TxDOT meetings to discuss FM 1518, Loop 1604 and Blanco Road improvements

Both meetings are open to the public

SAN ANTONIO – As San Antonio continues to grow, so, too, does the need to expand area roads. The Texas Department of Public Safety will hold meetings to discuss improvements to two roads.

The first meeting is Wednesday night in Schertz to discuss the widening of FM 1518 from Interstate 10 to FM 78.

The two-hour meeting will be held at the Grand Ballroom of the Civic Center and begin at 5:30 p.m.

The project would add another travel lane in each direction, a raised median, a shared use path and sidewalks.

On Thursday, another meeting is planned to talk about improvements to the Loop 1604 and Blanco Road intersection.

TxDOT is looking to add lanes at the interchange, reconfigure the ramp and add changes from Huebner Road to Stone Oak Parkway.

The meeting will also last two hours and begin at 5 p.m. at the San Antonio Shrine Auditorium.

Both meetings are free and open to the public.
