Ribbon Cutting Planned for New I-10 Access Road
Project Provides Infrastructure for Development

SEGUIN, Texas – The City of Seguin will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 31 to celebrate the opening of a new access road along Interstate 10. The road provides vital infrastructure to attract development along the interstate.

“This access road is a vital component to the ultimate development and build-out of the mixed-use development project,” Seguin City Manager Doug Faseler said. “This project is anticipated to create a significant positive impact to the City of Seguin with enhanced retail and restaurant offerings and shovel-ready light industrial sites.”

The 1.6 mile westbound access road officially opened on July 18. It connects SH 46 to FM 464 along Interstate 10. The road provides ten driveway points for anticipated development along a large tract of land owned by New Quest Properties.

Representatives from the Seguin Economic Development Corporation, the SEDC board of directors, City of Seguin, New Quest Properties and TxDOT will attend the ribbon cutting ceremony. Interview opportunities will be provided.

The $4.7 million access road project is funded through a partnership between the City of Seguin ($1.25 million), Seguin Economic Development Corporation ($1.25 million) and New Quest Properties ($2.2 million.) The road will provide access to the 545-acre site owned by New Quest Properties. This critical infrastructure is anticipated to create a significant positive impact for the City of Seguin. The frontage road is a vital component to attract retailers, restaurants and development to Seguin.
