Earlier this week, PCTPA met with representatives from local neighborhoods, and property and business owners to discuss the Galleria Boulevard/Stanford Ranch Road/SR 65 Northbound Ramps project. This project proposes local street and interchange improvements near Galleria Boulevard and Stanford Ranch Road to address congestion and safety issues in the area. Project features include widening both the northbound off and on-ramps, realigning the northbound loop off-ramp, and adding a second left turn lane.
PCTPA is currently beginning the environmental documentation phase of the project. Following this, and dependent on project funding, we expect to begin construction in 2017. This project is the first phase of the I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements project, which has been in the planning process for more than 5 years. The I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements project aims to relieve the existing traffic chokepoint at SR 65 and I-80 to improve local traffic flow and regional commutes.
