[ARCHIVED] FM 1103 Expansion Project

TxDOT began construction on the FM 1103 expansion project, from IH 35 to Rodeo Way on November 1, 2022.  This is the first phase of a two-phase transportation project that will reconstruct and expand FM 1103, from IH 35 to FM 78.  The first phase of this expansion will take the roadway from a two-lane roadway to a five-lane thoroughfare while adding 4 new traffic control signals to enhance accessibility for the travelling public.  The construction cost for this project is $40 Million and is a combination of Federal Funds, State Funds, City of Cibolo Funds, and City of Schertz Funds.  

The citizens of Cibolo voted in support of the issuance of $7 Million in bonds for the repair of this roadway as part of the 2014 General Obligation Bonds election.  TxDOT quickly saw the need to fix the entire roadway and decided it was best to pool funds to improve the entire roadway.

"The City of Cibolo has been anticipating the start of this project," stated Mayor Stosh Boyle.  "Our Residents have been in support of this project since 2014, and it is exciting to finally see movement to improved transportation for our residents, business owners, and visitors."

Construction started on November 1st, with contractor Hunter Industries, LTD., of San Marcos, Texas setting traffic control barriers along the areas of the roadway.  There will be alternating lane closures between the hours of 9:00 PM and 5:00 AM over the next few weeks as crews begin to mobilize and begin the replacement of bridge culverts within the Schertz portion of the project.  Additionally, the contractor will begin construction of the drill shafts for the foundations supporting the sound barrier walls that will be constructed as part of the project.  This work will be along the entire length of the project.

"TxDOT continues to be a valuable partner as the City of Cibolo continues to prioritize our infrastructure in future planning," stated City Manager Wayne Reed.  "Our staff and elected officials have worked long and hard on this project, and their efforts will make a lasting impact on the future of transportation in Cibolo."

The total project duration is expected to take 46 months, with anticipated completion in 2026.  TxDOT is overseeing this project and any questions or concerns can be sent to Jennifer Serold at Jennifer.Serold@txdot.gov.
