Traffic Improvements

Our beautiful town of Boerne consistently receives honors on “Top Places to Live” lists as an ideal destination for families, retirees and businesses. As a result, the rapid rate of growth in residential, commercial and mixed-use development has resulted in the need for considerable traffic improvements. We visited with Kendall County and TxDOT to learn what’s in store for our roadways.

Area: I-10 Managed Lanes between

A managed lane operates separately from the general purpose mainlanes and incorporates a combination of pricing strategies, vehicle eligibility and access control. The managed lanes will be added to approximately 5.7 miles of the I-10 corridor. The number of existing general purpose lanes will remain, and the use of managed lanes will involve a choice: utilized free of charge by mass transit, military, emergency responders and registered vanpools – all others would pay a toll.

Scope of Project:

• Expanding I-10 to a total of eight lanes (four in each direction)

• The additional four lanes would be managed lanes (two in each direction)

• Constructing entry and exit access points in each direction in the vicinity of Dominion Drive

• Existing general purpose (non-toll) lanes will remain

Construction Dates:

Begin Late 2016 to Early 2017, End 2020
