Lowest Stemmons Clear Lanes Project Completed

DALLAS, TX — An $83-million improvement along the Interstate Highway 35E Lowest Stemmons corridor in Dallas was recently celebrated as the first project completed in the Dallas Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) District as part of the state’s congestion-fighting Texas Clear Lanes Program.

The project included construction of new collector-distributor lanes, which parallel IH 35E and give drivers a safer and easier path to and from Woodall Rodgers Freeway and the Dallas North Tollway. The dedicated lanes are improving safety by eliminating the previous merging and weaving movements, a change that will keep traffic flowing on the main lanes and on the new connector ramps.

Seven new bridge spans were constructed adjacent to the north and southbound IH 35E main lanes. The project also features capacity improvements on the frontage roads.

This project is one of several Texas Clear Lanes projects across the state and the first to be completed in the Dallas District. In the Fort Worth District, three Texas Clear Lanes projects — the State Highway 121/SH 360 interchange, a 2.5-mile stretch of SH 199, and the IH 635/SH 121 interchange — were previously completed. This initiative targets extremely congested roadways in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.

Other Texas Clear Lanes projects currently underway in the Dallas area are:

  • IH 635 East
  • IH 35E/US 67 (Southern Gateway)
  • Interchange improvement project at Loop 12, SH 114, Spur 482, and SH 183 in Irving
  • IH 30 East
