Loop 1604 Redland to Green Mountain
page last updated June 6, 2018
1604 between Redland Rd. and Green Mountain Rd.
Status: Construction to start in late 2018
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
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.)
CURRENT RAMP ARRANGEMENT
PLANNED RAMP ARRANGEMENT
project will help
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
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.
