UPDATE: Loyola Drive at I-10 Interchange Traffic Alert

As work continues to progress on the Loyola Drive, I-10 interchange; drivers can expect traffic configuration changes beginning on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

A temporary ramp will open Sunday evening to allow northbound traffic on Loyola Drive to access I-10 eastbound directly. Drivers leaving the airport or traveling along Veterans Boulevard will be able to make a slight right turn off Loyola to enter the temporary ramp. Northbound traffic on Loyola will also be able to enter I-10 eastbound by making a right turn onto the existing ramp at the I-10, Loyola traffic signal. The temporary at grade ramp will improve traffic flow and relieve congestion by providing free flowing access to I-10 for traffic leaving the airport.

The northbound lanes of Loyola will shift slightly right to accommodate construction of the direct access flyover ramps to and from the airport.

This work is part of the ongoing $125 million I-10, Loyola Drive Interchange improvements. Once complete, there will be two flyover ramps, which will directly connect the airport to I-10. The project also adds auxiliary lanes along I-10 between Loyola Drive and Williams Boulevard. Loyola Drive and the existing ramps will be modified to accommodate the improvements and to tie into the airport connector road.

Construction on the Loyola Drive, I-10 interchange project is expected to be complete in late 2023 or early 2024, weather permitting.
