PROJECT INFO: I-10 from Ramsgate to Loop 1604

This page last updated April 17, 2016

Project locationThis project is complete

I-10 West from Ramsgate to Loop 1604

Description: This project added one to two main lanes in each direction.  In addition, the existing westbound DeZavala exit ramp was permanently closed and the existing Woodstone exit, which was expanded to two lanes, was resigned as the DeZavala exit.  In the same area, the existing westbound entrance ramp from Huebner Oaks was also permanently closed; traffic now continues along the access road to the existing entrance ramp before DeZavala.  Additionally, a new eastbound to westbound turnaround was added at UTSA Blvd.

How this project will help: This section of I-10 experienced recurring congestion daily due to insufficient capacity and bottlenecks caused by obsolete ramp arrangements.  The additional main lanes increased the capacity of the freeway.  Most notably, the addition of new eastbound lanes at the entrance from Loop 1604 eliminated the bottleneck caused by large volumes of merging traffic there.  By removing the former De Zavala exit and the preceding entrance ramp at Huebner Oaks, both of which were considered redundant given the presence of the other entrance and exit ramps along that stretch, the dangerous and congestion-inducing weaving that took place on the mainlanes between those two ramps was eliminated, thus substantially improving traffic flow and safety in that area.  That change also eliminated the weaving and associated congestion on the westbound access road at the top of the hill approaching De Zavala.

Timeline: Construction started in early 2012 and was completed in late 2015.
