Bexar County is home to 10 of the top 100 most-congested roadway segments in Texas, according to a study released by the Texas Department of Transportation.
The stretch of highway that provides the biggest bottleneck in the San Antonio area is located along Interstate 35 from Loop 1604 to FM 3009. Commuters who drive up and down this section of highway are delayed 637,660 hours annually.
This delay alone costs drivers $22.46 million in lost time and wasted fuel.
But it could be worse. More than half of all of Texas’ congested highways are concentrated in the Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas.
