The first phase of the new LBJ Express Project opens Saturday.
It covers a 3.2-mile stretch of lanes on Interstate 635 between Preston Road and Greenville Avenue.
In addition to new free lanes, several TEXpress toll lanes will be available for a fee. That fee will vary depending on traffic congestion and vehicle size.
However, the TEXpress lanes are said to flow at speeds of 50 to 70 mph even during rush hour.
The entire 13-mile project along I-635 is expected to be completed in a year.
