LBJ Express A P3 Benchmark

Cintra’s LBJ Express managed lanes toll road was opened to traffic in north Dallas three months ahead of schedule on September 10, marking another major P3 milestone in Texas for developer-operator Cintra and its sister company, Ferrovial Agroman.

According to Russell Zapalac, Chief Planning & Project Officer for Texas DOT, neither Texas DOT nor Ferrovial requested any change orders to the $2-billion design-build contract signed in 2011 to rebuild 16 miles of I-635 and I-35E  north of Dallas. Among other things, 10 miles of cantilevered structures were built under traffic that peaked in the corridor at about 270,000 vehicles per day.
