Since last July, the FM 1103 project has been at a standstill as the Texas Department of Transportation works through conflicts with utilities and telecommunication lines.

TxDOT Public Information Officer Tanya Brown said in an email the organization is working to finalize plans for construction, with work expected to resume in the fall.

What residents should know

Brown said the plan is undergoing revisions, including sound wall utility conflict protections, which enable installed utilities to remain in place and continue service. The final revisions for this plan are expected to be completed this summer.

Following the approval of a new set of plans, the contractor will submit an updated construction schedule, with work expected to resume in the fall.

The FM 1103 project was scheduled to be a two-phase project with the section from I-35 to Rodeo Way completed in 2026.

With the delays, Brown said the new design will include all phases, and the new construction timeline will be submitted by the contractor.

About the project

The full project will include the expansion of FM 1103 from a two-lane road to a four-lane road with bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

The first phase from I-35 to Rodeo Way broke ground in November 2022. Cibolo City Council on May 28 authorized the city manager to sign an advance funding agreement in the amount of $3.4 million for the second phase of the project, from Rodeo Way to FM 78.

Updates to the estimated start date and completion time for the project will be available following the submission of the new timeline from the contractor.
