This new video rendering shows a full project fly-over of what the completed LBJ Express Project will look like from above. You will notice the TEXpress (priced-lanes) to the outside along I-35 and on the inside along I-635. In many areas, these will be subterranean along I-635. All said and done, there will be 2-3 frontage road lanes in each direction, 4 non-tolled lanes in each direction and 3 priced lanes (TEXpress Lanes) in each directions along I-635.

The toll lanes will offer a 50 mph rate of speed and better. We maintain that speed by adjusting the toll up as traffic begins to drop below 50 mph and decreasing it once traffic speed rise back above 50 mph. This will allow the traffic to maintain a constant speed.
Drivers will have a choice, they can take the priced lanes or stay on the non-tolled lanes. We can only regulate the speed on the toll lanes, but the good news is everyone benefits from those that do choose to pay for the tolls with a brand new road with safer lanes for everyone.
The project is slated for completion in December 2015. We will open our first segment in December of this year between Montfort and Greenville Ave!
