This December, the first phase of the gigantic LBJ Express project – a three-mile toll road between Preston and Greenville – will open up to drivers, hopefully bringing some relief to an area that is constantly congested.
The toll roads, called TEXpress lanes, will offer drivers a minimum predictable speed of 50 mph and create more capacity for adjacent general highway lanes.
Toll rates for the new road will vary from 15 to 95 cents during the first four weeks after opening, but motorcycle drivers and people who register for HOV/carpool status will have lower fees. Click here to see specific information on the toll rates.
After a six-month review period, pricing on the TEXpress lanes will vary, depending on traffic volume and travel speed, or supply and demand – so the tolls could go up even higher as more cars use the toll lanes.
