The video rendering shows a fly-over of the entire completed project, from I-35 to I-635.
Shown in the video are the TEXpress lanes, which will run to the outside along I-35 and on the inside along I-635. These will be “priced-lanes”. Many of these lanes along I-635 will be subterranean.
In all, there will be 2-3 frontage lanes in each direction, four non-tolled lanes in each direction, and three TEXpress lanes in each direction along I-635.
Engineers across the state are using the road-work project as a model.READ MORE: 'You Have Demonized Our Kids': Little Elm High School Parents Lecture School Board Over Police Handling Of Student Walkout
Upon completion, the LBJ Express is expected to eliminate traffic congestion for the more than 250,000 drivers who cruise Dallas’ busiest freeway. The reconstruction project comes at a cost of more than $2 billion.
