San Antonio, TX – In a significant development for the Loop 1604 North Expansion Project, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has announced a long-term full closure of the Loop 1604 westbound (WB) to eastbound (EB) frontage road turnaround, just before the IH-10 interchange. This closure is scheduled to be in effect from Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2023, through January 2024, weather permitting.
The closure is part of the ongoing Loop 1604 North Expansion Project, a crucial initiative aimed at enhancing transportation infrastructure and addressing the growing needs of the community. TxDOT is actively working on various aspects of the project to ensure a smoother and more efficient traffic flow in the Loop 1604 corridor.
The full closure of the Loop 1604 WB to EB frontage road turnaround is a necessary measure to facilitate construction activities and ensure the safety of both motorists and construction crews. During this period, motorists are advised to be aware of the closure and plan their routes accordingly.
For Loop 1604 WB frontage road traffic seeking access to the WB to EB turnaround just before the IH-10 interchange, a designated detour route has been established. Motorists will be directed to continue along the Loop 1604 WB frontage road under IH-10. They will then utilize the signalized left turn at the IH-10 EB frontage road to continue onto the Loop 1604 EB frontage road.
While TxDOT understands that road closures can inconvenience the community, the agency emphasizes the long-term benefits of the Loop 1604 North Expansion Project. The improvements are designed to accommodate the area’s growing population and enhance overall traffic efficiency.
Motorists are encouraged to stay informed about project updates, closure details, and any changes in schedules. TxDOT will provide regular updates through official channels to ensure the community remains well-informed.
As with any construction project, weather conditions may impact the timeline, and TxDOT appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation during this critical phase of the Loop 1604 North Expansion Project.
