Antonio Area Freeway System
Interstate 10 East (Josť Lopez Freeway)
|This page last updated November 15, 2018
||This page covers Interstate 10 south and east of
downtown San Antonio from I-35 to Graytown Rd. Two miles of
I-10 is concurrent (multiplexed) with I-35 north of this segment; see
the I-35 South
page for details on that segment. Interstate 10 then
continues northwest of downtown; see the I-10 West page for
Length: 11 miles
serves San Antonio's Eastside neighborhoods as well as industrial areas
of downtown and near Loop 410. Residential areas line most of
between I-37 and Loop 410; commercial and industrial uses front the
outside Loop 410 and between I-35 and I-37. The corridor
provides access to
the AT&T Center and Freeman Coliseum, the San Antonio Missions
National Park, and the suburban city of Kirby. New
residential areas are
sprouting-up between I-10 and FM 78 outside of Loop 410, especially
Foster Rd. While the I-10 corridor east of Foster Rd. is
heavy residential and commercial development exists just a few miles
I-10 along FM 78 and extending beyond Loop 1604. Therefore,
this route has
become a favorite commuter route for motorists in the FM 78 corridor
avoid the heavy traffic on I-35.
