Interstate 10 double deck section, San Antonio

Last updated September 4, 2001

Also see Interstate 35 San Antonio double deck | Hairpin ramps at IH-10/IH-35 San Antonio

Just north of downtown San Antonio is the double deck section of interstate 10. The double decking, completed in the late 1980's, added six elevated lanes to the existing 4-lane freeway below. Of Texas' 4 double decked freeways, this is probably the "best" one, considering size, length, and design characteristics.

Looking north from the Cincinnati overpass, 1968 and September 2, 2001. I'm surprised that the original pedestrian overpass was retained in the double deck freeway.
