Loop 360 has severe and increasing traffic congestion, causing both mobility and safety concerns. The Loop 360 program will upgrade multiple intersections along the roadway. The Loop 360 at Westlake Drive intersection improvements include removing the traffic signals on the Loop 360 mainlanes at Westlake Drive and Cedar Street, and adding an underpass (where the mainlanes go under the cross streets) at both intersections. The project also includes adding non-signalized U-turns in both directions at Westlake Drive, as well as adding a shared-use path and sidewalks to improve bicycle and pedestrian accommodations and connections in the project area.
TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The workshop will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (512) 832-7192 at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
