PROJECT INFO: Loop 1604 Redland to Green Mountain

This page last updated June 6, 2018

Project locationLocation: Loop 1604 between Redland Rd. and Green Mountain Rd.

Status: Construction to start in late 2018

Description
This project will reverse the entrance and exit ramps in both directions between Redland and Bulverde (i.e. the current exit ramp locations will be switched to entrance ramp locations and vice-versa; see diagrams below.) It will also add turnarounds for both directions at Bulverde Rd. and repave Loop 1604 between Redland and Green Mountain. While
this is a relatively small project, it should make an appreciable improvement for eastbound Loop 1604 traffic near Redland Road (see below for an explanation why.)

How this project will help
By moving the eastbound Bulverde exit ramp closer to Redland, the right lane that ends there today will instead exit to the frontage road. Since much of the traffic on 1604 at that location subsequently exits at Bulverde, having that traffic exit at the bottleneck location instead of squeezing into the remaining two lanes should help to significantly reduce or even eliminate the chronic congestion there.

On both sides, reversing the ramps will provide better access to and from the properties between Bulverde and Redland, i.e. traffic going to or coming from those locations will not have to go through the Bulverde or Redland intersections. This should especially benefit the westbound side.

The turnarounds at Bulverde will remove that traffic from those intersections.

Timeline
Construction will begin in mid to late 2018 and should take about half a year to complete.
