TxDOT’s $100 Million Plan to “Untangle” the I-35 North

The Dallas Morning News reports, “That miserable stretch of highway just north of downtown Dallas where Woodall Rodgers Freeway and the Dallas North Tollway flow into Interstate 35E is getting a makeover. State officials say they can loosen traffic there by 2019 — without redoing a single main lane. State funds totaling $100 million were approved for the project earlier in the year. This week, the Texas Department of Transportation offered more details about how it will change the 2-mile stretch of I-35E dubbed Lowest Stemmons.” The newspaper provides a detailed summary of the project, including a look at how it ties “into the $800 million Horseshoe project, a reconstruction of the highway section south of downtown Dallas where I-35E and I-30 connect. That project is scheduled to be completed next year.”
