North 31st Street and IH-35 Connection Project | City of Temple
Description: When designing the North 31 street improvements and the IH-35 connection, KPA wanted to ensure that the project would increase traffic flow, as well as provide a pleasing and attractive appearance.
The project consisted of improving North 31st Street and adding a roundabout to connect to IH-35, Bray Street, and Calhoun Road, as well as allowing access to Temple High School. There is a large statue of Temple High School’s “Wildcat” mascot at the center of the roundabout.
This roadway project not only contributes to the aesthetic appeal of the area but also contributes to a significant amount of safety enhancements for Temple High School. Through this project, you can see our focus on not only improving the roadway appearance, but more importantly allowing the City of Temple to improve roadway safety on IH-35 frontage road, Temple High School, and Calhoun Road.
This multi-million-dollar development spans an area of approximately 16.5 acres. As a result of these improvements, there will be better traffic flow, more pedestrian movement, and a more aesthetically pleasing look from IH-35.
