TxDOT is holding a virtual public hearing to discuss improvements to I-35 from SE Inner Loop to RM 1431 (southbound). 


The following improvements are proposed:

  • Remove Westinghouse Road bridge and construct a new I-35 bridge over Westinghouse Road
  • Construct westbound to southbound continuous flow intersection at Westinghouse Road
  • Improve intersection at I-35 and SE Inner Loop
  • Improve existing southbound I-35 frontage road from north of SE Inner Loop to RM 1431
  • Reverse entrance/exit ramps along the southbound I-35 frontage road between SE Inner Loop and RM 1431

The proposed project would require the acquisition of right of way.
