You won’t see construction on this section until closer to the end of the LBJ Express project, but they’re already presenting designs and soliciting feedback from neighbors about the proposed plan for the 635 and Dallas North Tollway interchange.
You can take a closer look at the project during an open house style public meeting 5-8 p.m. Tuesday at Sheraton Dallas North. The Federal Highway Administration, TxDOT and the LBJ Express project team will be on hand to answer questions.
The original plan was for the depressed managed lanes being built throughout the freeway to continue underneath the Tollway. Instead, the lanes will raise to the normal level when they reach this point.
“This essentially takes those managed lanes and elevates them up to the same level as the general purpose lanes,” says Andy Rittler of LBJ Infrastructure Group. “This keeps us from having to tear up the Dallas North Tollway.”
At Tuesday night’s meeting, officials also will present the noise study finding, which show no significant impact to nearby homes and businesses, Rittler says.
Starting Sept. 10, drivers will start to see the reconstruction of some major bridges – Joe Ratcliff, Rosser, Marsh and Montfort. Traffic will be reduced to one lane as they work on one side of each bridge at a time.
As the holidays approach in November, LBJ Express will limit its construction activity due to contractual agreements since the area sees increased traffic during that time.
