TxDOT hosts public meeting for I-635 East ultimate project

by | Apr 15, 2016 | Latest

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public meeting for the proposed I-635 LBJ East Ultimate project with limits from US 75 to I-30 in the cities of Dallas, Garland and Mesquite. The ‘open house’ informal meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19 at the Highland Oaks Church of Christ, 10805 Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas. Maps showing the project’s location and geometric design will be available for viewing.

The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The project proposes improvements to I-635 from east of US 75 to south of I-30 and to I-30 from west of Gus Thomasson Road to east of North Galloway Avenue. The proposed project would reconstruct I-635 to provide five general-purpose lanes, two tolled managed lanes and two to three frontage road lanes in each direction from US 75 to near Royal Lane/Miller Road. From near Royal Lane/Miller Road to La Prada Drive, the proposed project would reconstruct I-635 to provide five general-purpose lanes, two non-tolled express lanes and two to three frontage road lanes in each direction. From La Prada Drive to south of I-30, the project would reconstruct I-635 to provide lane balance transitions between the general purpose lanes, proposed express lanes and the I-30 interchange.

Additionally, two to three frontage road lanes would be constructed in each direction from La Prada to Town East Boulevard. Improvements to I-30 would include reconstructing the main lanes to provide at least three lanes in each direction through the I-635 interchange with allowances provided for potential future managed/express lanes. Auxiliary lanes would also be constructed for the I-635 interchange. The I-30 improvements would include two to three lane frontage roads in each direction. The project includes the construction of multiple noise walls located along the project corridor—where reasonable and feasible.

The cost is approximately $1.49 billion and the project is anticipated to begin in 2018 for four years.
