I-35 Waco Project 4A -
Waco Access Roads

Project ID (CSJ):  0015-01-225


Project 4A is widening I-35 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes for approximately 1.1 miles through Waco, from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to Business 77 (BU77):

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 1.1 miles of I-35 from four lanes to six lanes (three lanes in each direction).
  • Rebuilding access roads from Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. to BU77 and making them continuous.
  • Construction Cost Estimate:
    $17 million
  • Construction Completion: estimated Fall 2017
