New PDF with project info posted;http://www.35express.org/35Express_Update_Oct2013.pdf
the PDF describes what will be done in Phase 1. I don't like what I see. While there will be major improvements, especially to the northern portion, the southern portion will not really improve.
No new mainlanes in southern segment
No replacement of Corporate interchange. The current cloverleaf is a gridlocked clusterf***. Traffic on cloverleaf ramps cannot get out onto NB frontage rd due to heavy traffic.
Belt Line interchange looks interesting. However, on Beltline, it looks like it would be a steep climb to go from ground level at Broadway to going over the BNSF Madill Sub. (esp since RR's require a high clearance)
Southern segment HOV lanes to convert to Managed lanes. I guess making them both go the direction of heaviest traffic will help a little, but not much.
Much needed reconfiguration of the US 77/ San Jacinto/ LOOP 288 area not included.
Doesn't mention any frontage road replacement in Denton. The ones between LP 288 and Mayhill are very narrow and unsafe.
