Frequently Asked Questions - General Highway Lanes vs. TEXpress Lanes

TEXpress Lanes are designed for commuters who want the most reliable and time-saving trip to reach a destination such as work, home, a sporting event, or the airport. With traffic flowing at a minimum of 50 mph*, you can anticipate less frustration and no stop-and-go driving.

TEXpress Lanes are adjacent to the general highway lanes, but they have independent entrances and exits. TEXpress Lanes are both safe and easy to use.

TEXpress Lanes have concrete barriers or actual grade level difference that separate them from the adjacent general highway lanes, making driving on the lanes both safe and reliable. Because dedicated ramps guide you into and out of the TEXpress Lanes, you do not have to cross traffic lanes to access them.
