TxDOT in Dallas County: I-35 East (Phase II)

Since the late 1990s, TxDOT has been planning the improvement of the I-35E corridor in Dallas and Denton counties. In 2018, the first phase of the I-35E project was completed. Now, TxDOT is looking to complete the I-35E project with Phase II. These improvements are a part of a statewide strategic plan, the Texas Clear Lanes project, which aims to provide congestion relief in the five largest metro areas in the state.

The I-35E Phase II project will impact the segment of I-35E from I-635 to the Denton County line. The Phase II project will reconstruct and widen the road from six to eight lanes. Additionally, the project will improve intersections and reconstruct the two existing managed toll lanes. According to a project fact sheet, the project has $75 million allocated to acquiring Right of Way (ROW). TxDOT anticipates that construction on the project will begin in late 2021, but before then, it is likely that TxDOT will need to acquire additional ROW from Dallas County landowners.
