I-35 from US 79 to SH 45 North (northbound)

Overview

Braided ramps were constructed to remove merging conflicts on the I-35 northbound mainlanes between Hesters Crossing and RM 620. The northbound extended entrance/exit lane allows drivers to match travel speeds prior to merging. The northbound and southbound frontage road intersections at I-35 and US 79 were also reconstructed and a third left-turn lane for westbound US 79 was added.
