New TEXpress ramps are being added to I-35W in far north Fort Worth to improve connectivity near Western Center Boulevard.

A new temporary on-ramp from the northbound I-35W general highway lanes to the northbound TEXpress lanes will be situated just south of Western Center Boulevard.

A new temporary off-ramp from the southbound TEXpress lanes to the southbound I-35W general lanes will be just south of Western Center Boulevard.

TEXpress lanes are toll lanes that are built within an existing highway. They add additional capacity to the highway to accommodate more traffic and relieve congestion. Unlike other toll roads, the price changes based on the level of traffic in the corridor to maintain a minimum 50 mph speed.

The TEXpress lanes are fairly new to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and are unlike other toll roads in North Texas or throughout the state. It is the driver’s choice to drive in the TEXpress lanes and pay the tolls or to drive in the adjacent non-tolled general highway lanes.
