Updated schematics were released October 15th, 2020 and some details
have changed from the preliminary plans. This page has been updated to
reflect the current (and likely final) plans. As always, some details
may change prior to construction. This page will be updated when the
construction plans are released.
US 90 West from Old
Hwy 90 to the Medina County Line
Advanced planning (see timeline below.)
project will ultimately upgrade US 90 from Loop 1604 to west of SH 211
from a four lane divided
highway to a six lane freeway with access roads. It will also build the
remainder of the flyovers at the Loop 1604 interchange, revise the SH
211 interchange, widen US 90 between Loop 410 and Loop 1604 to eight
lanes (six mainlanes plus an auxiliary lane), and make various
operational improvements along the
remainder of the corridor east of Loop 1604. A separate project will
construct the remaining flyovers at the Loop 410 interchange.
of the scale of this project and funding availability, it will be
broken into multiple phases. The first phase will include most
of the widening and improvements between SH 211 and Hunt Lane
the westbound US 90 to northbound Loop 1604 flyover. A preliminary
project will construct a westbound to eastbound turnaround at
project is a continuation to several improvements that
made to a portion of this corridor recently.
project will help
Several new large subdivisions have been constructed along US
90 west of Loop 1604 in the past decade with several more planned or
underway. As a
result, traffic volumes along that stretch of US 90 have increased more
than 70% over the past decade. Additionally, growth along the Potranco
Road corridor just to the north is likely contributing to traffic in
the US 90 corridor. Upgrading
this segment to a freeway will allow it to efficiently and
safely handle current and expected traffic. Completing the Loop 1604
interchange will accommodate current and future traffic there.
remaining upgrades will improve the operation of the Military Dr.
interchange and facilitate the future flyovers in the Loop 410
Phase 1 is funded and it is expected
construction could start in 2025. Future phases are
currently unfunded and therefore have no timeline.
Below are the detailed schematics for Phase 1 and the ultimate build-out of this
project from TxDOT with my own annotations added to help clarify and
explain the various elements. Click on an image below
