TxDOT is committed to improving mobility and increasing safety for motorists using the heavily traveled I-10 corridor on San Antonio’s east side.
Multiple improvement projects are currently planned or under construction along overpasses and interchanges. Converting the frontage roads from two-way to one-way access with turnarounds at cross street intersections is also part of the larger plan to improve the entire I-10 corridor between San Antonio and Houston.
Current and proposed I-10 East projects will address the following issues:
I-10 East Construction Projects
In 2016, TxDOT began reconstructing I-10 East from I-410 to the Bexar County line under five separate but overlapping projects. They include:
The improvements along this section of I-10 will enhance safety and mobility and reduce congestion by:
Construction Impacts on Traffic
Throughout construction of these improvements, drivers will experience temporary traffic shifts and overnight lane closures on the mainlanes and frontage roads in both directions, as well as temporary daytime and overnight ramp closures. TxDOT will do everything possible to keep two mainlanes open in each direction during peak travel times.
Daytime work is anticipated to take place Mondays through Saturdays, while nighttime work and any necessary lane closures are anticipated to take place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday evenings through Friday mornings. Occasional weekend (Saturday and Sunday) closures for major traffic shifts or bridge construction operations may take place. At times, traffic may be detoured to frontage roads.
