TxDOT I-35 Northeast Expansion (NEX) Central Project

This 9.5-mile transportation improvement project, from I-410 North in Bexar County to FM 3009 in Guadalupe County, will have three elevated lanes in both directions, including high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, and will incorporate flyovers to I-410 North and Loop 1604 West. I-35 NEX Central is the first of three expansion projects along a 20-mile stretch of I-35 from just north of AT&T Center Parkway to FM 1103.

The Loop 1604 eastbound entrance ramp located between Lookout Road and Biltmore Lakes will be permanently closed in mid-December (weather permitting). Traffic will access eastbound Loop 1604 using the next available entrance ramp between Biltmore Lakes and IKEA-RBFCU Parkway. This ramp closure is necessary to prepare for construction of the elevated ramp from Loop 1604 to I-35 which will provide direct north and south connections to the I-35 elevated lanes. The closure was environmentally cleared as part of the 2019 TxDOT Environmental Assessment (EA) Re-Evaluation. For questions, please contact the I-35 NEX Central project team at i35nexcentral@txdot.gov or call the project hotline at (726) 800-4809. 

Please see below for details on this week's lane closures (weather permitting):  11/20/2022-11/26/2022 and 11/27/22-12/3/2022
