Project 3C widened I-35 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes for approximately 3.4 miles from North Loop 363 to South Loop 340 in Hewitt/Robinson.
Increased truck traffic along the I-35 corridor coupled with regional population growth in Texas created travel demand that exceeded its capacity. The existing I-35 facility through Central Texas is an essential element of the local and regional transportation system.
The purpose of the project is to meet local and regional travel demands by increasing capacity; upgrading the transportation infrastructure to meet current FHWA and TxDOT design standards for interstates, bridges, and frontage roads; thereby improving the safety of travelers along I-35.
This project addressed congestion while improving safety at this I-35 location by:
