Intersection of I-35 and TX-46

Vehicles line the intersection of I-35 and TX-46 on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Comal County Commissioners postponed one of two engineering and design studies for future road projects on Thursday.

Commissioners approved Pape-Dawson Engineers to perform studies on creating the Northwest Connector, a four-lane divided highway linking State Highway 46 and Resource Drive to Interstate 35 near the Schwab Road intersection. They opted to delay Poznecki-Camarillo Inc.’s start of similar studies on expanding Blanco Road (Farm-to-Market Road 2696) from SH 46 in Bulverde to the Kendall County line.

Will or Anyone:

"Funding to start the first phases of the Northwest Connector is in the county’s 2021 budget;"

What specifically is in the "First Phase" of this project? Surveying? Eminent domain for right-of-way? Planning, actual construction or both?

Thanks in advance.

Fred - the first two phases are for feasibility ($440K) and schematic and other engineering studies ($431K); ROW purchases, final designs (including environmental), utility relocations etc. total another $3.462 million, but don't hold me to that one.
