DALLAS – Initial construction has begun on the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Horseshoe Project on I-30 and I-35E through the Mixmaster in downtown Dallas with work focused on frontage roads and bridges along the project area.

As part of this construction, the northbound and southbound High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes along I-35E and US 67 will close Friday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m.

A new temporary entrance ramp to the southbound HOV lane south of W. Louisiana Avenue will reopen on Monday, Sept. 9. However, the entire northbound HOV lane of I-35E from W. Kiest Boulevard to the downtown Dallas exit, northbound HOV lane of US 67 from Loop 12 to I-35E and the southbound HOV lane from downtown Dallas to W. Louisiana Avenue will be closed for the duration of the four-year project. To accommodate the lane closures, we recommend commuters adjust their travel time needs during high-traffic hours.
