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.
