Dead Man's Curve

It's been a year since this project has been in the news, but the most recent Google Maps update gives you a nice look at the progress made here.

The last time I drove through there, they'd taken out the TX 310 overpass and were preparing embankments so that US 175 would be able to go over S.M. Wright and connect to the new section over to I-45. It's too bad that the new terminus will just have west-to-north and south-to-east movements, leaving no direct connection to southbound I-45 from US 175 nor a connection from northbound I-45 to US 175. But at least it'll be better than what's been there for decades.

Nice to see this project so far along, soon the 175 project will begin followed by some intense interest in this area. I understand the property buys are already underway so what will this area become? So close to downtown and an easy commute if you work downtown we could see a dramatic change here in the not too distant future.

Depends on where the exits along the US 175 realignment will be placed, as to what will end up there and the resulting access. Unless you are referring more to the eventual finished parkway/boulevard that S.M. Wright will become, which will have much more access possibilities. There hasn't been a whole lot of action or demand along the redeveloped stretch of Bexar Street just north of US 175 up to now, but maybe things will improve economically along the redone corridors.
