During the Environmental Assessment phase of the I-10 widening project, the “College Drive Flyover” component was pulled from the overall project and advanced separately on its own. Being a segment of “independent utility,” meaning that is construction could occur separately from the rest of the project, the Flyover was let for final design and construction through a separate contract. This allowed the Flyover project, providing dedicated exit lanes from westbound I-10 and I-12 to College Drive, to begin in advance of the remainder of I-10 improvements. When complete, the flyover improvements will eliminate the traffic weaving and conflicts which presently occur on westbound I-10 approaching College Drive.
Construction of the flyover project is underway. Persons interested in receiving email notifications of progress and infrequent impacts to I-10 / I-12 mainline travel lanes should sign up for the MyDOTD notification service.
