The below are at an intersection with a significant street:

Feeder: (each direction)
1 U Turn Only Lane
1 Left Turn Only Lane
1 Left Turn or Straight Lane
2 Through traffic Lanes

Elevated Portion: (each direction)
2 Managed Lanes
4-5 Main Lanes


Variables:
- Some intersections only have 1 lane one can make left turns from
- Some elevated portions may have additional lanes to accommodate on-ramps (such as the 4-lane on/off ramp for IH 610 west loop)
- There's sometimes an extra lane for getting into or out of the managed lanes from the main lanes
- On/off ramps between the feeder and the main lanes are not included


So, if anything, 20 lanes is the Katy Freeway at its narrowest point.

Also, is that Highway 290 concept is going to happen or is it just a dream or vision?

Bureaucracy is slowing it down, but it looks inevitable at this point. Though I'm sure things like Bike Paths and Rail lines featured in that video will certainly not be happening within the next couple decades.

Basically 290 will be a new Katy Freeway.

Thanks for that. 290 is going to be amazing. Do you know how far this project will go?
