Baytown IH-10 Ramp Reversal
John Martin Road to Garth Road
Garth Road is the main commercial corridor in Baytown. It routinely serves more than 40,000 vehicles per day. In the next two years the area between John Martin Road and Garth Road is expected to open several large scale commercial developments, which will increase the volume of traffic to Garth Road, John Martin Road, and the newly constructed San Jacinto Boulevard.
The current configuration of the entrance and exit ramps for eastbound IH-10 is the old diamond pattern, meaning the entrance ramp is located shortly after John Martin Road and the exit ramp gore is located approximately 1,100 feet upstream of Garth Road.
This configuration combined with the expected increases in traffic will present a roadway safety issue. Under current traffic conditions, the eastbound queue at Garth Road extends to the exit ramp. This condition makes it unsafe for drivers who need to access Garth Road because of the necessary weaving patterns.
The proposed improvements include moving the exit ramp westward towards John Martin Road, shifting the on-ramp eastward towards Garth Road and installing a weaving lane between the two ramps.
The primary outcomes of this project are expected to be easier access to eastbound IH-10, fewer opportunities for accidents on the feeder road, increased traffic flow and mobility, decreases in delay, and an increase in LOS for all modes of transportation that use the corridor.

This project is expected to increase the LOS for Auto mode by removing on-facility weaving patterns and facilitating off-ramp flow to the intersection of IH-10 feeder road and Garth Road.
