to be collected on SH 16 (Bandera Road)

Where are the cars coming from and where are they going on SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604? These are questions that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is answering as the agency kicks off a new study to review possible improvements along SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604. 

Traffic counting equipment and survey crews will be seen along the corridor starting in December 2018. 

TxDOT is working closely with officials from the cities of Leon Valley and San Antonio to study congestion within the project corridor. Earlier this year, the City of San Antonio announced plans to study land use and economic development opportunities along SH 16 (Bandera Road) in a separate effort as part of the SA Tomorrow Corridor Plan. 

According to the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, the 6.5-mile stretch of SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604 is the 8th most congested road in the region and one of the top 100 most congested in the State of Texas. 

For ongoing TxDOT project updates, community members are invited to email their names and contact information to or contact the TxDOT Public Information Office at or (210) 615-5839.
