Dallas – April 24, 2014 – This weekend, contractors will continue installation of large overhead sign structures for this summer’s Phase 2 opening of the new tolled TEXpress lanes. The installation will require a full closure of westbound I-635 between Webb Chapel Road and Josey Lane for a few hours.
Work will begin Saturday, April 26 at 10 p.m.At this time, westbound traffic will be directed to take the westbound exit to Webb Chapel and detoured through the westbound bypass. Traffic will be able to re-enter the westbound main lanes via the entrance ramp from Josey. The westbound entrance ramp from Marsh Lane and the westbound frontage roads between Marsh to Webb Chapel, and Josey to Denton, will also be closed.
Work should be completed by Sunday, April 27 at 2 a.m.
LBJ construction crews remain active projectwide, particularly along the west segment of the project where the new Phase 2 TEXpress lanes are set to open this summer. Phase 2 lanes will include the toll lanes along I-35E, stretching just south of Valley View to south of Northwest Highway. The lanes will connect with I-635 just west of Josey Lane.

Message boards and signs will be placed along the roadway to advise motorists of the closures and detours. Drivers should anticipate delays and may want to seek alternate routes. Closures are subject to weather and scheduling conditions and will be postponed if necessary.
