The city of San Antonio recently wrapped up a 2017 bond-funded project near the Hidden Forest neighborhood, having applied $5.13 million in improvements to Bitters Road between Blanco Road and Savannah Drive.

District 9 City Council Member John Courage used his social media April 14 to alert constituents about the completion of the project, which originated in October 2020.



According to the city, the project resulted in surface, drainage and operational improvements to the Bitters/Blanco intersection plus new sidewalks on the north side of Bitters; left-turn lanes on Bitters at Partridge Trail, Silverhorn Drive, and Savannah Pass; and a right-turn lane from Bitters onto northbound Blanco.
