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.

The details

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.

The reconstruction work is part of a larger plan to widen the I-35 bridge over Hwy. 123. All traffic is running on the newly constructed northbound bridge while crews continue to work on the southbound side. A bridge deck was recently poured, and work continues on the retaining walls. The bridge railing and paving is yet to be completed, Lujan said.

Crews are also working on a new entrance ramp south of Hwy. 80 and Hopkins Street.
