Dallas, Texas – LBJ Express will be gaining new features and enhancements along the project, just in time for Thanksgiving.
More new overhead sign structures will be constructed in the eastern portion of the project, regarding the section of the new managed toll lanes to open mid-December. This will prompt temporary closures along the eastbound and westbound lanes. Operations in both directions will be done overnight.
On Monday, November 25 at 9 pm, the eastbound general purpose lanes between Preston Road and Coit Road will be closed.
Detour: Eastbound traffic will be directed to take the exit ramp to Hillcrest Road and continue along the frontage road. Those wishing to re-enter eastbound I-635 will be able to do so via the entrance ramp after Park Central. Access to both north- and southbound US 75 will be available via the intersection under the High Five.
*Updated details below for Tuesday closures:*
Beginning at 8 pm on Tuesday, November 26, the westbound general purpose lanes at Greenville Avenue will be closed. At this time, westbound traffic will be detoured to take the exit to Greenville, continue along the frontage road and re-enter the westbound main lanes via the entrance ramp from Greenville.
After all structures have been installed in this section, crews will then re-open the main lanes, and then close the westbound general purpose lanes between Coit and Preston. Westbound traffic will be detoured to take the exit to Park Central/Hillcrest, continue along the frontage road and re-enter the westbound main lanes via the entrance ramp from Hillcrest.
Traffic will be restored to normal by Wednesday, November 27 at 6 am.
It has been a productive few months since the LBJ Express presented an innovative approach to improve local mobility. The goal of the local mobility initiative was to enhance access to adjacent businesses and improve travel for local motorists by accelerating construction, and opening bypass lanes and frontage roads in many areas between Josey Lane and Midway Road two years earlier than planned.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the LBJ Express team is excited to open the eastbound bypasses over Webb Chapel and Josey, adding to the already open westbound bypasses over Josey, Webb Chapel, Midway and Hillcrest, as well as the eastbound bypass over Park Central. With almost all LBJ bypass ramps open, it’s never been easier to move along LBJ’s frontage roads, making access to shopping and entertainment along LBJ significantly easier for local traffic.
Message boards and signs will be placed along the roadway to advise motorists of all closures and detours. Closures are subject to scheduling and weather conditions and will be postponed, if necessary.
