MESQUITE – The work to open the new location of the southbound I-635 direct connector ramp to eastbound I-30, originally set for Saturday morning, Dec. 18, will be rescheduled for a later date.
Labeled as Exit 8B along southbound I-635, access to the connector ramp to eastbound I-30 will be shifted north closer to Galloway Avenue. Drivers may access the new direct connector by remaining in the right lane along southbound I-635 and follow signs for Exit 8B toward Texarkana. (Refer to Exhibit Attachment).
An explainer video regarding accessing the new ramp is also available here: https://bit.ly/3pU5tdF
