I-35 Waco Project 4 -

Project ID (CSJ):  0015-01-171


Project Four will widen I-35 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes for approximately 7.9 miles through Waco, from South Loop 340 to North Loop 340 (this section will probably be completed in a series of smaller projects as funding becomes available):

Need & Purpose
  • Need:  Increased truck traffic along the I-35 corridor coupled with regional population growth in Texas has created travel demand that exceeds its current capacity. The existing I-35 facility through Central Texas is an essential element of the local and regional transportation system.
  • Purpose: 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.
End Result
This project will address congestion while improving safety at this I-35 location by:
  • Widening 7.9 miles of I-35 from four lanes to six lanes (three lanes in each direction).
  • Updated access roads
  • Construction Cost Estimate:
    $390 million
  • Construction start date -
    To be determined
