"I just had to drive on the wrong side of the road for a little bit just to try to get a flu shot."Last month TxDOT added a new cement median on Grissom Road near Culebra Road. The agency said it was added to improve safety, but drivers said it has been hazardous."When they first had the median put in, people were driving over the top of it, tearing out the undercarriage of their cars,” Doug Tolbird said.TxDOT said drivers and the city spoke, so it listened."We do work for the people," Josh Donat, TxDOT spokesperson, said.Construction crews recently tore up the newly paved median that only allowed five cars to wait in the turning lane."It was really kind of bogging some traffic down and folks said, ‘Hey lets fix this,’" Donat explained.On Tuesday crews finished the new straight cement barrier. Donat said changing the median will cost an estimated $10,000. He explained the money comes from traditional funding sources, like motor fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees.TxDOT said this redo project is one reason why it is critical for people to attend public input meetings before road projects begin.Donat said the agency will also redo the median at Culebra Road and Selene Drive.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Kawhi Leonard had 24 points and 13 rebounds and the San Antonio Spurs held the Phoenix Suns to season-low production in a 98-84 victory on Monday night.
Phoenix was averaging 106.5 points per game, but was held to season-lows in the first half (34) and total points and committed a season-high 28 turnovers.
Tony Parker had 20 points and eight assists and Danny Green added 18 points on 4-for-9 shooting on 3-pointers for San Antonio, which is off to an 11-3 start.
Markieff Morris had 28 points and Brandon Knight added 18 points for Phoenix.
LaMarcus Aldridge missed his second straight game with a mild sprain of his left ankle, but the Spurs were able to collect their second victory without their major offseason acquisition.
Leonard had seven points, three rebounds and an assist to key a 14-2 run that put San Antonio up 61-43 with 4 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.
A pair of turnovers by Morris on successive possessions resulted a pair of fast-break baskets by Leonard. The forward had a one-handed dunk followed by a layup that led to a technical on Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek, who was upset no foul was called for Morris. Leonard later drove into the lane and kicked the ball out to Green for a 3-pointer and a 59-41 lead.
Leonard finished 11 for 18 from the field for San Antonio, which is unbeaten in seven home games.
