Interstate 10 through San Antonio is under major construction on the portion from down town (I-10/I-35 intersection) through the Loop 410 intersection. Narrow shifting lanes and lane closures both ways through the week. Somewhat better on weekends unless a major project is scheduled. Lots of congestion and rage for many months. My personal recommendations:

From IH-37 northbound, stay on 281 to loop 1604 west to intersect IH-10 west. Going the other way (south), take either loop 1604 east or loop 410 east to 281 south. It becomes IH-37.

Coming from the east on IH-10, take loop 410 to IH-10 West. Loop 410 also has some construction, but a lot less. When approaching IH-10, get into the right lane early. It backs up during busy times. Alternatively, take 1604 all the way around to 10. Two lane part of the way. As with most cities, all of these routes will be very busy during rush hours. Bill

October of 04 while staying at Alamo Fiesta in Boerne, we took the truck down to Flying J east of San Antonio and while there was not much construcion going on, getting used to the off ramps and the high roads and low roads both going to the same place was a little confusing expecially at 65 or so.

I don't have an atas handy but there is a good road that goes through the hill country (through Fredricksburg and Austin)that cuts out San Antonio altogether.

It's hwy 290. An option but it takes you through south Austin which is a pain. I travel those secondary roads most of the time unless trying to make miles to keep a schedule. IH_10 is not a bad route overall. But that segment in SA gets dicey when busy and there are ways around it. FWIW. Bill

Unfortunately, there's no easy, painless way to get from (let's say) Houston to Junction, TX. Austin has not built any loop roads around the city because (how can I say this politely) the Austin area citizenry is perhaps more environmentally sensitive than most of the rest of Texas.

If we're leaving Houston going to Fredericksburg, we'll take US290W to TX21S to TX71W at Bastrop through Austin to US290 at Oak Hill, then follow US290 to Fredericksburg.

If, on the other hand, we're leaving Houston going to Boerne, we'll take I10W to Loop 1604N (Anderson Loop) over the north side of San Antonio to I10W at the northwest side of San Antonio. We have taken TX46 from Seguin to New Braunfels to Boerne to get around San Antonio years ago, but development has overtaken it - too much traffic now.

If I were coming from the Dallas/Fort Worth area down to Austin or San Antonio, I would be really tempted to take US281S instead of I35S. It's a nice road through some beautiful country.
