A $1 Billion Proposal to Add Toll Lanes to Loop 1604 — San Antonio’s First Toll Project — Gains Traction

San Antonio Express-News  reports, “The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority on [December 15] threw its support behind a proposal to add [managed] toll lanes to a heavily traveled section of Loop 1604 on San Antonio’s North Side, a move that could bring relief to drivers frequently stuck in gridlocked traffic. The plans, if approved, could widen a 23-mile span of Loop 1604 to eight lanes — four traveling in each direction — from Bandera Road to Interstate 35. That’s double the current capacity. . . . This would be San Antonio’s first toll project and construction could cost almost $1 billion.”
