Work has commenced on the $1.7 billion LBJ East project, which will widen and improve Interstate 635 between Central Expressway and Interstate 30 – the Garland area’s busiest traffic corridor.
Overnight work continues this week on the project.
From 10 p.m. Friday, May 1, to 5 a.m. Saturday, May 2, the eastbound Interstate 30 exit ramp to southbound I-635 will be closed. The rebuild of the Interstate 30 interchange is a major component of the LBJ East project.
From 8 p.m. Sunday, May 3 to 5 a.m. Monday, May 4, the two left lanes of westbound I-635 will be closed between I-30 and TI Boulevard. Those lanes will also be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night starting Monday, May 4, and ending Friday, May 8.
The HOV/Express managed toll lanes between Oates Drive and TI Boulevard were closed April 27 and will remain closed until the LBJ East project is completed in 2024. The rebuilt tolled managed lanes will have shoulders and be separated from the main lanes by concrete barriers.
Drivers traveling eastbound on the TEXpress lanes in Dallas now merge into main lane traffic after U.S. Highway 75.
