35Express Lane Closures in Carrollton
Posted Date: 2/24/2015 7:00 AM

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. The project is taking place on both sides of Belt Line between Hutton Drive and Jackson Street and prevents DART buses from stopping to board or drop off passengers anywhere between the two locations. 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 lanes of the southbound I-35E frontage road between Fox Avenue in Lewisville and Frankford Road in Carrollton will be closed daily from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. through Saturday, Feb. 28. At least one lane of traffic will remain open.

Nightly Closures of East and Westbound Valwood Parkway Near I-35E Scheduled
East and westbound Valwood Parkway underneath I-35E will close from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. now through February.

Full Nighttime Closures of Valley View Lane at Interstate 35E Scheduled in Farmers Branch
Work continues on the 35Express project in Farmers Branch, Valley View Lane underneath I-35E will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. from now through Saturday, February 28.

During the closure, motorists will use the following detours: 

  • Eastbound Valley View Lane traffic will be directed to the southbound I-35E frontage road, turn left on Harry Hines, turn left on the northbound I-35E frontage road and back to eastbound Valley View Lane.
  • Westbound Valley View Lane traffic will be directed to travel down the northbound I-35E frontage road to Valwood Parkway, turn left at Valwood Parkway to the southbound I-35E frontage road and travel down the southbound I-35E frontage road to westbound Valley View Lane.

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.

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 February 2015. Motorists will need to turn left from the signalized intersection to access the southbound I-35E frontage road.

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.
