The LBJ Express Highway
Cintra, a Ferrovial subsidiary,
heads up the consortium which will operate this urban highway concession of 21.3 km, which bypasses the north of Dallas via the IH-635 between the US-75 and the IH-35E and a section of the interstate I-35E.
The construction, which started in 2011 and has been handled by Ferrovial Agroman
and Webber, has been carried out keeping the thoroughfare open to traffic while widening and improving the existing lanes, moving on to the service roads and building new dynamic toll lanes (managed lanes
) throughout the highway’s entire length.
