Helping TxDOT Reduce Congestion In San Antonio


ATG is helping TxDOT address increasing congestion in northeast San Antonio by improving safety and operations on Loop 1604.

San Antonio is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. In turn, traffic congestion and accidents increase. Keeping traffic moving safely ahead of growth is the challenge ATG is working with TxDOT to reduce congestion along Loop 1604 in Northeast San Antonio.

This project expands the freeway and modifies ramp access to improve motorist’s ability to get to their destinations safely and efficiently. ATG addressed the challenge of maintaining local access near a railroad line while improving freeway operations by evaluating multiple alternatives. Working with the community, ATG created 3D visualizations of proposed modifications to demonstrate to Bexar County citizens how the proposed changes could improve traffic conditions on Loop 1604.

This iterative process facilitated the selection of solutions that meet the needs of the community while ensuring safe traffic operations and improved traffic flows. ATG also developed signal, illumination, and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) designs with state-of-the-art software to enhance these improvements.
