Purpose, convened two meetings with a Community Advisory Group, held a

of Public Scoping meetings. Based on public input and studies conducted 
to date, FHWA, TxDOT and Alamo RMA now propose to include an additional 
segment from FM 1957 to U.S. 90 in the EIS so that the limits of the 
proposed improvements would be from U.S. 90 to IH 35 North, a total 
distance of approximately 37 miles. The additional segment between FM 
1957 and U.S. 90 is described in the San Antonio-Bexar County 
Metropolitan Planning Organization's Mobility 2035 Plan (adopted 
December 7, 2009) as added capacity improvements consisting of 
expanding the existing facility to a four lane expressway with four 
toll mainlanes and four non-toll outer lanes. The need for improvements 
within the additional segment relate to compromised safety, decreased 
mobility, and operational deficiencies attributed to substantial growth 
in traffic. The purpose of adding the proposed segment is to address 
these needs by upgrading the existing roadway to current design 
standards to improve safety, enhance mobility and improve operational 
efficiency.
    Anticipated Federal permits, pending selection of alternatives and 
field surveys may include, but are not limited to, the following: 
Section 401/404 (Clean Water Act), and Section 7 (Endangered Species
