It seems like Interstate 35 is always under construction, but the $28 million project in Round Rock might make temporary slow-downs worth it.

The Texas Department of Transportation has a three-phased project underway on I-35 in Round Rock, and one of the additions will get rid of nightmare bottlenecks. The “braided ramps” project can be seen driving on the south side of town, and is in the middle of construction.

Drivers merging onto the interstate will drive over those exiting onto the frontage road. The addition aims to eliminate awkward merging conflicts.

Traffic and closures caused by the construction may seem like an inconvenience now, but it will be a major interstate improvement upon completion. The project is expected to be completed as early as winter 2018.
