San Antonio Area Freeway System
PROJECT INFO: I-10 from Ramsgate to Loop 1604

This page last updated May 3, 2013

Project locationLocation: I-10 West from Ramsgate to Loop 1604

Description: 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.

How this 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 addition of new eastbound lanes at the entrance from Loop 1604 will eliminate the bottleneck caused by large volumes of merging traffic there.  By removing the current De Zavala exit and the preceding entrance ramp at Huebner Oaks, 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 substantially improving traffic flow and safety in that area.  That change will also eliminate 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 is scheduled to be completed in mid 2015.  Click here for the latest status report on this project.

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