Section 8: Roadways Intersecting Department Projects

Roadways that intersect or tie into a facility which the department is constructing must improve or retain the existing geometry of the intersecting roadway, or meet the design criteria for the roadway classification of the intersecting road. When a non-state intersecting road needs to adapt its alignment to the state's road improvements, there is no need for a design exception or design waiver as long as the non-state road’s geometry retains or exceeds its existing geometry. Existing geometry will include all cross sectional elements. The definition of intersecting roadways excludes driveways.

When the intersecting road is modified and changed to tie into a TxDOT facility due to the request by the county or city then it must follow TxDOT design criteria for local streets. If the criteria is not met, a design exception is required.
