Description:

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Laredo District is conducting a feasibility study on the proposed Outer Loop Project in Webb County from the Interstate Highway 35 (I-35)/State Highway (SH) 255 (Camino Colombia Road) interchange to the vicinity of the proposed fifth bridge crossing, near Rio Bravo, Texas in Webb County.

The Outer Loop aims to provide additional capacity and accommodate future growth in Laredo by providing a new high-capacity connection along the east side of Laredo. The proposed Outer Loop will extend approximately 45 miles, from the I-35/SH 255 interchange to the vicinity of the proposed fifth bridge crossing, near Rio Bravo. The ultimate cross section considered for this roadway will be a six-lane freeway (three lanes in each direction) with one-way two-lane frontage roads on each side.

Special Accommodation:

TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. If you have special communication or accommodation needs, or have a 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 (956) 712-7735 at least two (2) working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
