I-10 West from Ramsgate to Loop 1604
This project will add one to two main lanes in each
direction. In addition, the existing westbound DeZavala exit ramp
will be permanently closed and the existing Woodstone exit, which
will be expanded to two lanes, will be resigned as the DeZavala exit. In the same area, the existing westbound entrance
ramp from Huebner Oaks will also be permanently closed; traffic will continue along the
access road to the existing entrance ramp before DeZavala.
Additionally, a new eastbound to westbound turnaround will be
added at UTSA Blvd.
project will help:
This section of I-10 experiences recurring
congestion daily due to insufficient capacity and bottlenecks caused by
obsolete ramp arrangements. The additional main lanes
will increase the capacity of the freeway. Most notably, the
new eastbound lanes at the entrance from Loop 1604 will
eliminate the bottleneck caused by large volumes of merging traffic
removing the current De Zavala exit and the preceding entrance ramp at
both of which are considered redundant given the presence of the other
entrance and exit ramps along that stretch, the dangerous and
congestion-inducing weaving that takes place on the
mainlanes between those two ramps will be eliminated, thus
traffic flow and safety in that area. That change will also
weaving and associated congestion on the westbound access road at the
top of the hill approaching De Zavala.
Construction started in early 2012 and is scheduled to be

This project was delayed about eight months due to a
contractor default. Work resumed in April 2013.
