Dallas’ LBJ Freeway’s new toll lanes open this week

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — The new toll lanes on Dallas’ LBJ Freeway are set to open this week.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the new segment of toll lanes beneath existing free main lanes opens to traffic Thursday. The lanes feature toll prices that change as congestion does. Signs will show the price for an upcoming segment of the toll lanes.

Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Tony Hartzel tells the newspaper, “Each one is a decision point you’ll have to make.”

LBJ was originally built to handle about 180,000 cars a day. Current demand is about 270,000. The rebuilt highway with new toll lanes will be able to handle about 360,000 cars a day. Demand is expected to reach that point in 15 years.
