TxDOT has environmentally cleared the I-820 East Loop to ultimately reconstruct I-820 from SH 121/183 to Randol Mill Road, and SH 121 from Handley Ederville Road to the south interchange with I-820.
As part of the Texas Clear Lanes initiative, TxDOT secured congestion relief funding for a segment of the I-820 East Loop from SH 121/183 to Randol Mill Road. This interim four-mile project will add one mainlane each direction, replace bridges for SH 10 and the Trinity River, and construct direct connect ramps to/from SH 121. Construction began in August 2018 on this $174 million project. It is estimated for substantial completion in 2023.
