The project is to widen I-10 west and east near 108 and 210. It also includes raising the Maple Fork bridge up to 100-year flood height. The $45 million-plus project is set to widen and add auxiliary lanes between the 210 interchange. The reason for the addition is adding the extra lanes allows motorists a safer passage to change lanes in that area.

Lane closures will alternate as the project gets underway, then eventually it will go down to just two lanes in that area. That's when the traffic will be impacted the greatest. Speeds will be reduced, so start to expect delays daily as we all get used to driving in that area once again. The DOT suggests using their website,, to stay up to date with all of the traffic delays, and lane closures. The project is expected to last till the summer of 2021, depending on weather.
