Lowest Stemmons Project

Postby joshua.dodd » 01 May 2017 11:53

The Lowest Stemmons Project is bringing a much needed upgrade to a 3.4 mile portion of 35 in the city of Dallas. With 240,000 cars a day, and infrastructure that is long obsolete, this section of freeway is in desperate need for an upgrade. This section of freeway has not been reconfigured since it was built in the late 1950s.

Here is a photograph of the section of freeway in 1960. Notice how it is comparatively the same today.

Fortunately, that upgrade is on the way:
