MoPac Intersections Slaughter Lane & La Crosse Avenue

Improvements are on the way for Loop 1 (MoPac) at the intersections of Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue! Congestion and traffic volumes have grown at accelerating rates, causing difficulty for drivers who pass through and use these intersections. Utility relocation has already begun in an effort to expedite construction. In addition, crews are expected to begin right-of-way preparations in mid-January in order to prep the area for construction.

Improvements will enhance safety for all modes of travel, decrease wait times at the intersections, decrease overall travel time, and improve left-turning movements.

Planned improvements include:

  • Constructing two mainlanes in each direction on MoPac underneath Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue
  • Constructing a Diverging Diamond Intersection at MoPac and Slaughter Lane (check out an example animation here)
  • Improving the intersection at MoPac and La Crosse Avenue
  • Improving/adding pedestrian and bicycle accommodations – including building a shared-use path on the west side of MoPac from Slaughter Lane to La Crosse Avenue

Updates will continue to be shared via email. For additional information, visit and search for “MoPac Intersections” to visit the project page.
