I-35E Lowest Stemmons Project - Public Meeting

Thursday, June 16, 2016

CSJ: 0196-03-268

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) proposes operational improvements to Interstate Highway 35 East (I-35E) from I-30 to Oak Lawn Avenue within the City of Dallas in Dallas County, Texas. The proposed project is approximately 2.17 miles long. Proposed improvements include reconstruction of the southbound (SB) frontage road, construction of a two-lane SB and northbound (NB) Collector-Distributor (CD) roads, and the reconstruction of ramps to improve traffic operations that address the existing weaving conditions. Improvements along I-35E are necessary to maintain a balance between mobility, access, operational and safety needs.

I-35E is a major north-south facility that provides connections to several major roadways including the Dallas North Tollway (DNT), I-30, and Spur 366 (Woodall Rodgers Freeway). The existing Lowest Stemmons corridor consists of a complex network of mainlanes and access ramps that result in traffic weaving and congestion. Currently, the various on and off ramps in close proximity to one another contribute to traffic congestion and weaving conditions within the project limits. The purpose of the proposed project is to manage traffic congestion by improving operations along I-35E. The proposed project would improve mobility and access by constructing CD roads, direct connectors and reconfiguring existing ramps. In general, a CD road can improve the overall traffic flow operations of a freeway system by providing consolidated access and transferring weaving from the mainlanes to the CD lanes.
