Main Street extension and Spur 98 high bridge nearing completion.
The Main Street Extension Project is nearing completion, and barricades will be lifted opening the East/West corridor to traffic on March 27, 2006. The $1.8 million project, funded by the City of Kerrville using sales tax proceeds as authorized by the Economic Improvement Corporation, consisted of the extension of the Main Street from Westminster East to Legion Drive and included construction of sidewalks, sanitary sewer, and a water main. The new East/West corridor offers drivers an alternate route when traveling between Highway 16 and Loop 534 and is expected to relieve some congestion on Singing Wind Drive.
The Spur 98/Thompson Drive high water bridge over the Guadalupe River is another East/West mobility project in the City. The much needed bridge is funded and maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation and scheduled to be open this summer. The bridge begins at the intersection of Arcadia Loop/Junction Highway and goes south over the river and then east towards the State Hospital and is expected to relieve congestion on the portions of Junction Highway that are between Arcadia Loop and Highway 16.
