Construction Limits Route 400 Bus Stops Along Belt Line Road
Passengers are advised of ongoing construction along Belt Line Road in Carrollton that will restrict DART service in the area for next 18 months or more.

Route 400 service will continue to connect with the DART Green Line at Downtown Carrollton Station, but will otherwise operate non-stop between Jackson and Hutton.

Various lane closures on the north- and southbound I-35E frontage roads between Belt Line Road and north of I-635 will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Sunday, August 30.

Interstate 35E HOV Lanes Permanently Closed
The I-35E north and southbound high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes between FM 3040/Round Grove Road in Lewisville and to I-635 in Dallas are permanently closed.

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.

On average, nearly 7,000 vehicles per day use this five-mile stretch of HOV lanes. For more information on lane closures or the 35Express Project, visit 35Express.org, or call 214-483-7777.
