The additional lane would create a total of three main lanes in each direction, and the roadway would be widened to accommodate the new capacity. Currently, the freeway shrinks to two lanes in each direction north of Hondo Pass.
Another aspect of the proposed project is to reverse the location of the off- and on-ramps which will create "X" configurations as opposed to the current diamond setup.
