Congested intersection in Boerne gets makeover

SAN ANTONIO – An already congested intersection in Boerne is expected to become even more crowded, but the Texas Department of Transportation has a few plans to get traffic moving quickly again.

TxDot hosted an open house Tuesday night to show designs for proposed improvements along I-10 and Scenic Loop Road.

The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and traffic operations at this intersection.

Those who attended were able to ask questions about the project and give their feedback.

One resident said it's about time these changes are being made.

This is long overdue, it's great, I'm all for it. It's (going) to be easy to get the students in and out, get people on their way to work, north and south without all the frustration," said Rod Fowler. "People get upset and take that on the road with them, and this will take care of it."

The project will be funded by TxDot and the city of Boerne. The proposal received the approval needed, and construction is expected to begin this fall.
