I-35 Conrads-Kohlenberg Road

Project ID (CSJ):  0016-04-104

Overview:

With the growth of New Braunfels, particularly in the northern commercial and industrial part of town, an immediate need to relieve congestion at the intersection of FM 306 and I-35 has arisen. This project addresses the congestion by reconfiguring ramps that move truck traffic past FM 306 before exiting I-35.

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 reduce traffic congestion and improve safety by.
  • Reconfiguring exit and entrance ramps to provide a northbound exit ramp immediately after FM 306 and a southbound exit ramp before FM 306
  • Building additional turn-lanes
Funding
  • Construction Cost estimate:
    $5.02 million
Schedule
  • Construction begins winter 2014 and is expected to be complete in one year
