Five years after the project was awarded, the $666 million Southern Gateway Project along I-35 and U.S. 67 in Southern Dallas has been completed—and is now open to traffic. Led by Irving’s Fluor Corporation in a joint venture with Balfour Beatty Infrastructure, the 10-mile-long TxDOT project included the reconstruction and widening of lanes on I-35E between U.S. 67 and I-30 and on U.S. 67 between I-20 and I-35E. Along this stretch of I-35, phase one of Southern Gateway Park—a sprawling planned deck park near the Dallas Zoo—has been decked out for its continuing construction.
“This is one of the many vital infrastructure projects to improve the I-35E corridor in Dallas in response to business and population expansion in one of the country’s most dynamic regions,” Thomas Nilsson, president of Fluor’s Infrastructure business, said in a statement. “The reconstruction provides traffic congestion relief, improved safety and increased mobility. This project builds on Fluor’s history of successfully delivering vital infrastructure in Texas and reinforces the strength of our commitment to our state and local partners.”
