South Laredo residents are one step closer to having traffic relief.
The Texas Department Of Public Transportation and the City Of Laredo held a public hearing about opening some new streets.
They say their plan is to connect Avenida Los Presidentes, Lomas Del Sur Boulevard and Cielito Lindo Avenue to Loop 20 for better traffic flow.
Roberto Gonzalez Jr\TXDOT DESIGN ENGINEER "Our goal is to hopefully cut down travel time for people. Instead of having US 83 and Ejido, which contend to be congested at peak hours of traffic. It is going to give them an alternative route to chose from to travel to and from North and South Laredo and hopefully save people time and get them there safely as well."
If approved construction is expected to start in the Fall. The project will be federally funded.
