The Lowest Stemmons Project is a 2.3-mile Texas Clear Lanes project on I-35E from I-30 to north of Oak Lawn Avenue. The interim operational improvements consist of collector-distributor roads (north and southbound), direct connectors, and reconstructed ramps and bridge structures as necessary to accommodate the interim improvements. Construction completion is estimated for early 2020. The Lowest Stemmons Project is a break-out project from Project Pegasus. The goal of this project is to leverage existing funding from the Texas Clear Lanes Initiative to provide interim operational improvements to the congested I-35E corridor. The project will tie-in with the Horseshoe Project to the south and will be constructed inside the ultimate Project Pegasus Right-of-Way.
