$83M Proposal on Tap to Ease San Antonio’s Transportation Woes
San Antonio’s Transportation Committee approved an $83.5-million-dollar package to help ease traffic woes throughout various parts of the metro. The package, which includes $23 million to build an overpass at South Zarzmora and Frio City Roads, will be presented to the city council during the remainder of 2017.
In addition to the overpass, the plan calls for creation of pedestrian and bicycle lanes at Roosevelt, from St. Mary’s Street to Loop 410, as well as road expansions on South New Braunfels. The project also calls for city-wide pedestrian and bike mobility studies, and corridor mobility planning.
The city would be responsible for approximately 20% of the cost – about $16.7 million – which would be funded by bond 2017, future fiscal budgets and future bonds.
