Roads most severely impacted by the exploration, development, or production of oil and natural gas within the Eagle Ford shale region have been identified by the Wilson County Commissioners Court. At a March 3 special meeting, the commissioners approved a list of projects in order of priority, as part of their application for Texas Department of Transportation grant funds under Senate Bill 1747.

According to Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek following the meeting, the top 10 priorities on the list are:

1. C.R. 215 (from C.R. 218 to F.M. 2505 at the Wilson-Atascosa county line).

2. C.R. 201

3. C.R. 217

4. C.R. 417

5. C.R. 488

6. C.R. 489

7. C.R. 216

8. C.R. 463

9. C.R. 207

10. C.R. 401 (from U.S. 87 W to F.M. 1922).

The impact of Eagle Ford traffic on the county’s roadways is apparent to Wilson County Pct. 2 Commissioner Paul Pfeil, who has been conducting traffic counts of affected roads in his precinct. During one 24-hour period in February, he said C.R. 205 -- which runs parallel to the San Antonio River off F.M. 541 west of Poth -- had 740 vehicles. C.R. 205, while not in the top 10, also appears on the list.

Another similar count of C.R. 201 -- which runs parallel to U.S. 181 off F.M. 541 west of Poth -- logged 550 vehicles.

Pfeil said a future count is planned for C.R. 247, where a planned saltwater disposal well will bring an estimated 400 new trucks per day.

Another area of concern, Pfeil said, is C.R. 401, where a company has applied for a permit to establish a truck staging area on a 30-acre property.

Glad to see 417 on there. I wish the DPS could preclude trucks from pulling over onto the side of the road on 87 in that area. It blinds drivers going from 417 to 87 from oncoming traffic. Incredibly hazardous. Thankful for ... More ›
