US 281 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
281 North Improvement Project
The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority took the lead preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for US 281 in 2009 and spent the next five years meeting with stakeholders from neighborhoods, businesses and organizations in the area and with transportation engineers to determine how best to improve US 281.
At the end of that study, a preferred alternative design emerged that would improve 8 miles of US 281, from Loop 1604 to Borgfeld Drive. The proposed 281 North Improvement Project would double the number of lanes and add additional connector ramps at the US 281 and Loop 1604 intersection. This project will significantly reduce the amount of traffic congestion and meet the needs of this growing community for the next 30 years.
The Environmental Impact Statement will be submitted to the Federal Highway Administration by the end of the summer. As we wait for final approval on this project, we invite you to learn more about the proposed design by viewing the interactive map in the “What’s New” section of this website, or by going to AlamoRMA.org.
