LBJ EXPRESS ANNOUNCES FREE WEEKEND

March 18, 2021

PARK CENTRAL CLOSURE MARCH 19 – 22; ALTERNATIVE ROUTE ON EASTBOUND LBJ TEXPRESS LANES ARE FREE

 

DALLAS, Texas – Beginning Friday, March 19th at 9:00 p.m. – Monday, March 22nd at 5:00 a.m. the use of eastbound LBJ TEXpress Lanes will be offered without charge to all drivers. Over the weekend multiple lane closures on eastbound I-635 general highway lanes from Preston Road to Park Central Drive will occur for road repairs, drivers are encouraged to use the eastbound LBJ TEXpress Lanes for FREE to avoid traffic delays on I-635.

This work is weather-permitting. Updated closure information is posted daily on Twitter (@TEXpressAlerts) and Facebook (@TEXpressLanes).

 

This work is part of the LBJ Express project, a $2.7 billion, 13.3-mile highway in Dallas, Texas. The corridor spans along I-635/LBJ Freeway and is one of the most innovative, congestion-management projects in North Texas.

The new highway includes redesigned, general highway lanes and fully-optimized frontage roads. As these were being rebuilt, four to six tolled express lanes (known as the LBJ TEXpress Lanes) were added in the middle of I-635, from Luna Road to Greenville Avenue. Since completion, the LBJ Express has doubled in capacity, spanning across two municipalities in Dallas County.

Drivers are encouraged to “Know Before They Go,” and visit www.lbjtexpress.com for upcoming closures. To view maps, please visit the LBJ TEXpress Lanes Corridor Maps page.  Also, as lane closures are updated frequently, please visit the Lane Closures page daily for the most current information.  Closures are subject to weather conditions, and construction activities may be postponed if necessary.
