Current Preston Road Bridge Traffic Configuration
Many of you may have driven the Preston Road bridge crossing over LBJ Freeway recently and noticed that traffic has been reduced down from 4 lanes in both the northbound & southbound directions with u-turns down to 3 lanes in each direction without u-turns. As one of the busiest intersections in Dallas, it’s important to know the current configuration of the bridge.
What you may not know:
Driving over the Preston Road bridge can be easier than you think….if you “know before you go”!
What you can do:
Before you leave your home or office, take a look at the current traffic configuration for the bridge and familiarize yourself with the designated signage!
Before reaching the bridge, the northbound 2 left lanes lanes of traffic must go straight and the right lane can go straight or turn right on the eastbound frontage road . Once you are on the bridge, the left lane must turn left while the right lanes must go straight .
The southbound lanes of Preston have 4 lanes before reaching the westbound frontage road. The right lane must turn right and the 3 left lanes must go straight . Once on the bridge the two right lanes can continue to travel straight and the left lane must turn left .
The LBJ Express Team acknowledges that construction is not easy. However, if you stay informed about the project and the areas you need to travel, construction becomes a lot easier!
