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.

Message from TXDOT:

We thank you for your reports of the lane striping conditions in the area of southbound I-35 and Loop 1604. We have heard your concerns and have taken steps to correct the lane striping. Testing has been completed and revealed an alternative option (water blasting) for the existing striping removal. Operations to fix the remaining striping are planned for Sunday night and are expected to be completed by Monday (weather permitting).
