[i] Information SAN ANTONIO FREEWAY HISTORY
Read my essay on San Antonio's freeway history for the Express-News' Tricentennial series here. The full history of the freeway system is available on this site here.

The San Antonio Area Freeway System

This page last updated July 28, 2017

The San Antonio metropolitan area is fortunate to have one of the most comprehensive urban freeway systems in North America.  In fact, Bexar County has one of the largest systems of state highways in the nation and one of the highest ratios of freeway miles per capita in the US.  In 2014, there were 1,004 centerline miles and 3,384 lane miles of state-maintained roadways in Bexar County.  Approximately 256 centerline miles and 1,900 lane miles of that total were freeways.  A study by the Surface Transportation Policy Project in 1998 ranked San Antonio's highways as the best among the largest US urban areas.

This site covers the San Antonio freeway system in-depth.  Below, you'll find links to general information about the local freeways and their history and pages with in-depth details about each freeway.  There's also information on some other area highways, details of freeway construction projects, information about TransGuide, and lots of photos.
