LBJ/I-635 Independent Engineering-Owner Verification Testing
Dallas, Texas

HVJ provided Owner Verification Testing for IH-635 (LBJ Freeway) Managed HOV Lanes. The project included adding managed HOV lanes from Luna Road to the High Five including full reconstruction of IH-635 from IH-35E to the High Five; adding elevated managed HOV lane connectors along IH-35E from Loop 12 to IH-635; adding operational improvements on the IH-635 managed HOV lanes within the High Five.

This project was the most regionally significant transportation improvement project in North Texas. Because congestion relief was badly needed in this area of North Texas, the project was delivered utilizing innovative financing and construction methods to expedite completion.
