Interstate 10 frontage road project on schedule, marketing continues for Seguin's future

(Seguin) -- Getting on, off and around Interstate 10 here in Seguin is getting easier and easier thanks to frontage roads being constructed along the highway.

Applauding the efforts of TxDot is Josh Schneuker, the executive director of the Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC). Schneuker says construction crews are not wasting anytime in getting the job done.

"TxDot has informed us that the I-10 frontage road project is ahead of schedule. I believe that the completion of the project is expected to be -- should be finished up by this year, summer of 2018," said Schneuker.

Schneuker says the city knows the importance of such roads. He says they are a game changer when it comes to economic development and seeing the community grow.

"Frontage roads really open up properties for development opportunities and a lot of properties now have access to them via the I-10 frontage road that weren't in place before -- make them more marketable to developers, commercial developers," said Schneuker.

Schneuker says the work, however, to bring new business to Seguin has already started.

"So that's one thing we've already taken notice of. We started working with a lot of these prospective brokers to go out there and partner with them on marketing those properties and the opportunities of developing here in Seguin," said Schneuker.

City officials say they realize that much of the construction, at times, was an inconvenience for daily commuters. In the long run, they say it's a sacrifice for Seguin's future.

"People driving through Seguin, people living in Seguin, they see it every day. Our job is to ensure that we are working with these brokers representing the property to get this in front of people that don't have the opportunity to see what's going on here every day. The interest, especially along the I-10 corridor there -- where those new frontage roads is definitely increasing and we're going to continue to really push hard in working hand in hand with our brokerage community -- not only within Seguin, but within the San Antonio region, marketing those properties with the end goal bringing new development and opportunity to the city," said Schneuker.

The SEDC was created in 1994 by voter referendum to create, attract, retain and expand business opportunities for Seguin and its residents.
