281-1604 Ramps Plan Cleared

By Bill O'Neil

Getting around San Antonio's fast-growing northside will eventually get a little easier--with City Council giving the go-ahead to some new highway ramps.  

The connector ramps will be built at the U.S. Highway 281-Loop 1604 interchange.  

"It's a terriffic project--it will be a huge help to interconnectivity and access in the area" said City Councilman Joe Krier.  

Fellow Councilman Rey Saldana agreed.  

"I know there is a tremendous need--and we've been talking about 281 and 1604 for a long time" Saldana said.  

The $30 million plan includes cash to purchase some land from the Texas Department of Transportation--which will be used as part of the expansion of the cnvention center.
