People who live in the South Bexar County subdivision of Highland Oaks and others will be getting improvements made to their streets. Residents have been complaining for years that their roads are not paved, leading to delays for emergency responders and lack of mail service and school buses.

Bexar County Public Works Director Renee Green took a look at the roads and presented her findings to Commissioners Court on Tuesday.

“We came up with 103 streets in 31 subdivisions, split about halfway between paved and unpaved,” said Green. “Two of those subdivisions did have both unpaved and paved streets in there.”

Her long-term plan is to spend nearly $30 million over 10 to 15 years to pave dirt roads and repair others beginning in the upcoming fiscal year.
