Capital Express Project
TxDOT is currently working on 10 stand-alone projects between RM 1431 and SH 45SE, including:
- RM 1431 to FM 3406
- FM 3406 to US 79
- US 79 to SH 45N
- SH 45N to Grand Avenue Parkway
- Wells Branch Parkway
- Parmer Lane
- Rundberg Lane to US 290E
- 51st Street
- Oltorf Street
- Stassney Lane to William Cannon Drive
The Capital Express project would add two non-tolled managed lanes in each direction and address all remaining safety and mobility improvements proposed under the Mobility35 Program that were not already included in the above stand-alone projects.
Two alternatives are being considered, a non-tolled managed lane build alternative and a no-build alternative. The build alternative could include placing the non-tolled managed lanes under the mainlanes where right of way is limited, providing direct access between the non-tolled managed lanes and frontage road, removing the upper decks from Martin Luther King Boulevard to Airport Boulevard and lowering I-35 through downtown.
