I-35 at Posey Road

Overview:

This project consists of replacing the existing interchange configuration with a new I-35 mainlane bridge over an at-grade reconstructed Posey Road, constructing new approaches, making intersection improvements, adding U-turns, performing ramp reversals, and converting two-way frontage roads to one-way. Currently, the I-35 mainlanes go under Posey Road. The new configuration would have the I-35 mainlanes going over Posey Road.
