Separated Lanes

Concrete barriers completely separate the TEXpress Lanes from the adjacent free general highway lanes, making driving on the lanes both safe and reliable.

Entering and Exiting the TEXpress Lanes

Highway signs with the current toll pricing are posted well in advance of every TEXpress Lanes segment entrance so that you can make a choice on your commute.

Once you choose to use the TEXpress Lanes, dedicated ramps will guide you into the lanes. You don't have to cut through traffic to access them.

When you determine your exit, dedicated exit ramps will guide you back onto the general highway lanes and frontage roads.
