The Project components include the design, construction and maintenance of the roadways, which includes the following:

  • I-20 from Forest Hill Drive to Park Springs Boulevard: construction of one additional general-purpose lane, plus four-lane collector-distributors, in each direction; the reconstruction and realignment of existing GPLs, frontage roads, US 287/I-20 interchange, and on- and off-ramps.
  • I-820 from  I-20  to  Brentwood  Stair  Road:  construction of two additional general-purpose lanes, plus one additional frontage road lane, in each direction; the reconstruction and realignment of existing GPLs, frontage roads, I-20/I-820 interchange, SP 303/I-820 interchange, US 180/I-820 interchange, and on- and off-ramps.
  • US 287 from Bishop Street to Sublett Road: construction of one additional general-purpose lane in each direction; the reconstruction and realignment of existing general-purpose lanes, frontage roads, US 287/I-820 interchange, and on- and off-ramps.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

The following objectives have been developed by TxDOT for Southeast Connector:

  • Improve overall mobility, operational efficiency, accessibility, safety, and emergency response within the area by providing additional capacity to meet current and future travel demands.
  • Minimize delays to the traveling public and inconvenience to the surrounding communities while maximizing safety in the corridor during construction.
  • Facilitate long-term congestion management and relief in the corridor by accommodating the movement of people and goods for multiple modes of travel.
  • Improve connectivity within the Project area to adjacent parcels by increasing multi-modal transportation facilities within the Project area.
  • Complete the Project on schedule, on budget and to the highest degree of quality possible.
