SALOCALLOWDOWN.COM “Other than that, I love it. I take it daily to and from work. It has cut 15 minutes per direction off of my commute,” said Shawn Gordon. “I’ll admit 45 is a tad slow, but I pull out of our apartment directly onto Wurzbach Parkway and people are treating it like the Daytona 500,” Damon Pena said. TxDOT was reviewing parkway speeds earlier this fall. In late October, the Texas Transportation Commission approved raising the speed limit from 45 mph to 60 mph from Blanco to Wetmore Road. The signs were changed the first week of November. Donat said, though, drivers should not treat the parkway like a freeway. “It’s best for short trips,” he added. He also urged drivers to use common sense. “The speed limit is also defined by design of the road. There are curves, curbs and sidewalks,” he said. “Just be safe and follow the law.”

WURZBACH continues from pg. 10 has arisen in the last 30 years. “(TxDOT is) looking to see ... if there are other ways to improve/enhance traffic in the general area,” he added. People who traverse the area say pros outnumber cons with Wurzbach Parkway. “I drive from Jones Maltsberger Road to Northwest Military Highway three times a week. I carpool to and from Great Hearts Northern Oaks (charter school) and the parkway is a carpool game changer,” said Carisa Lopez Heiss. “(Wurzbach Parkway) now connects my life — work, school and home. I have not driven on 410 or 35 since it opened,” Michele Autenrieth Brown said. “It’s making my drive across town to visit my mom so much easier,” Melanie Mendez-Gonzales added. A particular point of contention for some motorists on Wurzbach Parkway are the varying speed limits. Some feel they are too slow, others reportedly are going much faster.
