​WACO – ​The project to rebuild and widen I-35 from 12th St. to North Loop 340 is set to begin in 2019 after the Texas Transportation Commission voted to contribute $115 million in discretionary funds.

The $300 million project will;

  • ​rebuild and expand the main lanes from six to eight lanes;

  • rebuild frontage roads;

  • replace ramps; and 

  • replace highway and river bridges. 

The remainder of funding for the $300 million northern phase will come from the budgets of local transportation agencies.

The Texas Department of Transportation's Waco district office will dedicate $105 million of its state allocation over several years.

The Waco Metropolitan Planning Organization will dedicate four years of its state funding to the project starting in 2019, for a total of $80 million. ​
