HAMMETT Staff Writer City Manager Mike Shands says the issue of traffic around Walnut Hwy 81 and Interstate Hwy 35 is noth ing new With several large construc tion projects going up within the next two years this area could become the busiest and most congested in New Braunfels Weve been talking about it for said City Manager Mike Shands who added that Walnut is the main northsouth artery of the city It is a fact that traffic will increase after the new HEB Target and Wal Mart are in place What remains are the ways the city can deal with that increase Theories have ranged from widening Walnut north of 81 to making either Hickory or Sycamore streets oneway traffic in order to handle the traffic increase Shands said that process would be difficult given the heavy res idential area Wejusthave towaitand seeat this he said our hope is that it doesnt become so bad that we have to go in right away and widen He said the portion of Walnut between Hwy 81 and 135 should be able to handle the amount of traffic I predict traffic backing up on Wal turning left into the HEB off Walnut with the northbound traffic coming the other way I see traffic backing said Lt John Wommack of the New Braunfels Police Depart ment One of the busiest intersections in town is at Walnut and 135 Lt Wom mack said state highway statistics showed that intersection as one of the heaviest for accidents although most are minor Work is scheduled to begin in about one year converting frontage roads on 135 to oneway Shands said the state plans to widen the lanes under the 135 overpass Shands said peopleused to turn ing left out of WalMart onto the access toad would have to turn right and either loop back under the interstate or turn right on Walnut and come back around Either way an increase in traffic will be f seen at the intersection They state are going to be work ing with us on the frontage roads and said Shands There is a potential for a greater bottleneck HeraUZoltung photo by

MICHAEL BARTELS Construction of the HEB Super Store Is nearlng completion Call it the Hot Corner The comer of Walnut and Interstate 35 contains a maze of construction projects either planned or already started An a strip shopping center a McDonalds a Target and a WalMart Super Store It all adds up to make Walnut and 135 the future retail capital of New Braunfels quite a contrast to a year ago when none of those projects was even announced and Wal nut Square Shopping Center sat mostly empty Why there and not someplace else I wish I could tell you Id get said Michael Meek executive vicepres ident of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce A lot of it probably has to do with growth on the east side of the highway WalMart has also been so successrul at that intersection and with HEB going in it makes it the number one retail area in the city Then add Target and the new WalMart Super Store and youve got a synergy going on there like nowhere else in The projects are all varying stages The McDonalds is nearing completion and is already hiring workers The HEB and accompanying strip shopping center have a planned Npv 18 opening Target just began demolition at Wal nut Square where it will build its store And the squarefoot WalMart Super Store has not yet begun con struction Meek said the existing WalMart will remain open until the new Super Store is finished then the old WalMart will be torn down and a parking lot built on the site Michael Meek Weinman to appear on TV From staff reports NEW YORK Local resident Anarae Weinman is in New York to appear on a national
