If Its Big and Ambitious Then It Must Be Texas!
The new and improved LBJ Express is a major infrastructure development that is an innovative solution to the age-old problem of road congestion.
The LBJ Express close to Dallas, Texas, is a public private partnership, with limited funding from taxpayer sources. The project will incorporate dramatic improvements to Interstate 635 (IH-635) and Interstate 35E (IH-35E) in Dallas County featuring rebuilt main lanes, a continuous frontage road system, and 13 new miles (21 km) of managed toll lanes.
The LBJ Express is an ambitious project that will transform approximately 17 miles (27 km) of roadway in a five-year time period by working on several construction areas simultaneously.
During project construction, traffic must be moving at all times, with at least four lanes open in each direction and an exit always available during peak traffic times.
The current capacity of today’s LBJ Freeway will be nearly doubled with the creation of up to six new express managed lanes on IH-635 and four new managed lanes on portions of IH-35.
