The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority leadership stressed again and again Thursday its pledge to move forward with construction of a long-planned toll project on Loop 1604, despite a recent political shakeup that put Bexar County in charge of the agency's operations.
The declaration came at the mobility authority's first public board meeting since Commissioners Court voted to take over the RMA's staff operations last month, in what was called a cost-saving move. The move came weeks before the agency planned to start the search for a contractor to tackle the 1604 toll project, which could be under construction by December 2013 if things go according to plan.
