Mix-Master gets makeover

Posted: Updated:

Getting into downtown Dallas will be even more of a challenge over the next four years, though officials say there will be benefits at the end.

The interchange known as the "Mix-master" is being replaced by "the Horseshoe."

State transportation officials say it will not only connect I-30 to I-35E, it'll make it easier for drivers who are approaching downtown from the east.

The nearly 800-million dollar project is also expected to created a wider corridor into Oak Cliff.

John Barton of TXDOT said these highways where they come together will be more of an interchange rather than a roadblock and when it's completed we'll have up to 23 traffic lanes including some HOV lanes coursing through this area.

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and should be finished at some point in 2017.
