The TXDOT application is for the placement of dredged or fill material in various waterways (Section 404 CWA). This proposal would also involve the placement dredged or fill material into navigable waters of the United States associated with Red River Crossing (Section 10 RHA). This activity would facilitate the reconstruction and widening of the existing IH 35 corridor from FM 3002 to the Texas/Oklahoma Stateline. Additionally, new North bound lanes would be constructed adjacent (East) of existing corridor near the Red River bridge. For the remaining sections, two additional travel lanes would be added to the existing IH35 infrastructure in each direction. The existing frontage roads would be converted to one-way traffic to increase safety and capacity on IH 35.
