TxDOT holds open house about I-35 improvements

Open house used to gather feedback

TxDOT hosted an open house for people interested in learning about proposed improvements for the I-35 corridors in Bexar and Guadalupe counties.

The purpose of these open houses is to gather feedback from the public on potential transportation improvements. The feedback will be taken into consideration for future planning.

The open house included stations with different design plans. It helped people understand what some future improvements could look like. People have mixed feelings on whether Tex-Dot should build a toll road.

Joan Korte is against a toll road being built.

"I believe that our taxes our gas taxes have paid for these roads already to slap a toll on it just to build up the TxDOT coffers I don't think is right," said Korte.

Larry Goss thinks something needs to be done to be able to move around the city easier.  

"I hope to adopt at least toll roads and some expansion of the highways to alleviate some of the traffic problems that San Antonio presently has," said Goss.

If you missed Wednesday night’s open house, there will be another one Thursday night at Joseph Hopkins Elementary School's cafeteria from 6 to 8 p.m.
