LBJ TEXpress galleries

After four years of barricades, orange cones and blinking lights, the LBJ Express project is now officially open.

The new toll lanes, called TEXpress, are being hailed as the answer to congestion on 635. Traffic-weary drivers certainly hope so.

Late last week the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and two contractors started hauling away more than 28 million pounds of rock debris from the site of a rockslide two months ago along Interstate 35 between Oklahoma City and Dallas.

The 14,000 tons of rock from the June 18 collapse will be hauled away over the next several weeks, and ODOT says all lanes of Interstate 35 should be reopened by the end of August.
