Project Overview

Work is currently underway on TxDOT's I-10 Kendall Extension project, causing a significant impact on traffic in and around the City of Boerne. As part of the project, TxDOT is replacing two overpass bridges across I-10 in Boerne – one at Main Street and one at Highway 46 (Bandera Road). Improvements are also being made to the access roads, including conversion to one-way traffic. The city will utilize this webpage to provide updates as we receive them from TxDOT and its contractors.

As work on these projects progresses, TxDOT will announce closures that will impact the flow of traffic in and around Boerne. Please be aware that any scheduled closures are subject to change. Check back frequently and follow the City of Boerne on Facebook and Twitter for the latest information. Learn about current and upcoming road closures below.

Current Closures

Westbound I-10 On Ramp at Highway 46

Starting April 4, 2022, there will be a temporary closure of the existing westbound SH 46/Bandera Rd. entrance ramp onto I-10 West. This is the part of the access road by the Days Inn and School Street. This closure is to allow for TxDOT crews and the contractor to construct the new entrance ramp. School Street will remain open, as will the part of the access road that leads to School Street. It is estimated this portion of the project will take three weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Those needing to get onto I-10 West, heading towards Comfort and Kerrville, will need to get on the interstate at Johns Road, North Main Street, or utilize Christus Parkway and use the on ramp just before Highway 46.

Eastbound I-10 Frontage Road

Starting Monday, January 3, 2022, the existing Eastbound I-10 Frontage Road will be closed from Menger Springs to Highway 87 (Main Street). Estimated completion is Spring 2022.

During the closure, traffic on the Eastbound I-10 Frontage Road will be detoured onto I-10 via the new entrance ramp past Menger Springs and can exit back onto the Frontage Road via Exit 543 to Scenic Loop Road.

This closure is being done to allow TxDOT’s contractor to construct the new frontage road and the approach work to the Highway 87 bridge. See a map of the closure below.
