TxDOT is proposing improvements to I-35W from Seminary Drive to FM 3391/East Renfro Street, I-20 from Hemphill Street to Campus Drive and SH 174 from I-35W to Northwest Newton Drive in Tarrant and Johnson counties.

A virtual public meeting that will include prerecorded presentations will be available at 6 p.m. April 27 on the TxDOT website. The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. Comments will be open until May 12.

The proposed project is approximately 10 miles long. The purpose of the I-35W Segment 1 corridor study is to evaluate the reconstruction and widening of the existing I-35W corridor, to consider potential express lanes and to evaluate improvements to the frontage roads, ramps and cross streets including the I-35W/I-20 and I-35W/SH 174 interchanges.

TxDOT evaluated the section of I-35W from I-20 to East Renfro Street and is proposing to reconstruct and widen the main lanes with five to six 12-foot main lanes in each direction. Proposed frontage roads would be reconstructed to include two to three 12-foot lanes and 10-foot shared-use paths in each direction. TxDOT is also evaluating improvements along I-20 which have not yet been identified.
