The Basswood Boulevard entrance ramp to the NTE TEXpress lanes is now open.

The ramp is on the southbound I-35W/North Freeway frontage road. This left-hand on-ramp is located just past Basswood Boulevard.

Motorists can follow the TEXpress lanes to the I-35W/I-820 exit (the only exit open on southbound I-35W at this time) to the southbound I-35W general highway lanes with access to eastbound and westbound Northeast Loop 820 and Meacham Boulevard, the first available street.

More I-35W construction progress

The section of I-35W between I-820 and U.S. 81/287 is nearing completion. Significant construction work will continue for the next several weeks as the final pavement surface is prepared and placed throughout the three-mile project.

These entrance and exit ramps along I-35W are closed for an extended period:

  • Off-ramp from southbound I-35W to westbound Spur 280 (through December).
  • Northbound I-35W on-ramp at Northside Drive/Yucca Avenue (through mid-October).

On-ramps to southbound I-35W from Weatherford Street and Gilvin Street have reopened.
