Built in 1960, a directional cloverleaf interchange with left side ramps originally joined IH 10/IH 410 at Balcones Heights. Construction in 2005/06 rebuilt the exchange into a five-level interchange. Photos taken 02/18/06.
Completely past IH 10/U.S. 87, the next exits along IH 410 east are for Vance Jackson Road and Jackson-Keller Road. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Exit 17B joins IH 410 east with Vance Jackson Road and the North Central neighborhood of San Antonio. Photo taken 02/18/06.

IH 410 enters the city of Castle Hills ahead of Exit 19 for FM 1535 (Military Highway) and FM 2696 (Blanco Road) north. Photo taken 02/18/06.
The succeeding exit beyond FM 2696 (Blanco Road) is with San Pedro Avenue (former Spur 537). Spur 537 along San Pedro Avenue represented the original route of U.S. 281 through north San Antonio. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Construction reconfigured Exit 18 by realigning the southbound ramp from FM 1535 to a T intersection with the IH 410 frontage road. A direct ramp to Blanco Road was subsequently removed. Photo taken 02/18/06.
A diamond interchange (Exit 20) joins IH 410 with San Pedro Avenue (old U.S. 281). Prior to construction of the systems interchange with U.S. 281 (McAllister Freeway), San Pedro Avenue provided part of the connection between the two freeways. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Blanco Road spans IH 410 along the Castle Hills and San Antonio city line. Photo taken 02/18/06.
San Pedro Avenue was U.S. 281 prior to the construction of the McAllister Freeway in 1978. A cloverleaf interchange with San Pedro Avenue represented the only connection to U.S. 281 north from IH 410 until 2008. Photo taken 02/18/06.
A high speed flyover (Exit 21A) to U.S. 281 (McAllister Freeway) replaced the former exit from IH 410 east to Jones-Maltsberger Road). Photo taken 02/18/06.

The flyover ramp (Exit 21B) to U.S. 281 (McAllister Freeway) south from IH 410 east opened to traffic in June 2008. It replaced a frontage road ramp connecting with Airport Boulevard and Wetmore Road. Photos taken 02/18/06.
Construction began on the IH 410/U.S. 281 interchange in 2002, 24 years after the completion of the McAllister Freeway. With total costs of the project at about $155 million, funding for the new stack required bond sales. The exchange was omitted from original construction of U.S. 281 due to litigation and delays, which held up release of needed land for the interchange. Photo taken 12/31/02.
Eastbound Interstate 410 at Exit 22 to Broadway and Wetmore Road south of San Antonio International Airport (SAT). While Broadway represents the former alignment of U.S. 81 in Downtown San Antonio, it is just a local arterial highway in the northern parts of the city. Photo taken 12/31/02.
IH 410 progresses eastward to Windcrest and IH 35, next meeting Nacogdoches Road at Exit 23. Nacogdoches Road parallels IH 35 from Garden Ridge northeast of the city to Alamo Heights and U.S. 281 to the southwest. Photo taken 12/31/02.
Harry Wurzbach Road, a divided surface arterial, connects IH 410 at Exit 24 with Terrell Hills and Fort Sam Houston to the south. Photo taken 12/31/02.

Loop 368 (Austin Highway) ties into IH 410 just ahead of the exchange with IH 35 at Exit 26A. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Loop 368 (Austin Highway) south from IH 410 is former U.S. 81. The beltway mainline defaults onto IH 35 north to Austin along the ensuing stretch. IH 410 east makes a TOTSO (turn off to stay on) movement ahead, combining with IH 35 south at Windcrest. This design dates back to the original construction of Loop 13 which predates IH 410. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Exit 26B follows the entrance ramp from SL 368 to Interchange Parkway and the Prologis Park - Perrin Creek business park. Photo taken 02/18/06.
Exit 26B parts ways with IH 410 east toward Perrin Creek Drive. Two lanes continue north onto IH 35. Succeeding ramps take IH 410 south back into San Antonio and to Thousand Oaks Drive / Starlight Terrace. Photo taken 02/18/06.
IH 410 and IH 35 converge at a modified trumpet interchange along the Windcrest city line. A lone high speed flyover joins IH 35 south with the beltway west. Photo taken 02/18/06.
