The left lane of north- and southbound I-35E near Valley View Lane in Carrollton will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m., Monday, March 3 through Saturday, March 8 to set a concrete traffic barrier. As with all closures, this work is subject to weather conditions and will be postponed if necessary.
Traffic at Valwood Parkway will be shifted towards the middle of the roadway, while traffic at Crosby Road, Belt Line Road and Whitlock Lane will be shifted towards the outer limits of the interstate. This traffic pattern will be in place for the next nine months.
The U-turn lane at Valwood Parkway from the northbound I-35E frontage road to the southbound I-35E frontage road will be closed through June 2014. Motorists will need to turn left from the signalized intersection to access the southbound I-35E frontage road.
The I-35E north and southbound high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes running from Whitlock Lane in Carrollton, south to I-635 in Dallas will close permanently, as construction progresses on the I-35E expansion project, or 35Express.
Once finished, 35Express will feature a pair of reversible managed toll lanes that will take the place of HOV lanes. The managed lanes will be reversed each day to handle southbound traffic in the morning, and northbound traffic in the evening. The goal of the managed lanes will be to ease congestion and keep traffic flowing at an average rate of 50 mph along the corridor.
35Express will be hosting a series of community meetings for individuals wanting to know more about the project. Carrollton and Farmers Branch residents are invited to attend the south segment community meeting held at Farmers Branch City Hall (13000 William Dodson Pkwy. Farmers Branch, 75234) on Thursday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. For residents affected by other areas of construction, please refer to the information below:
