Opinions Voiced on 29th Street Changes

Residents along 29th Street voiced their opinions on the latest plans for road construction.

At a public hearing, city officials again presented plans for additional turn lanes at the 29th and Villa Maria intersection, as well as a light at Blinn College entrance along 29th.

Residents who live along Skrivanek, Esther and Garden Streets spoke for and against the changes, especially noting the potential for some higher traffic levels with the changes.

Presently, those residents say drivers speed through their neighborhood on route to Blinn.
