ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENT Loop 1604 From New Guilbeau Road to SH 151 San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas CSJ: 2452-01-050 September 2010

I. SURROUNDING AREA A. SETTING The proposed project is located on Loop 1604 from New Guilbeau Road to State Highway (SH) 151, a distance of approximately 3.5 miles, in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. The project limits include the existing right-of-way and easements between these termini, plus transitional areas beyond each terminus. The topography is generally rolling terrain ranging from an elevation of 976 feet above sea level at the southern project limit to 950 feet above sea level at the northern project limit. Two creeks and their tributaries (Culebra Creek and Helotes Creek) exist within the project study area. The proposed project is located within the San Antonio River Basin. The project is located in a developing area of San Antonio. As such, study area vegetation is well-maintained in keeping with commercial and residential development. According to the Vegetation Types of Texas (TPWD, 1984), the proposed project is located within vegetation type Mesquite-Live Oak-Bluewood Parks and Crops. Exhibit 1 shows the project location and limits. Photographs of the project area are in Appendix A. B. SURROUNDING LAND USE The land use adjacent to the existing roadway is urban developed with a variety of adjacent residential and commercial developments. Within the last two years, residential and commercial development has been explosive at the Loop 1604 intersections with New Guilbeau Road and Culebra Road which includes over 900,000 square feet of commercial development on 114 acres. The Country Home Learning Center (a private daycare facility) is located at 7611 Leslie Road near the intersection of Loop 1604 and Shaenfield Road. Northwest Vista College is located southeast of the project area at SH 151 and Loop 1604. Culebra Creek Park, located at 10919 Westwood Loop, is a 145-acre city park located within the limits of the proposed project that hosts practice youth sports fields for soccer, football, rugby and softball.

II. DESCRIPTION OF THE EXISTING FACILITY The existing Loop 1604 facility within the project limits is predominantly a 4-lane divided non accesscontrolled roadway with grassy median and open ditches. The existing right-of-way (ROW) is 350 feet (usual) throughout the project limits, widening to over 500 feet at Culebra Road and at SH 151. In both directions of Loop 1604, an existing pavement width of 38 feet is configured with two 12-ft lanes, a 4-ft inside shoulder, and 10-ft outside shoulder. The existing grassy median has a width of 64 feet. The current posted speed limit varies from 55 miles per hour (mph) at Shaenfield Road to 65 mph at Culebra Road. (See Exhibit 2: Existing Typical Sections). The existing 2009 average daily traffic (ADT) is approximately 61,466 vehicles per day (VPD). The length of the project on Loop 1604 between New Guilbeau Road and SH 151 is approximately 3.5 miles.

Signalized at-grade T-intersections exist at New Guilbeau Road and at Shaenfield Road. Non-signalized at-grade intersections exist on the Loop 1604 northbound lanes at Bowens Crossing, and on the Loop 1604 southbound lanes at Leslie Road. Leslie Road also parallels the southbound lanes of Loop 1604 within the project ROW for approximately 1.8 miles, functioning as a discontinuous parallel access road having three non-signalized at-grade T-intersections with the southbound lanes of Loop 1604. Frontage roads in both directions of Loop 1604 exist for a length of about 1.5 miles to manage access through existing interchanges with Culebra Road and with SH 151. Loop 1604 main lanes are elevated over Culebra Road and Culebra Creek, forming a diamond interchange with signalized at-grade intersections existing between the frontage roads and Culebra Road. At SH 151, the northbound frontage road of Loop 1604 forms ramps connecting with SH 151 to the east, and the southbound frontage road of Loop 1604 has an existing non-signalized T-intersection with Alamo Ranch Parkway to the west. The Loop 1604 main lanes in both directions connect with SH 151 eastbound via an existing at-grade signalized intersection.

NEED AND PURPOSE FOR THE PROPOSED PROJECT

The needs or problems to be addressed for the proposed project are decreased mobility and operational efficiency. This section of Loop 1604 has seen a dramatic increase in residential and commercial development over the past 10 years. The increase in residential homes has spurred retail development as well as the recent construction of several public schools to service this area of San Antonio. Traffic volumes have surpassed the capacity of this section of Loop 1604, causing unabated congestion. The purpose of the project is to enhance mobility and operational efficiency in the near-term by implementing a “Super Street� configuration to help reduce peak hour congestion and facilitate congestion management. Long-term solutions to address capacity needs along the Loop 1604 corridor are being studied in a separate environmental document. The operating level of an intersection or roadway can be described using the term Level of Service (LOS). LOS is a qualitative description of operation based on delay and maneuverability. Much like a student's report card, LOS is represented by the letters "A" through "F", with "A" generally representing the most favorable driving conditions and "F" representing the least favorable or most congested. Table 1 below shows the existing and proposed level of service for the mainlanes of Loop 1604 while Table 2 below shows the existing and projected level of service for the intersections. As shown in these tables the existing level of service is LOS F for northbound traffic from New Guilbeau to Braun as well as for southbound traffic from New Guilbeau to Shaenfield Rd. With the proposed improvements, the LOS for these segments is improved to LOS B and A, respectively. The intersections also show improvement, increasing from LOS F and D to LOS C and B.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ACTION

A. ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (ARMA), in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Bexar County, is proposing to implement a “Super Street” configuration and associated operational improvements within the proposed project limits on Loop 1604. The ARMA is a local transportation authority created by the Texas Transportation Commission and the Bexar Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

County Commissioners Court in December 2003 that can build, operate, and maintain toll and non-toll roads along with other transportation projects under all of the existing federal and state regulations and interagency agreements in place through TxDOT. The proposed project limits are on Loop 1604 from New Guilbeau Road to SH 151. Transition areas of approximately 1,600 feet north of New Guilbeau Road and 1,400 feet south of SH 151 are needed for project implementation. The “Super Street” intersection is a type of intersection in which cross-street traffic is prohibited from going straight through or left at a divided highway intersection. Cross-street traffic must turn right, but can then access a U-turn to proceed in the desired direction (see Exhibit 3: “Super Street” Layout). Generally, the proposed project would reconfigure the intersection of Loop 1604 and Shaenfield Road into a “Super Street” configuration, implement similar operational improvements at the intersection of Loop 1604 and New Guilbeau Road, and implement a ramp reversal on the southbound lanes of Loop 1604 at SH 151. The through-lanes proposed on Loop 1604 would generally match the existing configuration. The operational improvements proposed at New Guilbeau Road would implement a variation of the “Super Street” to accommodate the existing street to the east side of Loop 1604, without provision for future extension of New Guilbeau Road to the west. The proposed configuration, called a Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT) would widen existing Loop 1604 pavement toward the median for a distance of 1,600 feet north of New Guilbeau Road, and toward the outside for a distance of 700 feet south of New Guilbeau Road. Pavement widening would increase the existing 38-ft roadway to a maximum of 66-ft of pavement to accommodate three 12-ft through-lanes and two 12-ft U-turn lanes, 2-ft inside shoulders, and 4-ft outside shoulders. The remaining variable width median would be grassy with slopes graded to a ditch along the inside northbound lane. The existing ditch along the inside southbound lane would be unaffected. An additional localized area of widening would be proposed for 310-ft along the north side of New Guilbeau Road to accommodate three right-turn-only lanes. Also, 28-ft of proposed pavement would provide a turnaround for traffic coming from New Guilbeau road to proceed south on Loop 1604. The turnaround would be configured with two 12-ft lanes and 2-ft shoulders and would be about 300-ft in length within the existing median of Loop 1604. A narrow strip of pavement approximately 4-ft wide for a distance of approximately 200-ft would be constructed along the outside of the northbound lanes near the New Guilbeau turnaround to maintain a 4-ft outside shoulder. Concrete median islands and new traffic signal locations are also proposed at the New Guilbeau Road intersection. The overall length of the proposed improvements along Loop 1604 at New Guilbeau Road would be up to 2,300 feet, or 0.4 miles within the project limits. For the “Super Street” intersection at Shaenfield Road, the existing pavement for both directions of travel would be widened for a distance of 2,100 feet to the north and 2,900 feet to the south. Pavement widening would increase the Loop 1604 approaches to the intersection from the existing 38-ft roadway to a maximum of 76-ft of pavement to accommodate three 12-ft through-lanes, two 12-ft left-turn lanes, and a 12-ft dedicated right turn lane. The Loop 1604 pavement downstream from the intersection would be increased from the existing 38-ft roadway to a maximum of 66-ft of pavement to accommodate three 12-ft through-lanes, two 12-ft U-turn lanes, 2-ft inside shoulders, and 4-ft outside shoulders. The remaining 20.5 feet of median would be grassy with slopes graded to a center ditch. Additional localized areas of widening toward the outside of Loop 1604 would accommodate large vehicles at the U-turns. These localized areas of pavement widening are termed “loons” and are proposed at each end of the “Super Street” intersection at Shaenfield Road. The loons would vary in size up to a maximum of 25-ft of pavement widening over a maximum length of 85 feet. Also, to enhance operation of the Loop Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

1604 “Super Street” intersection with Shaenfield Road, an additional 6-ft widening to the outside is proposed in both directions of Loop 1604 for up to 2,000-ft beyond the loons. This additional pavement widening would increase the existing 38-ft roadway to 44-ft of pavement to accommodate three 12-ft lanes with 4-ft shoulders in both directions. Concrete median islands and new traffic signal locations are also proposed at the Shaenfield Road intersection. The overall length of the proposed improvements along Loop 1604 at Shaenfield Road would be up to 6,000 feet, or 1.1 miles within the project limits. Since Shaenfield Road exists only on the west side of Loop 1604, the project would include a stub-out for a future extension of Shaenfield Road to the east, ending approximately 20-ft beyond the outside northbound lane within the existing ROW. The proposed ramp reversal for the southbound lanes of Loop 1604 at SH 151 would involve the removal of the existing southbound entrance ramp to Loop 1604 from Culebra Road, and construction of a proposed southbound exit ramp from Loop 1604 to Alamo Ranch Parkway and SH 151. Implementation of the proposed ramping would also include widening the existing southbound frontage road between the proposed exit ramp and SH 151 to provide a maximum of 57-ft of pavement to accommodate four 11-ft lanes with 1-ft shoulders, and a 11-ft right turn lane to Alamo Ranch Parkway. Drainage improvements would include extending an existing culvert located immediately north of Alamo Ranch Parkway, constructing new cross culverts at the Alamo Ranch Parkway intersection, as well 1,200 ft of storm sewer system along the southbound frontage road. The overall length of the proposed improvements along Loop 1604 at SH 151 would be up to 5,500 feet, or 1.0 mile within the project limits. See Exhibit 4: Proposed Typical Sections and Exhibit 5: Project Layout. The projected Average Daily Traffic (ADT) for the Loop 1604 Super Street project is 74,555. B. RIGHT-OF-WAY The proposed improvements would not require any new ROW acquisition or easements. No displacements of residences or businesses would result. The proposed project would preserve business access and no driveway changes are anticipated. C. BICYCLES AND PEDESTRIANS Per 23USC 109(m) “Protection of Nonmotorized Transportation Traffic”, The Secretary shall not approve any project or take any regulatory action under this title that will result in the severance of an existing major route or have significant adverse impact on the safety for nonmotorized transportation traffic and light motorcycles, unless such project or regulatory action provides for a reasonable alternate route or such a route exists. Existing pedestrian facilities in the vicinity of proposed project improvements include cross walks at the intersection of Loop 1604 and New Guilbeau Road, and a discontinuous sidewalk along the southbound frontage road at Alamo Ranch Parkway. Proposed improvements include concrete islands with pedestrian curb ramps, pavement markings, and signals to provide for pedestrian movements crossing both New Guilbeau Road and Shaenfield Road. The pedestrian crosswalk across Loop 1604 at New Guilbeau Road as well as the southbound Loop 1604 bus stop at this location would be eliminated; however, pedestrian movements crossing Loop 1604 would be supported by the addition of curb ramps, pavement markings, and signals at Shaenfield Road (located approximately one mile south of the Loop 1604 intersection with New Guilbeau Road) and by existing pedestrian accommodations at Braun Road (located approximately ½ mile north of the Loop 1604 intersection with New Guilbeau Road). The existing pedestrian crossing at New Guilbeau Road is not considered as serving a major route based on VIA Metropolitan Transit ridership data and the lack of other pedestrian destinations on the west side Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

of Loop 1604. According to VIA, bus boarding for the southbound direction at New Guilbeau Road averages less than one boarding per day. Likewise, boarding for the northbound direction at Bowens Crossing (located immediately south of New Guilbeau Road) also averages less than one boarding per day. For the few pedestrian travelers affected, the Loop 1604 southbound bus stop at New Guilbeau Road does have an existing reasonable alternative. Travelers may utilize the southbound bus stop at Braun Road instead of the existing stop at New Guilbeau Road. The distance from the New Guilbeau Road bus stop to the Braun Road southbound bus stop is approximately ½ mile. Depending on the origin of trips by bus, alternate routes could also include other bus routes located in the vicinity of New Guilbeau Road and Loop 1604. The discontinuous sidewalk along the southbound frontage road would not be modified by the proposed improvements. Provisions for bicycles were also considered during development of the proposed project. From the local perspective, the San Antonio-Bexar County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is continuously seeking input from standing committees known as the Bicycle Mobility Advisory Committee and the Pedestrian Mobility Advisory Committee. The San Antonio-Bexar County Bicycle Master Plan was approved by the San Antonio City Council on April 21, 2005 and Bexar County Commissioners Court by resolution on July 12, 2005. Also, the San Antonio-Bexar County MPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) 2035 includes planning for bicycle and pedestrian improvements. The Bicycle Master Plan was designed to serve as the primary document considered in planning for bicycle facilities in the region while the MTP is the San Antonio-Bexar County’s financially constrained plan for regional transportation improvements. Neither the Bicycle Master Plan nor the MTP 2035 (either funded or unfunded bicycle or pedestrian improvements) are identified within the Loop 1604 proposed project corridor. While local bicycle plans do not encourage travel on Loop 1604 due to safety concerns, wide outer frontage road lanes would provide some space for use by cyclists. The existing shoulder condition ranges from no shoulders to 2’ shoulders adjacent to 10’ turn lanes. The proposed project would provide consistent outside shoulders throughout the project limits (except at Bowens Crossing in the northbound direction where the project is not proposing any changes to the existing conditions), from between 4’ and 10’ adjacent to 12’ through-lanes and 2’ adjacent to 11’ or 12’ turning/auxiliary lanes. These proposed shoulder and lane widths effectively improve conditions for bicyclists. Safe passages for bicycle and pedestrian facilities are currently under consideration under a separate environmental study for the Loop 1604 corridor. D. ALTERNATIVES Two alternatives were reviewed for satisfying the need and purpose of the proposed improvements to Loop 1604. These include the Build Alternative and the No Build Alternative. The No Build Alternative is required for review as a basis of comparison for all other alternatives. No Build The No Build Alternative would leave the Loop 1604 corridor in its current condition. The No Build would not improve safety or mobility on Loop 1604. Under the No Build Alternative, the safety and mobility benefits of the Super Street would not be realized. As traffic volumes in the study area continue to increase, safety and mobility would decline. For these reasons, it was determined that the Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

6

Environmental Document September 2010


No Build Alternative would not meet the Need and Purpose of the proposed project. Further, it is not consistent with the MPO Transportation Improvement Program. Build Alternative The Build Alternative would implement the Super Street improvements as discussed previously. The Build Alternative would best fulfill the Need and Purpose of the proposed project. To avoid and minimize impacts to potential endangered species habitat and mature vegetation, the roadway at the existing southbound frontage road between the proposed exit ramp and SH 151 (discussed in A. Roadway Construction) was optimized specifically by decreasing the footprint of proposed pavement from 12-ft travel lanes to 11-ft travel lanes and from 2-ft shoulders to 1-ft shoulders and implementing a storm sewer system. These adjustments allowed for a decrease in impacts to potential Golden-cheeked Warbler habitat from 2.07 acres to 1.19 acres. E. UTILITY CONSTRUCTION Utility adjustments are anticipated to implement the proposed project. Specifically, adjustments may be needed for AT&T as well as several water and gas lines owned by CPS Energy, San Antonio Water System, and Grey Forest Utilities. Coordination with affected utility providers is ongoing and would be completed prior to project construction. F. PROJECT FUNDING On May 17, 2010, the San Antonio-Bexar County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) approved the funding of the Loop 1604 “Super Street” with funds distributed from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), the Surface Transportation Program – Metropolitan Mobility (STP-MM) “Category 7” funding, and local funding from the Advanced Transportation District. The project construction cost is approximately $6,370,000. The proposed project letting date is November 2010 with an estimated time of completion of August 2011.

V. POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS A.

AIR

a. Transportation Plan Consistency After the May 17, 2010 amendments, the proposed project is included in and consistent with the San Antonio-Bexar County financially constrained 2030 MTP and 2008-2011 / 2011-2014 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) (Appendix B). The proposed project letting date is November 2010. b. National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) This project is located in Bexar County which is currently classified as being in attainment status of the NAAQS; therefore, transportation conformity does not apply. The San Antonio area (Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe and Wilson Counties) entered into an Early-Action Compact agreement with EPA in 2004. As part of the agreement, proactive efforts were implemented to improve air quality and the San Antonio area was designated as a deferred nonattainment area for ozone based on the 1997 ozone NAAQS of 0.080 ppm. EPA designated the San Antonio area as being in attainment on April 2, 2008. The federal ozone standard was last set in 2008 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at 75 parts per billion (ppb). The standard was created to protect human health and the environment. However, on January 6, 2010, the EPA proposed lowering the threshold for the acceptable amount of Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

7

Environmental Document September 2010


ground-level ozone from its 2008 standard of 75 ppb to a level within the range of 60 and 70 ppb. Following a reconsideration of the over 1,700 scientific studies, the recommendation of the independent Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, and the public comments that led to its decision to lower the threshold in 2008, the EPA said it had determined that the 2008 adjustment to the ozone threshold had not gone far enough to protect human health and the environment. The EPA accepted written public input through March 22, 2010 on exactly where, within the 60 to 70 ppb range, the threshold should be set. It held three public hearings on the proposal, one of which was in Houston on February 2, 2010. The EPA expects to announce its final decision regarding the clean air standard threshold in August 2010. It expects that the new standard designations of “attainment” or “nonattainment” will be made by August 2011. The proposed project would not violate any implementation plan for the county. This project is not adding single occupancy vehicle (SOV) capacity to an existing facility; therefore a CMP/CMS analysis is not required. c. Carbon Monoxide (CO) Traffic Air Quality Analysis (TAQA) Generally, operational improvements are considered exempt from a TAQA because they are intended to enhance traffic safety and improve traffic flow. The proposed action would not add capacity to an existing facility. Current and future emissions should continue to follow existing trends not being affected by this project. Due to the nature of this project, further carbon monoxide analysis was not deemed necessary. d. Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT’s) The purpose of this project is to improve operational efficiency. This project would not result in any meaningful changes in traffic volumes, vehicle mix, location of existing roadways, or any other factor that would cause a substantial increase in emissions impacts relative to the existing conditions. As such, TxDOT and FHWA have determined that this project would generate minimal air quality impacts for Clean Air Act criteria pollutants and has not been linked with any special Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT) concerns. Consequently, this project is exempt from analysis for MSATs. Moreover, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for vehicle engines and fuels will cause overall MSATs to decline significantly over the next 20 years. Even after accounting for a projected 64% increase in vehicle miles traveled (VMT), FHWA predicts MSATs will decline in the range of 57 to 87% from a baseline year of 2000 to 2020 based on the current vehicle and fuel regulations in effect. These reductions will reduce the background level of MSATs. e. Construction Emissions During the construction phase of this project there can be temporary increases in air pollutant emissions from construction activities, equipment, and related vehicles. The primary construction related emissions are particulate matter (fugitive dust) from site preparation and construction and non-road MSAT’s from construction equipment and vehicles. The primary MSAT emission related to construction is diesel particulate matter from diesel powered construction equipment and vehicles. These emissions are temporary in nature (only occurring during actual construction) and it is not reasonably possible to estimate impacts from these emissions due to limitations of the existing models. However, the potential impacts of particulate matter emissions will be minimized by using fugitive dust control measures such as covering or treating disturbed areas with dust suppression techniques, sprinkling, covering loaded trucks, and other dust abatement controls, as appropriate. The MSAT Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

8

Environmental Document September 2010


emissions will be minimized by the small scale of the project. However, considering the temporary and transient nature of construction related emissions as well as the mitigation actions to be utilized, it is not anticipated that emissions from construction of this project would have any significant impact on air quality in the area. B. NOISE This project is not on new location, does not substantially alter either the horizontal or vertical alignment, and does not increase the number of through-traffic lanes; therefore, a traffic noise analysis is not required by the Federal Highway Administration Regulation 23 CFR 772 or TxDOT’s 1996 Guidelines for Analysis and Abatement of Highway Traffic Noise. C.

WATER RESOURCES

a. Floodplains Two areas within the proposed project limits are located within a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designated 100-year floodplain; however, no work would occur in the floodplain (see Exhibit 6: USGS/FEMA). Construction of the proposed project would not violate applicable floodplain regulations and ordinances. The proposed project would not result in the placement of fill within a designated floodplain or interrupt or terminate a transportation facility needed for emergency vehicles or community evacuation routes. The roadway would permit the conveyance of the 100-year flood, inundation of the roadway being acceptable without causing significant damage to the roadway, stream, or other property. Coordination with the local Floodplain Administrator would not be required. Therefore, floodplain impacts resulting from the proposed actions would not be considered significant according to 23 CFR 650. b. Section 303 - Threatened and Impaired Waters Runoff from this project would not discharge directly into Section 303 (d) listed threatened or impaired water, or into a stream within 5 miles upstream of Section 303 (d) listed or impaired water. The 2008 303 (d) list was utilized in this assessment. c. Edwards Aquifer This project is not located within the Edwards Aquifer Contributing or Recharge Zones; therefore, the Edwards Aquifer rules do not apply. d. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jurisdictional Waters The project was surveyed for waters of the U.S., including wetlands. No wetlands were identified during field surveys within the proposed project area. The streams within the project area are part of the Upper Leon Creek Watershed and the Culebra Creek Watershed and are intermittent and ephemeral waters. Waters of the U.S. identified within the project study area are surface waters flowing into tributaries to Culebra Creek, Culebra Creek, Helotes Creek, and tributaries to Helotes Creek (see Exhibit 7). The project would not result in the placement of temporary or permanent dredge or fill material into potentially jurisdictional waters of the U.S., including wetland or other special aquatic sites; therefore, a Section 404 permit would not be required. Field investigations and the review of USGS and aerial maps Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

9

Environmental Document September 2010


revealed the presence of seven crossings. Five of the seven crossings associated with the abovereferenced creeks and tributaries exhibited jurisdictional qualities (ordinary high water mark (OHWM). No work; however, would be conducted in any of these areas. Reports documenting the location of these crossings, their jurisdictional features, as well photo documentation was prepared and will be maintained in project files. Executive Order 11990 on wetlands does not apply because no wetlands were identified or will be impacted. This project does not involve work in or over a navigable water of the U.S.; therefore, Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act does not apply. e. Section 401 - Water Quality Certification The proposed project would not require a USACE Section 404 Permit; therefore, Section 401 Certification would not be required. f. Section 402 – Construction General Permit (CGP) This project would include five or more acres of earth disturbance. TxDOT and ARMA would comply with TCEQ’s Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Construction General Permit (CGP). A Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SW3P) would be implemented, and a construction site notice would be posted on the construction site. A Notice of Intent (NOI) would be required. g. Section 402 - Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) The proposed project is located within the boundaries of the Phase I City of San Antonio Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) System, and would comply with the applicable MS4 requirements. D. VEGETATION According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s (TPWD) map, Natural Regions of Texas, the proposed project lies within the Edwards Plateau Ecological Region. As required in the 1998 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between TxDOT and the TPWD, the vegetation in the project area was characterized using The Vegetation Types of Texas (TPWD, 1984). According to this map the project is located within vegetation type Mesquite-Live Oak-Bluewood Parks and Crops (See Exhibit 8: Vegetation Types of Texas). Commonly associated plants of the Mesquite-Live Oak-Bluewood Parks vegetation type identified within the project area include Ashe juniper (Juniperus ashei), honey mesquite (Prosopsis glandulosa), netleaf hackberry (Celtis reticulata), live oak (Quercus virginiana), Texas pricklypear (Opuntia lindheimeri), greenbriar (Smilax bona-nox), Texas wintergrass (Stipa leucotricha), and little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium). Distribution of this vegetation type is mainly on level to gently rolling uplands and ridge tops of the Edwards Plateau. Limited portions of the project study area are undeveloped. These portions include sections north of Loop 1604 at the northern project limits and south of Loop 1604 at the southeastern corner with SH 151. Representative photos of these areas are found in Appendix A: Project Photos. The project is located within the corporate city limits of San Antonio. The project limits for analysis of direct impacts to vegetation resources consists of existing ROW and easements. The surrounding project study area is consistent with the TPWD description in the non-developed areas located near the southern project limits at SH 151. Overall, the project study area is trending to urbanized commercial and residential development. Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

a. Outside ROW A field survey of the project area along Loop 1604 indicates an ongoing conversion from native vegetation, live oak and Ashe juniper, towards urban development. A strong urbanization trend is evident with commercial and master planned residential development. Limited areas of natural vegetation discussed above, are representative of the Edwards Plateau. b. Fenceline Many of the fence-lines are well-maintained, especially in areas of recent commercial and residential development. In areas along fencelines where vegetation was found, a few species dominated. Woody species are dominated by netleaf hackberry, sugarberry (Celtis laevigata), live oak, Ashe juniper, honey mesquite, Baccharis (Baccharis texana), and huisache (Acacia smallii) but are found only as scattered intervals or are associated with dense stand of vegetation located adjacent to the ROW. These species range up to 12� in diameter at breast height (dbh) and 30’ in height. Herbaceous ground cover near the fence lines was typically dominated by bluegrass (Bothriochloa spp.), broomweed (Amphiachyris dracunculoides), little bluestem, prickly pear, dewberry (Rubus riograndis), and maintained turf grasses. c. Existing ROW The existing ROW is 350 feet (usual) throughout the project limits, widening to over 500 feet at Culebra Road and at SH 151. The ROW within the center median and approximately 30 feet (usual) outside the Loop 1604 mainlanes (in both directions) is cleared, and native grasses and forbs are routinely maintained. One exception to these maintained areas exist within the ROW at the southern project limits. The existing ROW located between the mainlanes of Loop 1604 and the access road adjacent to Alamo Ranch Parkway is dense, mature vegetation. Within this vegetated area, live oak and hackberry are the dominant tree species with lesser amounts of huisache and mesquite. Tree heights range from 8 feet to 40 feet, with the majority being approximately 10 to 14 feet. Diameter at breast height (dbh) ranges from 2 to 18 inches with the majority being approximately 8 to 10 inches. Roosevelt weed (Baccharis neglecta), live oak sapling and Ashe juniper trees are the dominant shrub layer species, with agarita, flame-leaf sumac, twistleaf yucca (Yucca rupicola) and Texas prickly pear in lesser amounts. Dominant herbaceous species include King Ranch bluestem (Bothriochloa ischaemum var. songarica), Silver bluestem (Bothriochloa saccharoides), bermudagrass, (Cynodon dactylon), and Johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense). One large mature live oak tree with a 64 inch dbh and over 50 feet in height is located between Leslie Road and the southbound mainlanes of Loop 1604 west of Shaenfield Road (see Photo 17 in Appendix A). d. New ROW and New Easements No new ROW or easements would be required for the proposed project. e. Unusual Vegetation and Special Habitat Features Unusual vegetation and special habitat features include the large mature oak mentioned previously and riparian areas associated with major bridge crossings at Culebra Creek and Helotes Creek. Tree species noted within these areas include black willow (Salix nigra), ash (Fraxinus sp.), hackberry, and live oak within the existing ROW. These species range in trunk diameter to 14 inches and in height to approximately 40 feet. Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

f. Vegetation Impacts The proposed project would include widening the existing pavement primarily within the center median, immediately adjacent to the mainlanes, and along the southbound frontage road approaching SH 151. Grading is also proposed ensure effective movement of runoff. Approximately 8.15 acres of vegetation, predominately grasses, of routinely maintained ROW would be impacted. The exception would be the removal of approximately 1.19 acres of vegetation located at Alamo Ranch Parkway which would include the removal of mature trees ranging up to 12” dbh and 30’ in height (see Exhibit 9). The removal of this mature vegetation is needed to accommodate the improvements proposed along the southbound frontage road, which include pavement widening, storm sewer system, extending an existing culvert located immediately north of Alamo Ranch Parkway, and constructing new cross culverts at the Alamo Ranch Parkway intersection. TxDOT coordinated with TPWD for the removal of mature woody vegetation. See Appendix C: Correspondence. In accordance with Provision (4) (A) (ii) of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between TxDOT and TPWD, habitats given consideration for non-regulatory mitigation during project planning include the following: • • • • •

habitat for federal candidate species (impacted by the project) if mitigation would assist in the prevention of the listing of the species, rare vegetation series (S1, S2, or S3) that also locally provide habitat for a state-listed species, all vegetation communities listed as S1 or S2, regardless of whether or not the series in question provide habitat for state-listed species, bottomland hardwoods, native prairies, and riparian sites, and any other habitat feature considered locally important that the TxDOT District chooses to consider.

Neither the large mature live oak nor any riparian vegetation would be impacted by the proposed project. No work would be conducted in riparian areas associated with the bridges at Culebra Creek and Helotes Creek. The existing vegetation where improvements are proposed does not meet the above criteria for non-regulatory mitigation. The project area does not include critical habitat for any federal candidate species, rare vegetation series, bottomland hardwoods, or native prairies. Based upon the absence of impacts to the five habitats to be considered for mitigation described in the MOA and the minimal impacts associated with this project, compensatory mitigation would not be proposed. g. Invasive Species and Beneficial Landscaping No landscaping would be a part of the proposed project. Disturbed areas would be revegetated according to TxDOT’s standard practices for urban areas, which to the extent practical, is in compliance with Executive Order 13112 on Invasive Species and the Executive Memorandum on Beneficial Landscaping. E. FISH AND WILDLIFE COORDINATION ACT Since no USACE permit is required for implementation of the proposed project, no coordination under the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act is required. The ARMA conducted informal consultation with the USFWS on March 19, 2010 regarding the design and footprint of the proposed project and studies described in F. Threatened & Endangered Species.

F. THREATENED & ENDANGERED SPECIES Table 3 summarizes species which are listed as endangered or threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) or the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), and their federal and state status and project effect. Each of these species is considered by these agencies as having the potential to occur in Bexar County. A consultant biologist performed a search of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Natural Diversity Database (TxNDD) dated March 4, 2010 for possible Element Occurrence Records (EOR) within a twomile radius of the proposed project limits. The USFWS species by county report (accessed March 15, 2010) as well as the TPWD Annotated County Lists of Rare Species last revised July 19, 2010 was also searched. Two records, EOID 7786 and Critical Habitat Unit (CHU) 16 are located within two miles of the project limits and are detailed in Table 4. No other federal/state-listed threatened or endangered species or any other rare species or vegetation types were identified within two miles of the project limits. Data from the NDD do not provide a definitive statement as to the presence, absence, or condition of special species, natural communities, or other significant features within the study area. Table 3 provides pertinent data on habitat and effect to federal and state-listed species or critical habitat.

Species Habitat Description During breeding season, nests on high plains or shortgrass prairie, on ground in shallow depression. During non-breeding season, frequents shortgrass plains and bare, dirt (plowed) fields; primarily insectivorous. Both subspecies (Arctic and American) migrate across the state from more northern breeding areas in US and Canada to winter along coast and farther south. Subspecies (F. p. anatum/American Peregrine) is also a resident breeder in west Texas; the two subspecies’ listing statuses differ, thus the species level shows this dual listing status because the subspecies are not easily distinguishable at a distance. Reference is generally made only to the species level. Inhabits open grasslands, especially prairie, plains, and savanna; sometimes in open areas such as vacant lots near human habitation or airports; nests and roosts in abandoned burrows The ibis prefers freshwater marshes, sloughs, and irrigated rice fields, but will attend brackish and saltwater habitats; nests in marshes, in low trees, on the ground in bulrushes or reeds, or on floating mats A potential migrant of the plains areas throughout most of the state and coast. Commonly winters in coastal marshes of Aransas, Calhoun, and Refugio Counties. Forages in prairie ponds, flooded pastures or fields, ditches, and other shallow standing water, including salt-water; usually roosts communally in tall snags, sometimes in association with other wading birds (i.e. active heronries); breeds in Mexico and birds move into Gulf States in search of mud flats and other wetlands, even those associated with forested areas; formerly nested in Texas, but no breeding records since 1960 This hawk prefers arid open country, including open deciduous or pine-oak woodland, mesa or mountain county, often near watercourses, and wooded canyons and tree-lined rivers along middle-slopes of desert mountains; nests in various habitats and sites, ranging from small trees in lower desert, giant cottonwoods in riparian areas, to mature conifers in high mountain regions

The ARMA conducted informal consultation with the USFWS for the proposed project under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) on March 19, 2010. ARMA, FHWA, USFWS, and project biologists discussed the design and footprint of the proposed project as well as the status of ongoing studies for the endangered birds and the karst invertebrates. Habitat Assessment for Endangered Birds A habitat assessment for the endangered Black-capped Vireo (Vireo atricapilla) and Golden-cheeked Warbler (Dendroica chrysoparia) was performed by qualified biologists in March of 2009. A small portion of potential habitat for the Black-capped Vireo was identified west of the proposed project area outside of the existing ROW but within a 300-foot buffer from the ROW line (Exhibit 10). Potential habitat for the Golden-cheeked Warbler was identified within existing ROW and within the 300-foot buffer (Exhibit 10). The Golden-cheeked Warbler habitat can be described as a vegetation association that “may be used by Golden-cheeked Warblers” as per recent survey guidance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Two full years of presence/absence surveys for each species was conducted in these areas in 2009 and 2010. As described in the technical letter report Habitat Assessments and Presence/Absence Surveys for the Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo within the Study Area of the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority and Texas Department of Transportation’s Proposed Improvements to Loop 1604 from New Guilbeau Road to SH 151, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas (CSJ: 2452-01-050) (Blanton & Associates, 2010), neither bird has been observed in or adjacent to the project limits (i.e. within the 300-foot buffer) during these surveys. Impacts to Endangered Birds Proposed improvements would not impact potential Black-capped Vireo habitat and no Black-capped Vireos have been observed in the project area in two years of surveys. Therefore, the project may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect, the Black-capped Vireo. The proposed improvements would impact 1.19 acres of potential Golden-cheeked Warbler habitat within the ROW (Exhibit 9). However, all clearing of potential habitat would take place outside of the nesting season for the Golden-cheeked Warbler (between September 2nd and February 28th). In addition, a meeting with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) was conducted on March 19, 2010. The design and footprint of the project was discussed. USFWS felt that the potential Golden-cheek Warbler habitat identified within the ROW may be too fragmented to support a nesting territory. Noise during construction and moving the alignment closer to vegetated areas could result in an indirect effect; however, in light of USFWS assessment of potential habitat, the fact that no birds have been encountered to date, and because the clearing of this vegetation would take place outside of the nesting season, the project may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect the Golden-cheeked Warbler. TxDOT notified USFWS of the surveys and study findings. See Appendix C for the USFWS consultation letter.

Habitat Assessment for Endangered Karst Invertebrates In addition to the Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo, ARMA also discussed the nine karst invertebrates with USFWS at the March 19, 2010 meeting. The nine karst endangered species (listed in Table 3) include one harvestman; Texella cokendolpheri (Cokendolpher Cave Harvestman); five spiders; Cicurina baronia (Robber Baron Cave Meshweaver), Neoleptoneta microps (Government Canyon Bat Cave Spider), Cicurina venii (Bracken Bat Cave Meshweaver), Cicurina madla (Madlas Cave Meshweaver), and Cicurina vespera (Government Canyon Bat Cave Meshweaver) and three beetles: Rhadine exilis (beetle, no common name), Rhadine infernalis (beetle, no common name), and Batrisodes venyivi (Helotes mold beetle). These nine karst species were listed as endangered in 2000 (65 FR 81419 – 81433). Designated critical habitat was delineated for seven of the nine species in 2003 (68 FR 17155 – 17231). Critical habitat has not been designated for the Government Canyon Bat Cave Meshweaver or for the Government Canyon Bat Cave Spider as these species and their habitats are protected by their location within the Government Canyon State Natural Area. Lands designated as critical habitat occur in 22 separate units in Bexar County, with a total area of approximately 1,063 acres. The general locations of critical habitat units (CHU) are depicted in Map 1 (USFWS 2003). CHU 16 is the closest unit to the proposed project, approximately 1.5 miles.

CHU 16 is approximately 40 acres in size, contains one cave, Caracol Creek Coon Cave, occupied by R. infernalis. According to the Federal Register, Vol. 68, No. 67, Tuesday, April 8, 2003, page 17179, “the surface of this unit [CHU] consists of several large privately-owned, undeveloped tracts. Loop 1604, a major roadway, goes through the eastern part of the unit and lies above the eastern portion of the subsurface drainage area associated with the cave.â€? Per the USFWS Section 10(a) (1) (A) Karst Invertebrate Survey Requirements, an initial karst feature survey was conducted by a qualified individual, as defined by the TCEQ with demonstrated experience in karst geology. Based on informal consultation, the area of potential effect (APE) for the nine karst invertebrates was defined by the USFWS as 500 feet from the existing ROW in areas identified as Zone 1 and 2 and varied distances ranging up to 500 feet from the existing ROW in areas identified as Zone 3 decided on a case by case basis by karst experts (under the guidance of USFWS). Ultimately, for consistency, karst experts evaluated each karst zone, 1, 2, and 3, including 500 feet from the existing ROW when permission to access the property was granted. According to Karst Zone maps for the San Antonio area, the proposed project is located within Karst Zones 2 and 3 (See Exhibit 11: Karst Zones). Karst Zone 2 includes areas having a high probability of containing suitable habitat for endangered karst species. Karst Zone 3 is defined as areas that probably do not contain endangered karst invertebrate species. Impacts to Endangered Karst Invertebrates Karst invertebrate habitat surveys and background research detailed in the Karst Invertebrate Technical Report (Zara Environmental LLC, 2010) identified 20 potential karst features in the study area. Six were not available for excavation, one no longer exists, and thirteen of those could be accessed and were evaluated using standard methods. Twelve of those thirteen warranted excavation, and of those, two warranted biological surveys. One of those two features, 1604-D55, is a karst feature with no karst invertebrate habitat. The other feature, 1604-F019, was excavated to a cave that was named Clandestine Cupola Cave and found to have six cave adapted species. One of the cave adapted species, a Neoleptoneta spider, was verified by a taxonomist to not be the federally listed Neoleptoneta microps, but instead to be an undescribed species known from three other localities. Another potentially listed species discovered was a blind Cicurina spider. All of the collecting efforts yielded only two specimens of this spider, and they could not be identified using standard morphological techniques because the individuals were immature, therefore lacking the characteristics used to differentiate species. To ascertain the definitive identity of this species, genetic sequencing was performed by Centro de Investigaciones BiolĂłgicas del Noroeste, S.C. Laboratory studies concluded that the Cicurina recovered from Clandestine Cupola Cave is Cicurina loftini, a non-listed species. As detailed in Appendix C of the aforementioned Karst Invertebrate Technical Report, karst experts evaluated whether planned development of the Loop 1604 Superstreet would impact the primary constituent elements of the ecosystem at the Clandestine Cupola Cave (1604-F019). The evaluation concluded that there is no significant surface drainage basin to this cave entrance because it is located near the top of a hill. The subsurface drainage basin lies primarily to the east, and is less than 2.81 acres. The cave cricket foraging area, typically used in cave condition assessments, is irrelevant to this cave because no Ceuthophilus secretus cave crickets were found during biological surveys. The surface plant and animal community is degraded because the cave entrance is located in a narrow median between a highway access road and a parking lot access road. These data suggest that the proposed action would not affect the primary constituent elements of this cave ecosystem. Based on these conclusions, potential impacts to federally-listed species are insignificant and discountable. Therefore, the proposed Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

project may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect Cicurina venii. TxDOT notified USFWS of the survey and study findings. See Appendix C for the USFWS consultation letter. A USFWS permitted biologist reviewed the construction plans to determine if any activities (e.g. regrading, stock piling material, parking vehicles, refueling vehicles, vegetation destruction) within potential cricket foraging area or surface/subsurface drainage basins could impact the Clandestine Cupola Cave and its drainage area. Work for the proposed project would not impact this cave or its drainage area. In an effort to avoid impacts to the cave’s primary constituent elements, TxDOT will install temporary fencing and implement a “no mow” zone surrounding the cave entrance. Permanent and long-term protection measures will be considered under a separate environmental study for the Loop 1604 corridor. Potentially, karst features that have suitable habitat or that shelter endangered invertebrate karst species could be revealed during construction, and therefore result in a direct effect. To address and mitigate for this potential, work would cease in the immediate area if a karst feature is encountered. An individual possessing a Section 10 (a)(1)(A) permit would be used to assess the feature. If a federally protected species is documented, formal consultation with the USFWS would be initiated. G. MIGRATORY BIRD TREATY ACT The terms of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) of 1918 apply to the proposed project. The MBTA prohibits all negative impacts to birds, young, eggs, or occupied nests in part or whole for all birds on the migratory birds list, except as authorized by federal permit. Mature trees, cross-drainage culverts, and bridges over Helotes Creek and Culebra Creek exist within the project limits. In the event that migratory birds are encountered on-site during project construction, every effort would be made to avoid adverse impacts to protected birds, active nests, eggs, and/or young. The contractor would be prepared to prevent migratory birds from building nests between February 15 and October 1. H. FARMLAND PROTECTION POLICY ACT No agricultural areas exist within the proposed project limits. As there is no additional required ROW, this project is exempt from the requirements of the Farmland Protection Policy Act (FPPA) and requires no coordination with the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). I. CULTURAL RESOURCES Cultural resources are structures, buildings, archeological sites, districts (a collection of related structures buildings, and/or archeological sites), cemeteries and objects. Both federal and state laws require consideration of cultural resources during project planning. At the federal level, NEPA and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, among others apply to transportation projects such as this one. In addition, state laws such as the Antiquities Code of Texas apply to these projects. Compliance with these laws often requires consultation with the Texas Historical Commission/Texas State Historic Preservation Officer and/or federally-recognized tribes to determine the project’s effects on cultural resources. Review and coordination of this project followed approved procedures for compliance with federal and state laws. a. Historic Structures A review of the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), the list of State Archeological Landmarks (SAL), and the list of Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (RTHL) indicated that no historically significant resources have been previously documented within the area of potential effects (APE). It has Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

26

been determined through consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) that the APE for the proposed project is the existing right-of-way. A site visit revealed that there are no historic-age (built prior to 1965), resources located within the proposed project APE. Two historic-age resources associated with the Green-Ballscheit House exist immediately adjacent to the existing ROW west of Loop 1604 and south of New Guilbeau Road. These resources were the subject of a Historic Resources Intensive Survey (May 2010) found in Appendix D. TxDOT historians have determined that none of the historic-age resources are NRHP eligible. Concurrence from the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation can be found in Appendix C. Pursuant to Stipulation V “Undertakings with No Potential to Affect Historic Resources” of the First Amended Programmatic Agreement Regarding the Implementation of Transportation Undertakings (PA-TU) between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Texas State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), TxDOT historians determined that the proposed action has no potential to affect historic properties and that individual project coordination with SHPO is not required. b. Archeological Resources Based on the results of an archeological background study and consultation, no further work is recommended. Multiple Section 106 consultations for the Loop 1604 corridor area in Bexar County have been conducted over the last several decades. Previous archeological investigations consisted of background literature and records reviews and pedestrian surveys. All work was done in accordance with the standards and guidelines defined in the Department of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines, the Guidelines of the Council of Texas Archeologists (CTA), and survey standards developed by the Texas Historical Commission (THC) in conjunction with the CTA. To date, eight previously recorded sites (41BX126, 41BX1003, 41BX1422 through 41BX1424, 41BX1465, 41BX1615, and 41BX1616) exist within a 1,000-meter search radius of the project limits. Given the previous level of impacts in the APE from extensive urban development, utilities (surface and subsurface), and roadway construction, as well as the geologic and soil characteristics of the study area, conditions within the APE are not conducive for the preservation of archeological deposits eligible for inclusion to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) (36 CFR 60) or for formal State Archeological Landmark (SAL) designation (13 TAC 26.12). Although archeologists for previous survey efforts recommended test excavations at 41BX1003, because there are no proposed impacts on the Loop 1604 southbound lanes in and around 41BX1003 (see Exhibit 5: Project Layout), it is unlikely that any archeological historic properties (36 CFR 800.16[1]) or SALs within the APE would be affected by the planned project. Consultation with federally-recognized Native American tribes was required for this project and concluded on August 8, 2010. No objections or expressions of concern were received from Native American tribes or other contacted parties, including the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation, adjacent property owners, and the general public. TxDOT archeologists completed their review of this project and determined that the project would have no effect or no adverse effect on archeological sites or cemeteries that would be afforded further consideration under cultural resource laws. TxDOT and the THC/Texas State Historic Preservation Officer (TXSHPO) consulted on the project impacts. In addition, no public controversy exists regarding the project’s potential impacts on archeological sites or cemeteries. In the event that unanticipated archeological deposits are encountered during construction, work in the immediate area would cease, and TxDOT archeological staff would be contacted to initiate post-review discovery procedures under the provisions of the First Amended Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

Programmatic Agreement among Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), TxDOT, the TXSHPO, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Regarding the Implementation of Transportation Undertakings (PA-TU), as well as the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the THC and TxDOT. J. SECTION 4(f) Under Section 4(f) of the 1966 Transportation Act, projects which impact or use public parks, recreation areas, wildlife or waterfowl refuges and historic sites, must perform a 4(f) evaluation. The proposed project would not require the use of nor substantially impair the purposes of any publicly owned land from a public park, recreational area, wildlife and waterfowl refuge lands or historic sites of national, state or local significance; therefore, a section 4(f) evaluation would not be required. K. HAZARDOUS MATERIALS Based on the proposed project activities including potential adjustment of utility lines and excavation in excess of three feet, an Initial Site Assessment (ISA) was conducted to identify potential hazardous materials in the project area. The ISA consisted of the following actions: determination of project design and ROW requirements, review of existing and previous land use, site survey, and ASTM E1527 level regulatory database search. An analysis of the ISA data indicates that this project would not involve the acquisition of known unresolved contamination where TxDOT could reasonably expect to assume liability for corrective action upon acquisition. In addition, this project does not involve known hazardous materials impacts that could be anticipated to adversely affect construction (e.g. cannot resolve before letting or during construction). The analysis of the radial database search identified 16 registered hazardous material sites within the recommended search distance criteria from the proposed project. The 16 facilities are comprised of two Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) – Generator facilities located within 1/8 mile of Loop 1604 (Wal-Mart and National Tire and Battery near Culebra Road/Loop 1604); one dry cleaner registration (DCR) (Comet Cleaners at Culebra Road), one industrial and hazardous waste (IHW) (Home Depot at Culebra Road), and seven petroleum storage tank (PST) sites within a ¼ mile radius of the target property. Three closed and abandoned landfills, one volunteer clean-up site, two leaking petroleum storage tanks (LPST), and five Tier II chemical reporting program sites are located within a ½ mile radius of the proposed project. None of the facilities found in the database were found to be apparent threats to the proposed project. The RCRA Generator facilities, DCR, IHW, and Tier II chemical reporting program are all registered databases that disclose activities at legally permitted sites. No violations or enforcements are reported at any of these facilities and no impacts to the proposed project are anticipated. Within the project limits, there are seven registered PST facilities. One of the registered facilities is listed as an LPST site. A review of TCEQ’s LPST database query indicated one additional LPST site located within ½ mile of the proposed project. According to the priority and status indicated in the list search, only minor soil contamination was indicated in both LPST listings. TCEQ issued the final concurrence for both listings and the cases are closed. The site survey and research into the historical land use did not reveal any other abandoned and/or active gasoline service stations. No construction work would be conducted adjacent to either of the LPST facilities and no ROW acquisition is anticipated; therefore, no impacts are anticipated and a Phase II assessment is not recommended.

Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

During preliminary investigation, three closed and abandoned landfills were identified within the search area. Two are located near FM 471 (Culebra Road) and Loop 1604 and one is located near Leslie Road. They are all within a ½ mile of the proposed project and each was identified in the 1989 Bexar County Survey. No information is available regarding the open/close date or size of any of these facilities. The volunteer clean-up site is a cattle dipping vat located at Braun Road. Final concurrence for soil contamination clean-up was issued November 1, 2002. No construction work would be conducted on Loop 1604 adjacent to any of these facilities and no ROW acquisition is anticipated; therefore, no impacts are anticipated and a Phase II assessment is not recommended. The assessment also included a review of readily available oil and gas information obtained from the Railroad Commission of Texas. No oil or gas wells were noted within or near the project study area. No pipeline easements are located in or transect the project study area. Texas Asbestos Health Protection Rules (25 TAC 295.61) require a survey for asbestos containing material (ACM) and a 10 working day, pre-demolition notification prior to the renovation or demolition of any public structure. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has determined that span bridges are public structures. No public structures as defined by the DSHS would be renovated or demolished; therefore, an asbestos survey would not be required. As previously stated, ROW acquisition or easements are not required for this project. Based on the assessment of this area, there is no indication that there are nearby releases into soils and/or shallow groundwater which may affect the proposed construction. If hazardous substances/wastes are encountered unexpectedly during construction, appropriate measures for proper management of the contamination would be initiated in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations. A summary table and map showing the location of the sites is provided in Appendix D: Technical Reports - GeoPlus Radius Report. L. CONSTRUCTION IMPACTS Most of the construction of this project would be handled under direct traffic using short-term daily lane/shoulder closures in accordance with the TxDOT Traffic Control Standards and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Construction of the storm sewer and widening along the southbound frontage road south of Culebra would require low profile concrete barrier and intermediateterm lane closures along the frontage road. Construction of the culvert under Alamo Ranch Parkway would require a temporary two-way detour along the existing eastbound lanes of Alamo Ranch Parkway. There are no railroad crossings with the proposed project study area and therefore, a railroad agreement would not be required for this work. There are no airports within 20,000 feet of the project with at least one runway that is more than 3,200 feet in length and therefore, an Airway-Highway permit would not be required. M. COMMUNITY IMPACTS The Loop 1604 Super Street project is located in a rapidly changing area of Bexar County. Bexar County and particularly the area along and outside Loop 1604 have experienced tremendous residential growth. Specifically, Alamo Ranch is a residential master planned community that is located west of Loop 1604 at Culebra Road. Land use adjacent to Loop 1604 is currently a mix of undeveloped land, residential, and commercial uses. Larger commercial/retail uses in the project area include Alamo Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

Environmental Document September 2010


Ranch retail center at Culebra Road and Loop 1604, Culebra Crossing retail center at Culebra Road and Loop 1604, and a retail strip center at New Guilbeau Road and Loop 1604. The proposed project is located within the Northside Independent School District. No schools are located directly adjacent to Loop 1604, but instead are located within the neighborhoods which they serve on Shaenfield Road (one elementary school and one middle school) and Bowen’s Crossing (one elementary school). Northwest Vista College is located southeast of the project limits at SH 151 and Loop 1604. Two churches, Zion Lutheran Church and Northwest Church of Christ, are located northwest of the project limits at Braun Road and Loop 1604. Undeveloped agricultural property exists on the east side of Loop 1604 south of New Guilbeau Road. The project would not require any additional ROW and therefore, no displacements. The construction of the “Super Street” configuration would result in temporary lane closures and slight delays. Road closures would not be necessary, allowing access during construction hours. The project would not separate any communities or reduce current community cohesion. Loop 1604 is currently one of two major circumferential highways in San Antonio. It existed prior to the steady development that has occurred around this facility. It currently serves as a boundary separating neighborhoods and communities. The proposed project would not change this relationship. There would also be no change in access with implementation of the “Super Street” configuration – only the opportunity to improve operational efficiency and safety. Traffic patterns would be optimized to ease congestion by only allowing right-turn movements. Drivers initially may be confused by the change in traffic pattern; however, the temporary learning curve can be minimized by effective use of advance guide signing and pavement markings. In general, the potential travel-time savings benefits would out-weigh these initial frustrations. N. ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE Executive Order (EO) 12898 “Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations” requires each Federal agency to “make achieving environmental justice part of its mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of its programs, policies and activities on minority populations and low-income populations.” FHWA has identified three fundamental principles of environmental justice: 1) to avoid, minimize or mitigate disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects, including social and economic effects, on minority populations and low-income populations; 2) to ensure full and fair participation by all potentially affected communities in the transportation decisionmaking process; 3) to prevent the denial of, reduction in or significant delay in the receipt of benefits by minority populations and low-income populations. Disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects are defined by FHWA as adverse effects that: 1) are predominately borne by a minority population and/or a low-income population, or 2) would be suffered by the minority population and/or low-income population and are appreciably more severe or greater in magnitude than the adverse effect that would be suffered by the non-minority population and/or non-low-income population. A low income population is defined as one with a median annual income for a family of four equal to or below the 2009 national poverty level of $22,050 according to the 2009 US Health and Human Services

Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

Poverty Guidelines12. Based on 2000 US Census Bureau data, the median annual income in the project area ranges from $42,425 to $63,625 within seven proposed project study area census tracts (Table 5). (See Exhibit 12 for census tract locations). A total of 574 of the 12,671 study area households were below the poverty level. Low income households constitute a small percentage (4.5%) of the population. There are no substantial groups of low-income persons in the study area, thus no disproportionately high or adverse impacts are anticipated.

The proposed Loop 1604 “Super Street� would provide enhanced operational efficiency and safety within the project study area. No road closure would be necessary, allowing usage of the roadway during construction hours and no new ROW or easements would be needed limiting direct impacts to adjacent land owners. Based on the above, all populations would benefit from the mobility and safety improvements associated with the proposed project and it would not create adverse impacts to any minority or low income population in proximity to the project. O. LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY Executive Order (EO) 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), requires federal agencies to examine the services they provide and identify any need for services to those with LEP. The EO requires federal agencies to work to ensure that recipients of federal financial assistance provide meaningful access to their LEP applicants and beneficiaries. Failure to ensure that LEP persons can effectively participate in or benefit from federally assisted programs and activities may violate the prohibition under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000d and Title VI regulations against national origin discrimination. An LEP household is one in which no member 5 years old and over speaks only English or speaks a non-English language and speaks English very well. Put another way, all members of an LEP household 5 years old and older have at least some difficulty with English. Based on review of 2000 U.S. Census Bureau data, the total LEP population of the project area households is approximately 2.7 percent.

The project would consist of operational improvements to implement a “Super Street” traffic configuration within the project study area. No road closures would be necessary. Visual field observation revealed that all signing along the road for residential properties are in English. TxDOT and ARMA will provide LEP populations with meaningful access to the programs, services, and information that TxDOT and ARMA provide. All public notices were published in La Prensa (in Spanish), and in the Express-News in English. Bilingual interpreters were available at the May 25, 2010 Super Street public meeting. Additionally, the ARMA website (www.alamorma.org), which is the official site for ARMA project information, uses Google Translator and translates into over 50 languages. Therefore, the requirements of EO 13166 appear to be satisfied. P. PUBLIC INVOLVMENT At the request of Texas State Representative Jose Menendez (District 124), the Alamo RMA hosted a meeting on Friday, January 29, 2010 for the purpose of presenting the findings of an initial feasibility study prepared by Pape-Dawson Engineers for proposed operational and safety improvements to Loop 1604 from an area generally beginning at Braun Road and extending to and including the intersection of Loop 1604 and SH 151. The study outlined improvements to provide interim relief on this corridor and operational efficiencies which could be gained by proceeding forward with a modified RCUT or “Super Street” concept. In an effort to keep the public engaged and involved in development of the project, the Alamo RMA hosted an Open House/Public Meeting to discuss the proposed project and present initial findings. The Open House/Public Meeting was held on May 25, 2010 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Northwest Park Baptist Church, 8550 Bowens Crossing, San Antonio, Texas. A total of 76 members of the public signed in, as well as three elected officials (or their representatives), and four members of the media. Comments received by June 4, 2010, as established in the legal notice for the public of this Open House/Public Meeting, were included in the Open House/Public Meeting summary report. Comments were submitted via email, US Postal Service mail, written comments at the Open House/Public Meeting, or verbal comments left with the Court Reporter. In general, the comments received centered around the following categories: • General project questions and comments • Operational questions and comments, including alternatives to the Super Street considered • Financing questions and comments.

Q. PERMITS/COMMITMENTS As part of the development of this environmental document, coordination with appropriate federal and state resource agencies was initiated. The agencies and their respective required permits or commitments pertinent to the proposed project are summarized below. Texas Commission on Environmental Quality TPDES SWP3 Texas Historical Commission Coordination under PA-TU and MOU referenced previously. No permits required. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Coordination under MOA referenced previously. No permits or commitments required. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Coordination under ESA informal consultation. No permit required. Commitments: • All clearing of potential habitat would take place outside of the nesting season for the Goldencheeked Warbler (between September 2nd and February 28th, while this species is not nesting). • Work would cease in the immediate area if a karst feature is encountered. An individual possessing a Section 10 (a) (1) (A) permit would be used to assess the feature. If a federally protected species is documented, formal consultation with the USFWS would be initiated. • TxDOT will install temporary fencing and implement a “no mow” zone surrounding the entrance to the Clandestine Cupola Cave. R. INDIRECT AND CUMULATIVE IMPACTS The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) defines indirect effects as those which are caused by the action and are later in time and farther removed in distance, but are still reasonably foreseeable. They may include growth induced effects and changes in the pattern of land use, population densities, or growth rates and related changes in air, water, or other natural resources and ecosystems. These effects may not necessarily be restricted to just the study area. The CEQ defines cumulative effects as those which result from the incremental impact of the action when added to other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable future actions regardless of what agency (federal or non-federal) or person undertakes such other actions. Cumulative impacts can result from individually minor but collectively significant actions taking place over a period of time. As such, it may be difficult to understand the role that a proposed action may have in contributing to the overall or cumulative impacts to an area or resource. In an effort to conduct indirect and cumulative effects analyses in an efficient, consistent, legally sufficient, and logical manner, TxDOT has prepared updated guidance for the preparation of indirect and cumulative effects analyses entitled Guidance on Preparing Indirect and Cumulative Impact Analyses, June 2009. According to CEQ regulations, indirect and cumulative effect must be considered for all projects. Although categorical exclusions (CEs) generally do not require a detailed indirect impact analysis or a cumulative impact analysis since these projects are by definition, minor projects without substantial environmental impacts, TxDOT, in consultation with FHWA determined that the screening Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

34

Environmental Document September 2010


tools as provided in TxDOTs indirect and cumulative effect analyses guidance (June 2009), would be appropriate to apply to this project. The screening tools were applied to determine if analysis of indirect and cumulative effects would be appropriate for the Loop 1604 Super Street project. a. Indirect Impacts Screening Tool Question 1: Does the project add capacity? The proposed project does not add capacity. TxDOT and the ARMA are proposing to implement a “Super Street” configuration within the proposed study area on Loop 1604. Generally, the proposed project would implement operational improvements and reconfigure intersections at New Guilbeau Road and Shaenfield Road with the installation of new traffic signal locations at each intersection. Also, the proposed ramp reversal for the southbound lanes of Loop 1604 at SH 151 would involve the removal of the existing southbound entrance ramp to Loop 1604 from Culebra Road, and construction of a proposed southbound exit ramp from Loop 1604 to Alamo Ranch Parkway and SH 151. These operational improvements would take place entirely within the existing right of way. No new right of way or easements are proposed. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart shows that the next step is to proceed to Question 2. Question 2: Does the Need and Purpose include economic development, or is the project proposed to serve a specific development? No, the Need and Purpose does not include economic development, nor is the project proposed to serve a specific development. As stated previously, the needs or problems to be addressed for the proposed project are decreased mobility and operational efficiency. The purpose of the project is to enhance mobility and operational efficiency by implementing a “Super Street” configuration to help reduce peak hour congestion and facilitate congestion management. Although the project area has experienced development and growth, the proposed project is not intended to serve any specific development. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart shows that the next step is to proceed to Question 3. Question 3: Is economic development or new opportunities for growth/development cited as a benefit of the project? This CE does not describe economic development or any opportunity for growth as a benefit of the proposed project. The proposed project offers operational improvements through the addition of traffic signals and associated reconfiguration of intersections. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart shows that the next step is to proceed to Question 4. Question 4: Does the project substantially increase access or mobility in the project area? No, the project would not substantially increase access or mobility in the project area. The purpose of the project is to improve level of service at intersections that are currently operating poorly. The project would provide temporary relief until capacity improvements can be completed (currently being investigated under a separated environmental study.) The proposed project would improve the existing intersections from LOS F and D to LOS C and B, thus providing localized operational improvements. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart shows that the project is unlikely to result in indirect impacts and no further analysis is required. b. Cumulative Impacts Screening Tool Question 1: Does the project add capacity? The proposed project does not add capacity. TxDOT and the ARMA are proposing to implement a “Super Street” configuration within the proposed study area on Loop 1604. Generally, the proposed Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

project would implement operational improvements and reconfigure intersections at New Guilbeau Road and Shaenfield Road with the installation of new traffic signal locations at each intersection as well as the proposed ramp reversal for the southbound lanes of Loop 1604 at SH 151 which would involve the removal of the existing southbound entrance ramp to Loop 1604 from Culebra Road, and construction of a proposed southbound exit ramp from Loop 1604 to Alamo Ranch Parkway and SH 151. No new right of way or easements are proposed. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart shows that the next step is to proceed to Question 2. Question 2: Does the project have substantial direct or indirect impacts on any resource? As discussed in the CE, the proposed project would not have any substantial direct effects. Further, the screening tool indicated that the project was unlikely to result in indirect impacts. Since the project is unlikely to result in indirect impacts and would not have any substantial direct effects, the answer to this question is no. Since the answer to this question is no, the flow chart indicates that the next step is to proceed to Question 3. Question 3: Are any resources in the area in poor or declining health? Yes, three endangered species are in poor or declining health and have the potential to exist within the project area. These include the Golden-cheeked Warbler, the Black-capped Vireo, and the Bracken Bat Cave Meshweaver. The Golden-cheeked Warbler is a migratory songbird present in Texas during the breeding season of early March through early August. It was listed as endangered in 1990 (55 Federal Register 53153-53160). Critical habitat has not been designated. The Black-capped Vireo was listed as endangered in 1987 (52 Federal Register 37420-37423). It is also a migratory bird that is present in Texas during the breeding season of April through July. Critical habitat has not been designated. The Bracken Bat Cave Meshweaver is a small, eyeless, or essentially eyeless spider that inhabits karst features in north and northwest Bexar County. It was listed as endangered in 2000 (65 FR 81419 – 81433) and its designated critical habitat was delineated in 2003 (68 FR 17155 – 17231). Since the answer to this question is yes, the flow chart shows that the next step is to proceed to Question 4. Question 4: Does the project impact any of these resources at all, directly or indirectly? No, the project does not impact any of these resources directly or indirectly. A determination was made that the proposed project may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect the Golden-cheeked Warbler and the Black-capped Vireo based on the known proximity of these species or their potential habitat to the proposed project and on the scope of the proposed project. Implementation of the proposed project would impact potential Golden-cheeked Warbler habitat; however, after two years of surveys, no birds have been encountered. Further, USFWS felt that the potential Golden-cheeked Warbler habitat identified within the ROW may be too fragmented to support a nesting territory. Noise during construction and moving the alignment closer to vegetated areas could result in an indirect effect; however, in light of USFWS assessment of potential habitat, the fact that no birds have been encountered to date, and because the clearing of this vegetation would take place outside of the nesting season, the project may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect this species. Following karst invertebrate habitat surveys and biological surveys in two features within the karst APE, karst biologists determined that the Bracken Bat Cave Meshweaver may exist within feature 1604-F19, now known as the Clandestine Cupola Cave; however, genetic sequencing confirmed that this species Loop 1604 CSJ: 2452-01-050

Proposed Loop 1604 Super Street, CSJ 2452-01-050, Bexar County

Dear Dr. Robertson: Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) received your Categorical Exclusion (CE), dated August 5, 2010, for impacts to rare, threatened, endangered species and other natural resources within or near the above referenced project. The CE was submitted in accordance with the environmental assessment requirements of the TxDOT/TPWD Memorandum of Understanding. Based on staff review of the information provided, TPWD offers the following comments concerning this project.

S. Reed Morian Houston Lee M. Bass Chairman-Emeritus Fort Worth

Carter

P. Smith

Executive

Director

Project Description The proposed project entails the construction of a "Super Street" on Loop 1604 West from New Guilbeau Road to SH 151. The project involves modifying three intersections to prohibit vehicles from crossing directly through or making a left turn onto Loop 1604. Instead, in order to cross the highway, a vehicle would need to enter the right-of-way (ROW) for Loop 1604, merge onto a left U-turn lane, merge onto the right-turn lane on the frontage road, and then continue onto the desired cross street. Or, to make a left turn, after merging onto the U-turn lane, the vehicle would continue to merge back onto Loop 1604 in the opposite direction. The proposed project would also add right-turn lanes, remove one entrance ramp and add one exit ramp. The three intersections affected include New Guilbeau Road, Shaenfield Road and SH 151/Alamo Ranch Parkway. Vegetation Vegetation on the project site was described as mostly mowed maintained ROW. Woody vegetation recorded within the ROWand on adjacent undeveloped lots included Ashe juniper (Juniperus ashei), Honey mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa), Netleaf hackberry (Celtis reticulata) and Live oak (Quercus virginiana).

Dr. Stirling J. Robertson Page Two August 23, 2010

Approximately, 8.15 acres of vegetation would be removed, including 1.19 acres of mostly closed canopy woody vegetation. Some of the areas proposed for clearing directly cross through currently intact stands of woodlands rather than only along the circumferences of the stands. This does not appear to be consistent with TxDOT's stated desire to minimize impacts on vegetation and wildlife. Recommendations: TPWD recommends TxDOT reevaluate its need to remove the woody vegetation in a manner that bisects the existing stands. Instead, TPWD advises the clearing be kept to the edges of the stands. This should include routing pipelines and drainageways along the edges of ROWs or through natural openings, instead of bisecting vegetation stands. The TxDOT seed mix for San Antonio District clayey soils includes Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) a species reported to be invasive and roadways are known major contributors to the expansion of invasive species. TxDOT noted that Little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) and Texas wintergrass (Nassella leuchotricha) to be some of the grass species occurring in the project area. Recommendations: TPWD encourages TxDOT to re-consider its role in the distribution of invasive seed and reevaluate its seed mixes. TPWD encourages TxDOT to use only native plant materials in its seed mixes or only native and non-invasive plant materials. The listing of invasive species reported to be significantly impacting natural areas in Texas is accessible online at http//www.texasinvasives.org/. TPWD recommends TxDOT mitigate for trees with greater than a 4 inch diameter at breast height (dbh) that must be removed due to project constraints. TxDOT should replace these trees using a 3: 1 replacement ratio; three saplings planted for each tree lost. Since longterm plans would likely negate anyon-site restoration, TPWD recommends TxDOT consider off-site mitigation, for instance at the Culebra Creek Park. Federal Regulations Endangered Species Act The Endangered Species Act provides a means to conserve endangered species, threatened species and the ecosystems which support them and to do so in conjunction with the seven treaties and conventions identified by the


Dr. Stirling J. Robertson Page Three August 23,2010

Act. The regulations for federally-listed species are contained in 50 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 17. Federal and State Listed Threatened Golden-cheeked Warbler (Dendroica chrysoparia) (GCW) Black-capped Vireo (Vireo atricapilla) (BCV) TxDOT has conducted 1.5 years of surveys at the site for the GCW and BCV. Surveys have been conducted in accordance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) permitting protocols without a positive observation of either GCWs or BCVs. Should the remaining 0.5 year of survey result in no observation of these species, TPWD would not anticipate direct adverse impacts to them. However, the additional reduction in size and fragmentation of stands of woodland could indirectly impact this species. As TxDOT noted the area has undergone significant rapid development in the last 10 years. Prior to the development, the surrounding area south of FM 471 consisted of large mostly contiguous blocks of woodland. The GCW exhibits site fidelity, returning to the same general nesting area used in the previous year. If the rapid development has not caused the local GCW population to abandon the remaining habitat, any remaining birds would likely be under greater pressure to utilize the remaining marginal stands, if not for nesting, then for foraging. Habitat for this species is difficult to restore since it consists of mature woodlands that take many years to develop. Any loss of potential habitat for this species should be mitigated. While the project site would not be appropriate for mitigation, an off-site location, for example at Culebra Creek Park or along the Culebra Creek or Helotes Creek floodplains would be appropriate areas for mitigation. Recommendations: If either species is observed or if the USFWS requests, TPWD recommends TxDOT enter formal consultations for impacts to these species. TPWD also encourages TxDOT to propose compensatory mitigation in addition to minimization and avoidance measures to reduce the indirect adverse impacts to the GCW. Federally Listed Endangered A ground beetle (Rhadine infernalis) Braken Bat Cave meshweaver (Cicurina venii)


Dr. Stirling J. Robertson Page Four August 23,2010

TxDOT conducted a karst fauna survey for the project area, which identified numerous features including one cave containing karst fauna. The fauna included one immature Cicurina beetle and one Neoleptoneta spider. The spider is currently under taxonomic evaluation for naming as a new species, and is known from only three other sites. Recommendations: TPWD recommends TxDOT protect and enhance this cave drainage area and the surrounding buffer within the ROW. The cave is located in the ROW approximately 500 feet from the proposed construction, and may not be directly impacted by project activities. However, TxDOT should take adequate steps to ensure the feature and its drainage basin are not inadvertently impacted. Project activities that could impact the cave and its drainage area include regrading drainage ditches, parking, stock piling material, etc. Precautionary measures could include signage, securing the entry, fencing or some alternative means. Additionally, since the survey identified an as yet undescribed species of Neoleptoneta spider, TPWD urges TxDOT to take appropriate action now to protect and enhance the remaining habitat for the conservation of this species. The federal status of the Cicurina species found in the cave could not be ruled out, since only an immature specimen was collected which could not be identified to species level. TPWD recommends TxDOT attempt to survey further for an adult specimen to confirm the identity of the Cicurina species in this cave, preferably using a non-lethal survey method. TPWD recommends TxDOT provide assistance to its consultants for obtaining right-of-entry access to evaluate/excavate the remaining karst features. If and when access is gained and additional surveys are conducted, TPWD would appreciate receiving a copy of the additional survey report at this office. State Regulations Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) Code Please be aware that a written response to a TPWD recommendation or informational comment received by a state governmental agency on or after September 1, 2009 may be required by state law. For further guidance, see the Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) Code, Section 12.0011 which can be found online at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PW/htmlPW.12.htm# 12. 0011. For tracking purposes, please refer to TPWD project number 6131 in any return correspondence.

Laws and regulations pertammg to state-listed endangered or threatened animal and plant species are contained in Chapters 67, 68 and 88 of the TPW Code. Except as otherwise provided in the subchapters, no person may take, possess, propagate, transport, export, sell or offer for sale, or ship any species of fish or wildlife listed by the department as endangered or threatened. Recommendations: TPWD does not anticipate significant adverse impacts to state-listed threatened species from this project. If rare or listed species are encountered, TPWD should be re-contacted for additional guidance. Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Code The TCEQ administers the Water Quality Certification program under the Clean Water Act (CWA), Section 401. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has delegated administrative authority to TCEQ under CW A, Section 106 for permitting and compliance of stormwater discharges. TxDOT plans to construct the "Super Street" in accordance with TCEQ regulations for disturbance of greater than 5 acres. While the project is not within the recharge zone, it is within the Artesian Zone and the northern project terminus comes within approximately 900 feet of the mapped Transition Zone boundary of the Edwards Aquifer. The mapped boundary lines for the various zones of the aquifer and most geologic formations are imprecise in most areas due to the limitations in analysis or map scale. Consequently, transition zones between geologic areas often include overlaps or fingers crossing boundaries, but which are not known or not depicted on the maps. The karst fauna survey identified caves and numerous karst features within and near the ROW mostly at the southrnost segment of the project. As indicated in the karst fauna survey report, the feature 1604-F019 could under future modification receive runoff flow and develop into a recharge feature to the Edwards Aquifer. Recommendations: TPWD recommends TxDOT follow TCEQ guidelines for working in the transition zone at this southernmost segment. TPWD recommends TxDOT protect and enhance the cave drainage area associated with feature 1604-F019 and the surrounding buffer within the ROW, not only for conservation of the cave species, but also for the protection of water quality in the Edwards Aquifer. TxDOT should pursue obtaining the right-of-entry and survey the karst features located within the buffer zone in karst zone 2 that have not yet

been surveyed. The precautions stated above should be applied to any additional caves found by the additional surveys, if they contain rare karst fauna. TPWD appreciates the opportunity to provide comments regarding potential adverse impacts on natural resources.

Introduction This intensive historic resources survey report prepared by Michael Baker Jr., Inc. (Baker) is intended to supplement the previous reconnaissance survey work conducted by HNTB Corporation in April 2007. Their Historic Resources Survey: Loop 1604, Bexar and Guadalupe Counties, Texas included the property slated for intensive study (identified as Resource 102, The Balscheidt House) which shall be referred to in this report as Resources 1a and 1b, with the correct spelling of “Ballscheit” as the Green – Ballscheit property. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Environmental Affairs Division and the City of San Antonio requested that a more in depth study be performed. The original survey presents documentation and evaluation of all pre-1966 resources (based on the proposed let date of 2010) located within the proposed project’s area of potential effects (APE). Cultural resources are structures, buildings, archeological sites, districts (a collection of related structures, buildings, and/or archeological sites), cemeteries and objects. Both federal and state laws require consideration of cultural resources during project planning. At the federal level, NEPA and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, among others, apply to transportation projects such as this one. In addition, state laws such as the Antiquities Code of Texas apply to these projects. Compliance with these laws often requires consultation with the Texas Historical Commission/Texas State Historic Preservation Officer and/or federally-recognized tribes to determine the project’s effects on cultural resources. Review and coordination of this project followed approved procedures for compliance with federal and state laws. The information provided in this report is intended for use in regulatory compliance and coordination as per the requirements of the above and their implementing regulations. Michael Baker Jr., Inc. prepared this report for submittal to TxDOT, Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (Alamo RMA), and the City of San Antonio. Project Description The current proposed action would improve Loop 1604 from IH 35 to US 90, with minimal areas of new ROW acquisition. The Green - Ballscheit property is included within a Super Street project associated with the Loop 1604 improvements, scheduled for letting in by September 2010. In schematic drawings provided by HNTB, the house and sub-grade storage are shown to be within existing TxDOT-owned right-of-way (ROW) (Figure 1, Appendix B and additional images included in Appendix D). Site Description Located outside the northwest section of Loop 1604 just south of New Guilbeau Road in Bexar County, the Green - Ballscheit property consists of a dwelling with an associated well/storage facility. The building and structure are located just outside the maintained portion of the ROW, surrounded by plentiful vegetation. Other properties lie between the Green - Ballscheit property and Leslie Road, which connects to Loop 1604 south of the property, then runs roughly parallel Loop 1604 past Braun Road to the north. The area as a whole has some rural domestic and agricultural properties contrasting with recently constructed residential subdivisions (Figure 2, Appendix B). Methodology Area of Potential Effects (APE) Through consultation with the Environmental Affairs Division (ENV) of TxDOT and the Texas Historical Commission (THC) the APE for the 2007 HNTB reconnaissance survey was limited to 150-feet from the existing ROW and proposed ROW. For the intensive survey, the focus was on the parcel that had contained the Green - Ballscheit property before it had been divided and purchased for ROW.

Research Methods Prior to the field visit, a Baker architectural historian examined the Texas Historic Sites Atlas to identify any previously recorded resources in the project area. Baker staff also checked for properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), properties designated as Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (RTHL), properties designated as State Archeological Landmarks (SAL), and to identify Official State Historical Markers (OSHM) within the project’s APE. The primary research effort for the intensive survey was undertaken on-line at several web sites. Baker’s professional historian provided research assistance during the preparation of this report by conducting online searches in the Texas Historical Association’s The Handbook of Texas Online, providing general regional information. The most informative website was hosted by Bexar County Clerk’s Office (electronic documents were available there as outlined in the Sources Consulted section at the end of this report). The on-line archives of the Zion Lutheran Church and the 1870 and 1920 US Census provided biographical information for this report. Additional information was gleaned from the 2007 HNTB Historic Resources Survey: Loop 1604, Bexar and Guadalupe Counties, Texas report and the Historic Farms and Ranches of Bexar County, Texas, a 2007 draft National Register of Historic Places Multiple Property Documentation Form, produced by Prewitt and Associates, Inc. Field Investigations Baker’s Senior Professional Historian conducted preliminary research and fieldwork in Bexar County on April 12, 2010. During April 19 – 22, 2010, two pre-certified architectural historians from Michael Baker Jr., Inc. (Baker) surveyed the project’s area of potential effects. This intensive field survey consisted of walking through the Green - Ballscheit property, identifying and documenting resources built prior to 1966, and taking measurements of the most prominent features to produce a sketch plan of the site and structures. A visit to the family cemetery provided the correct spelling of the property name which allowed for successful deed research. NRHP Registration Requirements The information provided in this section is based upon the National Park Service’s publication entitled National Register Bulletin 15: How to Apply the National Register Criteria for Evaluation, which defines the standard criteria by which all properties nominated are judge. The above recommendations are based upon these requirements. In general, in order for a property to be eligible for listing in the NRHP, it must represent a significant aspect of history, architecture, archaeology, engineering, or culture of an area, and also possess the characteristics or integrity to make it a good representative of properties associated with that aspect of the past”. In other words, although every historic-age property exists within a context and has historic associations, in order to be Eligible for listing in the NRHP the resource must demonstrate a significant association under one or more of the listed NRHP Criteria within its historic context. The resource must also be recognizable to its period of significance and retain the level of integrity necessary to convey that significance. The final evaluation of the resources identified above was undertaken at the completion of field and research efforts and followed a logical set of steps. These steps included:     

Categorizing the property as district, site, building, structure, or object Determining the prehistoric or historic context(s) that the property represents; Determining whether the property is significant under the National Register Criteria; Determining if the property represents a type usually excluded from the National Register (and Criteria Considerations); and Determining whether the property retains integrity

Categorization The first step in the evaluation/assessment process is to categorize the type of property/resource that is targeted for study. Specifically, an NRHP-eligible resource may be a building, structure, object, site, or district. A building is defined as any man-made resource that was built to house human habitation or activity. Structures, on the other hand, are man-made, utilitarian resources that were not built to house human habitation/shelter. Objects are defined as portable resources that are either small-scale or artistic/commemorative in nature, such as historical markers. Sites are defined as locations of events, ruined buildings or structures, or areas that possess cultural, historic, or archaeological value, for example a cemetery and a district is a grouping of resources that are united “historically or aesthetically by plan or physical development”. Determining the Context(s) The next step includes an identification of what the property represents and its associated theme(s), geographical limits, and chronological period to provide a perspective from which to evaluate the property's historical significance. Please note that historical themes/context are found at a local (town, city, regional, etc.), state, or national level. Determining Significance Once a property is categorized and its appropriate historic context(s) identified, the next step is to determine if the resource has significance within that historic context. When evaluated within an historic context/theme, a resource must be found to be significant within one or more of the below-listed Criteria for Evaluation in order to be included in the NRHP. These criteria are formally defined in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 36, Part 60 and include: 

Criterion A: Event – This criterion includes properties that are associated with events that have made a significant contribution to broad patterns of our history. In order to be found eligible under this criterion, identified resources must display a significant association within the established theme.

Criterion B: Person – This criterion includes properties that are associated with the lives of persons significant in our past. In order to be found eligible under this criterion, resources must display a significant association with a noteworthy individual.

Criterion C: Design/Construction – This criterion includes properties that embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or method of construction, or that represent the work of a master, or that possess high artistic values, or that represent a significant and distinguishable entity whose components may lack individual distinction. In order to be found eligible under this criterion, resources must display significant architectural, engineering or design features.

Criterion D: Information Potential – This criterion includes properties that have yielded, or may be likely to yield, information important in prehistory or history. In order to be found eligible under this criterion, resources must display archaeological significance.

Criteria Considerations There are certain properties that are not typically considered Eligible for listing in the NRHP. These resources include religious properties, moved properties, birthplaces, graves, cemeteries, reconstructed properties, commemorative properties, or properties less than 50 years old. However, properties in these categories can be eligible if they meet special conditions called Criterion Considerations as well as one of the four Criteria for Eligibility and possess the necessary level of integrity. See National Register Bulletin 15:

How to Apply the National Register Criteria for Evaluation for detailed discussion of the Criterion Considerations. Integrity Integrity is defined as a property’s ability to convey its significance and should be assessed after a property’s significance has been fully established. The following aspects combine to define integrity. In order to be eligible for the NRHP, a must be identified as historically and/or architecturally significant and must possess several if not most of these aspects. 

Location – The place where the property was originally constructed or where an historic event occurred. In order to retain their integrity of location, resources must not have been moved and remain in situ;

Design – The combination of elements that create the form, plan, space, structure, and style of a property. In order to retain their integrity of design, resources must not be significantly added to or altered and must retain a preponderance of their character-defining features;

Setting – The physical environment of a historic property. In order to retain their integrity of setting, the area within which the resources exist must not be significantly altered;

Materials – The physical elements that were combined or deposited during a particular period of time and in a particular pattern or configuration to form a historic property. In order to retain its integrity of materials, the historic-age fabric of a resource must not be significantly replaced, covered, or removed.

If a resource has been determined to be significant, it is then necessary to identify the character-defining features and the extent to which these features must be present in order for the resource to adequately express its significance. Once the character-defining features are identified, the resource should be compared with similar properties. Finally, based on the significance and identified essential character-defining features, the aspects of integrity that are particularly vital to the propriety should be identified. If the property retains the aspects of integrity deemed vital to its significance, then it should be recommended as eligible for listing. Previously Identified Resources National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) There are no NRHP-listed or previously determined eligible resources within the intensive survey project’s area of potential effects. Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (RTHL) There are no RTHL properties within the project’s area of potential effects. State Archeological Landmarks (SAL) There are no SAL properties within the project’s area of potential effects. Official Texas Historical Markers (OTHM) There are no OTHM within the project’s area of potential effects.

Historical Overview of the Region The HNTB Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2007 Historic Resources reconnaissance survey provided the following discussion of the general history of the project area: With the winning of Texas independence, Bexar County was established on December 20, 1836, with San Antonio as county seat. The newly formed Bexar County covered much of the western edge of settlement in Texas. Since 1860, when the partitioning of Bexar County began, 128 counties have been carved from the original county, leaving the present county at 1,248 square miles. Bexar County was generally a sparsely populated region during the years following statehood with most of the population living in San Antonio. The economy was based, as it had been during the Spanish and Mexican periods, on ranching and subsistence agriculture. Livestock, such as cattle, oxen, milk cows, swine, horses and sheep, accounted for the most important agricultural product in the county's early years. Corn constituted the most important crop, followed by oats, beans, and other vegetables. The amount of farmland actually in use was very small: less than 5 percent of the total land in farms (5,062 of 135,182 acres) had been tilled, and as late as 1858 three-fourths of the county's terrain was still prairie. The size of the farms was also small, with most less than fifty acres. The local economy was stimulated with the arrival of the first railroad, the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway, which reached San Antonio in February 1877. The completion of the rail link with the coast made the shipment of local products easier and contributed to rapid growth in population with the number of inhabitants in the county nearly doubling from 1870 to 1880. Many of the new residents were recent immigrants from Mexico and Europe, particularly Germany. Although Germans had begun to immigrate to the area in large numbers as early as the late 1840s, the numbers dramatically increased during this period. In 1881 a second railroad, the International-Great Northern, reached the city from the northeast. The completion of the two railroads not only resulted in prosperity, but contributed to changing the physical appearance of the county. Before the 1870s the physical environment still reflected its Mexican heritage in appearance, despite relatively large numbers of English, Irish, and Germans. The influx of new settlers as well as manufactured building products brought by the railroad, gradually transformed the area. By 1890, for the first time, the number of the county's inhabitants born in Germany outnumbered those who had been born in Mexico. The construction of the railroads also stimulated the establishment of some new communities, including Converse, which is within the project APE. But despite the growth of the new communities, by 1890 the majority of the county population resided in San Antonio. The areas included within the project APE to the west, north and east of the urban center were extremely rural and separated from the city. Between 1880 and 1920 the agricultural economy grew dramatically with both the number of farms and the amount of acreage more than doubling. Following World War I, truck farming began to increase, with the principal crops during this period including corn, milo, hegari, cane, oats, vegetables, and fruits. By the late 1940s, Bexar County also was a significant source of beef cattle, and poultry raising and dairying were an

increasingly important part of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy with more than half of the county's agricultural receipts. Between 1910 and 1930 cotton, which had previously been grown only in small quantities, became one of the county's most important cash crops. Between 1880 and 1926 the number of bales of cotton produced rose from 1,543 to 27,505. During the same period the amount of land used in the production of cotton grew so that by the mid-1920s nearly one-third of the improved farmland was used for cotton culture. The same period also saw a steady rise in the number of tenant farmers in the county. Before 1880 fewer than 10 percent of the farmers were tenants; in 1910 some 40 percent of the farms were worked by tenants; and by 1930 more than half, 1,580 of 3,205 farms, were operated by non-owners. The majority of the leaseholders were Anglos, but much of the labor was performed by persons of Mexican descent, who were poorly paid and frequently lived in poverty. During the 1920s Bexar County experienced the beginnings of agricultural mechanization. Tractors and other machines appeared in the county in increasing numbers, and by the eve of World War II, Bexar County farms were among the most mechanized in the state. The onset of the Great Depression, falling agricultural prices, and the arrival of the boll weevil brought hardships for many of the farmers of Bexar County. Many were forced to leave the land and move to the city or to turn to other occupations. Cotton production, which peaked in the mid-1920s, fell dramatically during the 1930s and 1940s. Farmers who remained in the area began to devote more of their resources to truck farming and to growing feed for livestock. Beginning in the second half of the nineteenth century San Antonio also developed as an important military center. The San Antonio Arsenal was opened in 1858, and in 1878 the city deeded ninety acres to the federal government for what eventually became Fort Sam Houston. During World War I, Kelly and Brooks Fields (which later became Kelly Air Force Base and Brooks Air Force Base) were established to train pilots, and in 1931 Randolph Field was established as a primary flight training base. During World War II, Bexar County's already large military presence grew even more, as the area's bases became an important center for the training of army air corps cadets under the auspices of the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center. At the height of the war, more than 21,000 civilian war workers were employed at Kelly Field alone. After the war, the presence of so many military personnel continued to bring changes to the county. Thousands of returning veterans enrolled in local colleges and universities, and many others, attracted by the area during their service years, moved to the city. San Antonio also developed into a major retirement center for military families, drawn by the relatively low cost of living and the access to the two large area military medical centers, Wilford Hall and Brooke Army Medical Center. Since the end of the World War II, the economy of the area has continued to depend heavily on a large federal payroll from the various military bases and research facilities, and from the large number of retired military residents.

In a more specific discussion of the area wherein the Green - Ballscheit property is located, the HNTB Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reconnaissance report presented the following: This part of the project area is notable for its German immigrant settlement and agricultural influence. The largest ethnic group in Texas with roots from Europe has been persons of German birth or descent. As early as 1850, they constitute more than five percent of the total Texas population, a proportion that remained constant through the remainder of the nineteenth century. The Germans tended to cluster in ethnic groups with the majority settling in a broad, fragmented belt across the south central part of the state. They moved in groups from confined districts in Germany to settle in similarly confined colonial areas oversees. In this manner, people from small rural areas in Germany settled a county or part of a county in Texas. Typically, their neighbors had been neighbors in the Fatherland. Large numbers of German settlers in Texas developed a particular style of vernacular architecture that is reflected in the resources identified within the APE of [this section]. In general, Germans immigrating to Texas adopted typically southern Anglo-American plans such as the dog-run style house. However their version of the dog-run style was frequently less elongated and more squat than many of this style built by other groups with some outbuildings close-in towards the house. Other outbuildings, related to animals and field work were located nearer to the fields. They also chose not to retain traditional German styles of architecture such as the custom of combining human and animal shelter under one roof or the central German plan in which farm buildings were grouped closely around an enclosed farmyard. Beginning c. 1850, the Texas Germans most commonly used hewn stonemasonry for building construction, departing from their European traditions of log and half-timbering. They also embraced wooden shingles for roofing rather than to continue with their traditional custom of thatched roofs. The architectural style, planning, and construction methods are reflected in many of the historic-age resources that were identified in [this section] of the project.

Reconnaissance Survey Findings This section outlines the resources identified in the April 2007 reconnaissance field survey performed by HNTB. The project area consisted of Loop 1604 and its interchanges from Military Drive West to FM 1346, which represents a somewhat different area than that covered in the 2010 reconnaissance survey currently being performed by Baker (Loop 1604 from US 90 to IH 35). HNTB identified 159 historic-age resources at 104 locations within the project area. There are 14 commercial, 40 domestic, 59 agricultural farmstead, 37 bridges, five transportation, and four military resources. NRHP Not Eligible Resources Almost all resources identified during the reconnaissance survey (101 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 204d) were recommended not eligible, including the Green - Ballscheit (Balscheidt) property, with the ten exceptions shown below.

Intensive Survey Investigations Property Description The State of Texas awarded a Letter Patent, signed by Governor E. M. Pease in 1845, to Peter Odit. It is referred to as Survey 264 and contained 640 acres of land 13 miles north and west of San Antonio, Texas. It appears that portions of the survey were subdivided and sold to various individuals over the course of time. In 1866 Jacob Hoffma, purchased 200 acres out of Survey 264 and then in 1868, sold 100 acres to John Green. Green died in 1873 and the property was transferred to his widow Augusta Green (nee Gugger). Augusta retained control of the property throughout her later marriages and until her death in 1927. In 1929 her heirs sold the 100 acre estate to Bernard and Lena Paul for the sum of $3,000.00. The record is rather vague after this period until Nancy Bowen Creamer purchased several parcels from Survey 264 in 1978. The land appears to have been further subdivided as depicted it the most recent appraisal district drawings (Figure 3, Appendix B) and only contains 1.8 acres within that boundary.

Biographical and Resource Development The earliest record of the Green – Ballscheit property is a Letter Patent awarded to Peter Odit in 1845 by the State of Texas, which shows no indication of any development thereon. When John Green purchased the 100 acre tract from Jacob Hoffman in 1866, all indications are that he began developing the property sometime after 1868. The 1870 U.S. Census lists John Green, his wife Augusta, a son named Willie and a relative, Henry Green, residing on the property in Bexar County. John was born in Germany in 1840 and immigrated to Texas with his family at six years of age. He worked as a ranch hand and during the Civil War served with the frontier forces of the Confederacy. He achieved some notoriety for his skills as a fighter and tracker. His occupation in the census is listed as farmer, but he also served with Texas Ranger Minute Men Historic Resources Intensive Survey Report – May 2010 Loop 1604 from New Guilbeau Road to SH 151: Green - Ballscheit Property Michael Baker Jr., Inc.

Troop Company V after his move to the Helotes area. He died in an accidental shooting in 1873. The Greens had three children; Willie, John, and Mary. Augusta Green (nee Gugger) was the daughter of Anton and Marie Gugger. The Guggers moved to Helotes in 1840. Augusta was born in 1848 and married John Green around 1868 and after his death married two more times. First to Robert Robinson, during that time a daughter, Ellen (Eleanore) was born. Her last marriage was to Julius Ballscheit which continued until his death in 1923. Augusta retained control over the 100 acres originally purchased by John Green during her subsequent marriages.

All evidence appears to supports the assumption that John Green began the initial phase of construction of the dwelling (Resource 1a). He needed a place for his new bride and there were qualified craftsmen (the Census shows several stonemasons the area) to assist in the building of his house. It appears that Augusta remain in the house after his death. Records from around 1925 to 1929 state that this was Augusta’s homestead and the property was commonly called the “Green/Ballscheit Farm.” Julius Ballscheit was born in Prussia in 1851 and immigrated to the United States in 1880, arriving at the port of New York. His marriage to Augusta was blessed by the birth of a daughter, Emma who survived her parents by many years. The first record of Julius and Augusta Ballscheit residing in the Helotes area was recorded in the 1920 Census, with Julius’s occupation listed as farmer,. During his time on the property he acquired additional land holdings around Leslie Road but they were sold prior to his death in 1923. From the on-site examination of the resources one can realistically form a pattern and the approximate period of construction from evidence gathered (Figure 4, Appendix B). The initial or first phase on construction was the large west room, and the second phase appears to be the north room attached to the large west room. The third phase appears to be the large east room and sub-grade cellar to the north. The cellar originally had a sub-grade entry on the north side but was filled with rubble and cement in the early part of the 20th century. The final phase of construction was the small east room as evidenced by the use of rubble, metal spikes as ties, cement, and the popular large windows in fashion during the period 1915 to 1925. The variety of construction methods used to build on the Green - Ballscheit property suggest that the structures as we see them now were not all built at the same time. The nogging over the extant west window opening on the south side of the house indicates an earlier time of construction than those lintels formed by Historic Resources Intensive Survey Report – May 2010 Loop 1604 from New Guilbeau Road to SH 151: Green - Ballscheit Property Michael Baker Jr., Inc.

cedar beams. The solid stone lintel over the west window on the north side suggests another phase of construction, most likely between the other two.

Another indication that the house was built over time are the two distinct stonework patterns in the walls. While the two larger rooms to the south have precisely cut stones or coursed rubble carefully arranged, some of the walls enclosing the smaller room to the north and at the east end are merely piled rubble, held together with metal spikes and cementitious stucco. A third method of wall construction was also employed: between the small rooms is a wood-walled enclosure joins the north rooms together under a single shed roof.

The large, stone-lined sub-grade storage facility may have been constructed as a well but its stucco lining and approximately eight-foot diameter make grain storage a more likely use. Sections of the house (including the cellar under the small east room) are also clad in lime-based stucco, suggesting a similar construction period as carried out the in the large east room. This is evidenced further by the use of worked stone and that the north wall of the east room rests on the south wall of the cellar.

Historic Contexts Of the possible historic contexts presented in the reconnaissance report, the following are appropriate areas in which to evaluate the Green - Ballscheit property: • Agriculture/Ranching in Bexar and Guadalupe Counties 1850-1965 • German Ethnic Settlement in Bexar County 1850 to 1965 • Community Planning and Development in Bexar and Guadalupe Counties 1850 to 1965 Integrity What had once been the living quarters (Resource 1a) on Julius Ballscheit’s sizable land holdings now lies in ruin. The west wall has entirely collapsed and the only remaining roofing sits precariously over the northeast corner of the building. The condition of the floors is difficult to assess, as they are covered in the rubble of the walls and roof. The floor over the cellar has a few intact boards; most have fallen through the joists. A few window-framing boards are still in place, but all glazing and most of the sashes are gone. The sub-grade grain storage container is collapsing in on itself, the top ring of stones now cantilevered out over the opening, with no cover. It is apparent by the overgrowth of vegetation that the site has been long abandoned. Vandalism may have hastened its collapse and decay. The reconnaissance report states, “The ruins of the Ballscheidt (Green – Ballscheit)) House are located to the west of Loop 1604, just south of Guilbeau Road. This resource is within the project APE and consists of the remains of a nineteenth century stone residential structure that has completely collapsed. Because the structure retains none of the aspects of integrity prescribed by the National Register criteria it is recommended as Not Eligible for the NRHP.” This intensive report refutes the use of the word “completely” when describing the extent of the buildings collapse, as several of the walls are still standing. The property also retains integrity of location despite the reconnaissance report’s assertion that it retains none of the seven aspects, as it remains in the place where it was originally constructed.

Its integrity of design is severely hampered by not only its collapse, but by the obvious changes that have occurred over time, rendering the intent of the original design unknowable. Its setting is now very different than when it was constructed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; early maps show little development in the area as late as 1961, when Loop 1604 was not yet constructed. While many of the materials of the house and well/storage tank are still present, the overall integrity of them is challenged by the addition of later materials and the current condition of the original fabric. Twentieth-century cementitious stucco covers some of the walls and fills the cellar entry on the north side, and what remains of the roof is a late replacement. Several walls lie crumbled both inside and out of the house, leaving their true assembly unknown. While some of the collapse allows the materials to be better seen, they no longer are functioning in the way they were intended. The same can be said of the workmanship. What is now visible reveals the variations of building methods used over the years of construction and alteration, but its condition compromises its integrity. The property also fails to convey integrity of feeling and association, given its present condition and changes in its surroundings (as can be seen in the images above). Comparative Analysis Sufficient resources, material, and evidence of workmanship remain of the Green - Ballscheit property for comparison with other similar properties that are within an approximate one mile radius. There are two properties within that one mile radius. They are the Phillip Reumpel Homestead (103, 2007 HNTB) and the Freidrick Braun/Rosseau Homestead (104, 2007 HNTB) (see images below). Both exhibit the same approximate period of construction, materials and workmanship as the Green â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ballscheit resources. The comparative properties used stone as the primary building material for the dwelling and many outbuildings and structures. All were properties that were utilized for agricultural purposes and retain structures relating to that endeavor. However, that is where the comparison ends. The Braun/Rosseau and Reumpel properties have retained many of the associated buildings and structures that are representative of the period, ethnic heritage, and agricultural function. Although they have both been reduced in acreage over the decades there is an acceptable level of integrity that qualifies them as eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Sadly, as shown, that is not the case for the Green-Ballscheit property.

Significance The Green-Ballscheit resources are interesting and worth the level of documentation that is provided in this report, but the resources fail to exhibit sufficient integrity of design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association to convey significance. The level of deterioration that is evident in what remains of the resources precludes its rising to the level of significance required for NRHP eligibility. Although there is evidence of the original design and workmanship involved in the construction of the resources, the condition of the resources diminishes its integrity as to design, materials, workmanship, and feeling. The immense decrease in its acreage after its period of significance also lessens the integrity of setting and association. The property and resources fail to reach the level of significance within the contexts of Agriculture/Ranching in Bexar and Guadalupe Counties, 1850-1965, German Ethnic Settlement in Bexar County, 1850 to 1965 and Community Planning and Development in Bexar and Guadalupe Counties 1850 to 1965 that were set forth in the reconnaissance survey. The Reumpel and Braun/Rosseau comparative properties have a much greater integrity and can be placed comfortably within the first two. Intensive Survey Findings This section outlines the resources identified in the April 2010 intensive survey effort. Two historic-age resources were identified, but neither is recommended as eligible for listing in the NRHP.

NRHP Not Eligible Resources Resource 1a: This circa 1870 stone farmhouse has been altered, is collapsing and has been victim to modern changes to its setting. Although John Frank Green achieved a level of recognition due to his “Ranger” service, there is a lack of integrity in the resources and property for that to rise to a level of significance and since his time of occupation was for a brief five year time span. The resource has fails to maintain an adequate degree of integrity to convey its historical significance. As a result the resource is recommended not eligible for NRHP inclusion under Criteria A, B, or C. Resource 1b: This underground well/grain-storage structure has no intact cover and is collapsing in on itself. If Resource 1a were more intact, this feature could be considered as contributing to the site, but on its own it fails to convey any historical significance. It is recommended not eligible for NRHP inclusion under Criteria A, B, or C. NRHP Eligible Resources None identified. Potential Impacts to NRHP Eligible Resources A review of the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), the list of State Archeological Landmarks (SAL), and the list of Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (RTHL) indicated that no historically significant resources have been previously documented within the area of potential effects (APE). A site visit revealed that there are two historic-age (built prior to 1965), resources located within Project APE. TxDOT historians have determined that none of the historic-age resources are NRHP eligible. Pursuant to Stipulation VI “Undertakings with the Potential to Affect Historic Resources” of the First Amended Programmatic Agreement Regarding the Implementation of Transportation Undertakings (PA-TU) between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Texas State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), TxDOT historians determined that no NRHPeligible properties are present and that individual project coordination with SHPO is not required. Potential Section 4(f) Properties The proposed project would not result in the taking of land from NRHP-listed or NRHP-eligible resources that are subject to the requirements of Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act (23 CFR 771). The proposed project would not result in a use of contributing elements of NRHP-eligible resources.

On the west, the darkest area includes stone blocks (nogging) used to form the window lintel in the cut stone walls and next darkest area uses a single stone. On the east house, the large room uses solid wood as lintels in the openings and uses the same building techniques used in the cellar which was constructed the same time. The small east room and central hall have rubble or wooden board walls that indicate an early 20th century period of construction. The well/storage is assumed to be built around the same time as the main portion of the east side because of similar stone and stucco use.

AIRSAFS

Aerometric Information Retrieval System / Air Facility Subsystem

VERSION DATE: 3/2009

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) modified the Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS) to a database that exclusively tracks the compliance of stationary sources of air pollution with EPA regulations: the Air Facility Subsystem (AFS). Since this change in 2001, the management of the AIRS/AFS database was assigned to EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. Brownfields Management System

BF VERSION DATE: 1/2010

Brownfields are real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land, and both improves and protects the environment. The United States Environmental Protection Agency maintains the activities, including grantee assessment, cleanup and redevelopment, of the various Brownfield grant programs through the Brownfields Management System database. BRS

Biennial Reporting System

VERSION DATE: 1/2003

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in cooperation with the States, biennially collects information regarding the generation, management, and final disposition of hazardous wastes regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended. The purpose of this report is to communicate the findings of EPA's Biennial Reporting System (BRS) data collection efforts to the public, government agencies, and the regulated community. Currently, the EPA states that data collected between 1991 and 1997 was originally a part of the defunct Biennial Reporting System and is now incorporated into the RCRAInfo data system. CDL

Clandestine Drug Laboratory Locations

VERSION DATE: 3/2009

The U.S. Department of Justice ("the Department") provides this information as a public service. It contains addresses of some locations where law enforcement agencies reported they found chemicals or other items that indicated the presence of either clandestine drug laboratories or dumpsites. In most cases, the source of the entries is not the Department, and the Department has not verified the entry and does not guarantee its accuracy. Members of the public must verify the accuracy of all entries by, for example, contacting local law enforcement and local health departments. The Department does not establish, implement, enforce, or certify compliance with clean-up or remediation standards for contaminated sites; the public should contact a state or local health department or environmental protection agency for that information.

TCEQ defines an MSD as an official state designation given to property within a municipality or its extraterritorial jurisdiction that certifies that designated groundwater at the property is not used as potable water, and is prohibited from future use as potable water because that groundwater is contaminated in excess of the applicable potable-water protective concentration level. The prohibition must be in the form of a city ordinance, or a restrictive covenant that is enforceable by the city and filed in the property records. The MSD property can be a single property, multi-property, or a portion of property. MSWLF

Voluntary Cleanup Program Sites

VERSION DATE: 1/2010

The Texas Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) provides administrative, technical, and legal incentives to encourage the cleanup of contaminated sites in Texas. Since all non-responsible parties, including future lenders and landowners, receive protection from liability to the state of Texas for cleanup of sites under the VCP, most of the constraints for completing real estate transactions at those sites are eliminated. As a result, many unused or underused properties may be restored to economically productive or community beneficial uses. WMRF
