|Merge Lanes add a fifth lane in each direction on I-10.|
Currently, I-10 is reduced to three lanes in each direction at McRae, creating severe bottleneck traffic conditions during rush hour when travelling east. And morning commuters traveling westward from the east side also encounter heavy congestion between Lee Trevino and Hawkins Boulevard.
The Texas Department of Transportation is expanding capacity without widening the freeway by using striping to reduce current lanes by a foot each and using the current inner shoulder as a main lane. The outside shoulder will remain.
|Most of the inner shoulder will be used for a new main lane.|
