The goal of the LBJ Express Project is to finance, construct, operate and maintain a corridor of frontage road, general purpose and tolled managed lanes from east of Luna Road to east of US 75 (near Greenville Avenue) approximately 14 miles.

This includes tolled managed lanes within the right of way of I-635 and elevated tolled managed lane direct connectors along I-35E. The project also completes a continuous frontage road system along I-635 between the Dallas North Tollway and I-35E.

On Feb. 26, 2009, the Texas Transportation Commission conditionally awarded the LBJ Express Project to LBJ Infrastructure Group (formerly LBJ Development Partners), which will finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the 13-mile corridor for 52 years.

On May 7, 2009, TxDOT held a public hearing on the disclosure of financial information for the LBJ-635 Comprehensive Development Agreement. Review the public hearing summary and analysis.

On Sept. 4, 2009, TxDOT officials executed a comprehensive development agreement (CDA) with the LBJ Infrastructure Group to design, construct, finance, operate and maintain the 13-mile LBJ-635 corridor in Dallas County.
