FM 1103 Expansion

I went to the meeting to discuss the expansion of FM 1103 to IH-10 on 4/20/2006. I didn't feel that we are hearing everything concerning this expansion. It is my understanding the reason to have FM 1103 expanded is due to the building of new homes in the area. The other reasons, that we are not hearing, is it also to relieve the traffic from IH-35, FM 46, and FM 1604. This would be another way for the 18 wheelers to get to the other side of San Antonio without using the existing roads. Because of the poor design and poor planning for expansion by TXDOT, the existing roads would cost to much to widen.

The residents of Cibolo area would have to deal with the Hazardous Cargo 18 wheelers plus many others. This is going to destroy the country living we are accustom to, the noise is going to be overwhelming.

If TXDOT is worried about getting residents off of I-35 there are many back roads to get to I-10. My question to TXDOT is how many residents need on the East side of I-10, there is not much over there. I admit I go to downtown where I work and I use I-10 to get there, but I use existing roads to get there. I feel there are small number of residents in the Cibolo area that need to use I-10 to get to work or do their shopping.

Another thing TXDOT is not making known to the Cibolo residents is that they are talking about extending FM 3009 to IH-10, along with an expansion of FM 1518 because they are building subdivisions along FM 1518. If the expansion of FM 3009 is expanded to IH-10 there are going to be more subdivisions built along that route.

I have also heard about another loop around San Antonio which would be further out than FM 1604. What is this road suppose to accomplish?

We as well went to the so called, "stakeholders" meetings and the proposed six lane road that got narrowed down to three choices directly impacts our ranch and home. We moved here to this area to get away from congestion and in our opinion there isn't any! Why on earth would you need a six lane road that goes through farm and ranch land, if you (Cibolo city council types) were not wanting growth? All subdivisions do is crowd and congest, without adding to the tax base, as it is all eaten up by schools and such. This area is such a disaster, we daily kick ourselves for moving here. And then there is the TTC-35!

I haven't attended any of these meetings. Guess I should. I thought that the expansion was going to be from IH-35 through FM 1103 all the way down to Lower Seguin Road and expanding Stolte Road to IH-10.

My mom's house is on Stolte Road and I would hate to see that much traffic right in front of her house.

Thanks Jim for your information. I purchased a home in Cibolo because of the size and good schools. I think it is growing too fast already. The second year after Steele High School was built it was already had maximum enrollment of students.

I will have to start attending those meetings.
