SAN ANTONIO – The long-awaited expansion of Highway 281 is set to begin soon.

Ground will be broken on the project Friday morning.

The expansion between Loop 1604 and the Bexar-Comal County line is happening in two phases. Construction on the first phase of the $374.3 million project begins in May and will add non-tolled express lanes between Loop 1604 and Stone Oak parkway.

The second phase will begin in 2019, starting just north of Stone Oak parkway, continuing to the county line.
