A full freeway shutdown is planned as part of the $1.7 billion 635 East project, to widen and improve Interstate 635 over the 11 miles between Central Expressway and Interstate 30.

I-30 will be closed in both directions at Galloway Avenue from 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, to noon on Sunday, Jan. 24. Connector ramps from westbound I-30 to I-635 and from I-635 to eastbound I-30 will also be closed at that time. Various lanes of both directions of I-635 over the full 11 miles of the project will be closed between 8 p.m. and 5 p.m. each night through Sunday, Jan. 24.

The rebuild of the I-635/I-30 interchange is a major component of the ongoing project. Various lanes of Oates Drive and the entrance ramp to northbound I-635 from Oates Drive will be closed from 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20, to 5 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 21.

Near the interchange, the Northwest Drive entrance ramp to westbound I-30 and the eastbound I-30 exit to Northwest Drive have been closed permanently. The I-30 HOV lane is closed between Northwest Drive on the Garland side of I-635 and Jim Miller Road in Dallas. I-30 HOV lanes between Jim Miller Road and downtown Dallas remain open. 

The HOV/Express managed toll lanes on I-635 between Oates Drive and TI Boulevard also remain closed until the project is completed. The rebuilt tolled managed lanes will have shoulders and be separated from the main lanes by concrete barriers.
