Relief Route Workshop

Join us for a public Open House to share information and receive community input about the Fredericksburg Relief Route Study.  The potential relief route would relieve traffic and improve mobility in downtown Fredericksburg by giving people the option to travel around, rather than directly through, the city.  The Fredericksburg Relief Route Study is overseen by the Gillespie County Relief Route Task Force.  Support for the Study is provided by the City of Fredericksburg, Gillespie County, and the Texas Department of Transportation.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the Fredericksburg Relief Route Study and latest developments, view the current route options, and provide input.  You will see how public input, along with engineering criteria and environmental considerations, have been used to reduce the number of route options to five (the “Primary Route Options”).  A historian will also be available to discuss the upcoming historic resources survey.  The goal of the Study is to identify a locally preferred option driven by community input.  All interested parties are encouraged to attend the Open House and provide feedback.

TIME: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Come and go at your convenience.)
