“As far as timing, that would all depend on whether or not the MPO actually selects this project as a prioritized project, and I believe it would then, if selected, be programmed for fiscal year 2018 or thereabouts,” Donat said. City leaders say traffic on Northwest Military Highway in just the last few years has gotten more congested, including a rising number of pedestrians and bicyclists. The roadway needs to be renovated to make it safer, they add. “The development north of (Loop) 1604 in the Stone Oak area along the 1604 corridor, including (Interstate 10 West), has increased the amount of traffic that we’re seeing on Northwest Military Highway,” Hill said. “The city recognizes the increased risks and hazards associated with the increased traffic volume on Northwest Military Highway.” The proposal to acquire the funding has been months in the making. “Over the last several months, our staff and Planning and Zoning commissioners have worked diligently in updating the Northwest Military Highway portion of our Town Plan,” said Mayor Robert Werner. “As part of the negotiating process with TxDOT, City Manager Bill Hill and Zoning Chair Mike Janssen have worked with TxDOT to streamline our Town Plan proposal.” He added, “The current STPMM

proposal includes the core components developed through hundreds of hours of citizen interaction, public meetings and assorted hearings, which included participation by hundreds of citizens.” The improvements along Northwest Military from the city’s southern border to Loop 1604 include a continuous lefthand turn lane, bike lanes adjacent to each right lane and sidewalks along each side of the highway, which will be designed to promote greater tree preservation. “These proposals are as consistent as possible with our long-term goal to maintain the rural feel of our community,” the mayor said. “The proposed enhancements to Northwest Military Highway will serve to anchor the visual appeal of our community for the next 40 years, as we attend to citizen traffic safety with a continual left-hand turn lane, long-term tree preservation by installing sidewalks in TxDOT’s 120-foot right of way, and drainage improvements for certain streets intersecting Northwest Military Highway.” The mayor said residents will appreciate the visual impression of the proposed renovations. “Unlike the 100-foot asphalt footprints south of Huebner (Road), the proposed street and bike-lane enhancements call for only about 65 feet of asphalt — this promotes preservation of our community’s rural feel while protecting Shavano Park’s legacy oak trees,” Werner said.

A development boom north of Loop 1604 and Northwest Military Highway in Stone Oak is funneling more traffic into Shavano Park, which at peak hours leads to congestion, officials say.
