(DALLAS – December 4, 2014) – Beginning Friday, Dec. 5 at 9 p.m. to Saturday, Dec. 6 at 8 a.m. the following areas of the LBJ Express will be closed:

  • Eastbound I-635 starting just east of Luna Rd. to I-35E will be closed.
  • The eastbound frontage road from Webb Chapel to Marsh will be closed.
  • The direct connector from northbound I-35E to eastbound I-635 will be reduced to one lane.

All eastbound I-635 traffic will be detoured to the northbound I-35E exit, U-turn at Valwood Parkway and travel southbound towards the eastbound managed lanes direct connector. All northbound I-35E traffic headed for eastbound I-635 will be detoured to use the Josey Lane exit, travel the Josey/Webb Chapel bypass lanes and would be able to re-enter the eastbound main lanes using the entrance ramp after Webb Chapel.

During this time, both TEXpress direct connector ramps from northbound and southbound I-35E to eastbound I-635 will be free of charge. Signage and message boards will be placed along the roadway to advise motorists of the closures and detours. Motorists are advised to expect delays and seek alternate routes at this time. Work is weather permitting and scheduling will be postponed if necessary.
