Beltway 8 / I-10 West Stack

Last updated 29-March-2001

This was the first Beltway 8 stack to be built. The right-of-way is extremely limited, with very little available at the four corners of the freeway intersection. Some of the ramps were built directly over the feeder roads.

This interchange will demolished and replaced when the I-10 expansion occurs. Reconstruction is needed to accommodate the new, wider IH-10. Since the interchange opened in 1989 and reconstruction should begin around 2003-2005, the stack shouldn't last much longer than 15 years. This is an unprecedented short lifetime for a major freeway interchange.

The peeling paint and rust stains on the piers are somewhat unsightly.
