Nightly Road Closures for 35Express Construction
Posted Date: 12/31/2013 1:00 PM

The left lane of north- and southbound I-35E between Valley View Lane and Valwood Parkway will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m., Monday, July 14 through Friday, July 25. During the closure, crews will set concrete traffic barrier.

Belt Line Road, Crosby Road, Valley View Lane, Main, and West College Streets will be closed at the I-35E frontage roads. These closures will be in place nightly from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. through Sunday, August 31.

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.

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 www.35Express.org, or call 214-483-7777.
