||The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing improvements to the I-635/I-35E interchange along I-635 from Luna Road to State Loop (SL) 354/Denton Drive and along I-35E & I-35E Express from Royal Lane to Valley View Lane in Dallas County, Texas.|
The proposed project improvements include the construction of four two-lane managed direct connectors within the existing I-635/I-35E interchange. The direct connectors facilitate access between I-635 and I-35E for the northbound to eastbound, southbound to eastbound, westbound to southbound, westbound to northbound movements. In addition, managed lanes (two lanes in each direction) would be constructed along I-635 from Luna Road to near Denton Drive. The added managed lane direct connectors at the I-635/I-35E interchange would be in addition to the eight existing direct connectors that will remain in place.
Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling 214-320-6675.
The proposed project would involve construction in wetlands and an action in a floodplain.
Any environmental documentation or studies, any maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at TxDOT Dallas District Office, 4777 East U.S. Highway 80, Mesquite, TX 75150. Project materials are also available online at the project website. These materials will also be available in hard copy form for review at the in-person option.
