DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Drivers in Dallas are in for a few changes on Monday morning. Some new ramps are now open that will hopefully make things easier for commuters around the downtown area.
Those heading north along Interstate-35E, from the Oak Cliff neighborhood into downtown, will no longer need to cut across several lanes of traffic to reach the Woodall Rodgers Freeway. Simply keep to the right for an earlier exit. Take the one marked as Reunion Boulevard and, now, Highway 75. Drivers can then connect with the old ramp to Woodall Rodgers Freeway.READ MORE: Plano Superintendent Sara Bonser Announces Plans To Retire

Meanwhile, drivers heading east on Interstate-30 into Dallas will now use Exit 45-A toward Highway 75 and Commerce Street to access Woodall Rodgers Freeway. This prevents people from having to merge onto the Interstate-35E main lanes in order to reach the old exit.
Finally, anyone coming from eastbound Commerce Street and Reunion Boulevard will now go north on Riverfront Boulevard to access the Woodall Rodgers Freeway.MORE NEWS: Plano Judge Orders Elmer Stewart Rhodes Remain Detained Pending Trial
