The Texas Department of Transportation has proposed allowing single occupant vehicles to travel in the existing HOV lanes on I-635 from US 75 to I-30 – for a fee. The proposed project would create “express lanes” and collect tolls on single occupant vehicles along that stretch of LBJ, which extends east of Central Expressway.

The project will cost $9 million, with construction to begin in 2015 and last about one year.

TXDOT hosted a public meeting to discuss the changes, which will include construction of toll gantries, signage, and pavement widening to permit enforcement. To learn more, you can visit the TXDOT website here.
