Work at I-35 and Hwy. 123 intersection to continue through 2024

The Texas Department of Transportation will continue construction work changing entrance and exit ramps to I-35 in San Marcos around the Hwy. 123 intersection into 2025, said Antonio Lujan, a public information officer for TxDOT.

In September, crews permanently closed the southbound I-35 exit 204A to Hwy. 123 to begin constructing a new entrance ramp in its place, Lujan said in a statement to Community Impact. All southbound I-35 traffic will continue to use the CM Allen Parkway exit 204B to access Hwy. 123.
