DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Drivers who use the HOV lanes on Interstate 35E and U.S. Highway 67 to quicken their commute will have to adjust their drive times. Starting today some of the HOV lanes are shut — for the next 4 years.

The Texas Department of Transportation closed northbound and southbound HOV lanes on the highway from Kiest to downtown.

The lane closures are a part of the Horseshoe Project, which will Interstates 30 and 35E in downtown Dallas.

TxDOT says the project should wrap up sometime in 2017.
