As you’ve probably heard, the federal government requires that an EIS must be completed before transportation capacity can be added to US 281. Because of this, the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (RMA) has been moving full steam ahead to assess the potential social, economic and environmental impact of improvements along the corridor…but we still need your help!
We need you to share your ideas for how best to improve mobility along the stretch of US 281 from 1604 to Borgfeld Road. Every idea and option, whether previously proposed or brand new, is open for discussion. Please click on the “Submit Comments” button on any page of this web site to let us know what you think!
