Loop 375 Border Highway West Extension


The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is dedicated to improving regional mobility and safety as well as providing improved connectivity on Loop 375. The proposed project was originally federally funded and began in September 2007. TxDOT has restarted the planning studies with state funds.

Current Conditions

Regional mobility studies identified the need for an alternate route to provide congestion relief in the region. One of the key solutions that will help regional mobility is the completion of Loop 375.

The proposed Loop 375 Border Highway West Extension Project will provide:

  • Better connectivity around the city
  • Additional infrastructure to accommodate future growth
  • Congestion relief
  • Improved access to the university, downtown, and medical centers
  • Better incident management and a safer roadway

Proposed Improvements

The proposed Loop 375 Border Highway West Extension Project begins at US 54 and extends to Racetrack Drive near Doniphan Road. Proposed improvements include construction of a new four-lane controlled access toll facility that connects Loop 375 to US 85.

All existing non-tolled lanes would remain non-tolled; only newly-constructed lanes would be tolled.
