Since its construction some 40 years ago, LBJ Freeway (I-635) has become one of the most congested and crowded roadways in the nation.

Beginning in 2011, LBJ and a portion of I-35E will undergo a dramatic, 5-year transformation.

Here is what the new LBJ Express will mean for North Texas.

Traffic Relief — the LBJ Express will:

Double the capacity of current road
Retain and rebuild same number of current freeway lanes
Add up to six new TEXpress lanes on I -635 and four on I-35

Accommodate future population growth for next three decades
Mobility Choices — the LBJ Express will:

Enable drivers to select freeway lanes for short or non-urgent trips
Guarantee fast 50 mph trip on LBJ Express managed toll lanes
Deliver real-time traffic information to help drivers make smart decisions
Empower drivers to get where they want, when they want

Community Commitment — the LBJ Express will:

Expand 17 miles of congested roadway by 2016
Boost the local economy with employment and contracting opportunities
Minimize disruptions during construction
Enhance business access with continuous frontage roads
Cultivate open communication with neighbors and drivers
Improve quality of life for families and businesses.

Thank you for your interest in the new LBJ Express.
