Bills in the Texas Legislature—House Bill 2795 and Senate Bill 1071—seek to build a nontolled connector between I-35 and SH 130 near New Braunfels.

New Braunfels City Council unanimously passed a resolution April 10 calling for such a connector to relieve traffic on East Hwy. 46, FM 725 and FM 1044 between New Braunfels and Seguin.

If passed, the bill would secure funding for such a road. SH 130 connects to I-10 near Seguin along a tollway to 183 South.

The city of Seguin and Comal County Commissioners Court have also filed resolutions in favor.
