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 as a design-build project. Being a “segment of independent utility,” meaning that its 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, which will provide dedicated exit lanes from westbound I-10 and I-12 to College Drive, to advance in an expedited fashion. When complete, the College Flyover improvements will eliminate the traffic weaving and conflicts which presently occur on westbound I-10 and I-12 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. The College Flyover has its own official project website at collegeflyover.com where additional information is provided.
