Designate "No Thru Trucks" on Schoenthal Rd.

Scott Haag, Comal County Commissioner, Pct. 2

We, the constituents of Comal County, respectfully request the designation of Schoenthal Rd. North as a "No Thru Truck" zone in order to safeguard our community from the influx of quarry trucks, and other large commercial vehicles, due to the existing CEMEX quarry located off Krueger Canyon and the Vulcan site that will be constructed at the intersection of FM 3009 & Hwy. 46.

Schoenthal Rd. North is used by our community as the pass through road to travel between New Braunfels and Garden Ridge, and into San Antonio via I-35. The road, and the surrounding areas on 1863 & 3009, is almost completely comprised of residential dwellings. Schoenthal North is a 2 lane, unlit road, without shoulders. It is not designed to handle heavy commercial traffic and our safety will be compromised if we allow an influx of commercial trucks to share the road with us. In the winter our school buses travel in the dark to pick up children before school and drop them off after. Sharing the road with large commercial vehicles increases the driving hazard the bus drivers, teen drivers, and older drivers face at any time of day. We believe that is in the best interest of the families that reside in Garden Ridge, on Schoenthal Rd., and along FM 1863 that we have a "safe" road that we can use as we commute between Garden Ridge and New Braunfels.   

Granting a "No Thru Truck" zone on Schoenthal Rd. North will limit large commercial vehicles from using the road unless the operator of the vehicle is commuting to a property on Schoenthal and will help limit the driving hazards we face along the road.  It will also reduce taxpayer burden due to costly road repairs incurred by high volume commercial truck traffic. The designation should have very little impact on the quarries, or any commercial business, as they still have a large public roadway, FM 3009, to use to commute between I-35, Garden Ridge, and New Braunfels.

We look forward to your reply.
