Project Information


First Section from I-35E to I-45 (Corridor B)
This section began development following approval of the Corridor/Feasibility Study in 2014.  An Environmental Assessment and project schematics are currently being developed for construction of Phases 1 and 2 between I-35E and I-45.  Approval of an Environmental Assessment for Phases 1 and 2 (the entire frontage road system) will allow TxDOT to purchase and preserve the entire right-of-way for this section for the ultimate facility.  Once approved, this section will be constructed in phases as funding becomes available.  Phase 1 (one side of the frontage road system) would be constructed first.      

The first public meeting for this section was held on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at the Lancaster Elementary School.  The Public Meeting Summary Report is available for review.  The exhibits shown at this public meeting are also available on the Public Involvement page.

Following the Public Meeting, the project team has continued to refine the project schematics to address concerns presented by the public and local officials.  These revisions are ongoing and an updated set of project schematics will be available on this website (anticipated Summer 2015).       

As TxDOT moves forward with the first section of Loop 9 from I-35E to I-45, check back here for updates on the development of the schematic design and Environmental Assessment (EA). Updates on this study and future public involvement activities will be provided on the website as they become available.
