Transportation

Highland Village is bound by FM 407 on the south, Lake Lewisville on the north, I-35E on the east and Chinn Chapel Road on the west.

Road Construction
I-35E
The 35Express project extends approximately 30 miles, through eight cities and two counties, from US 380 in Denton County to I-635 in Dallas County. The Design-Build project is expected to relieve traffic congestion in one of the most heavily traveled corridors in the North Texas region. Stay up to date with road closures, lane shifts and construction updates by signing up for notifications on the 35Express website. View the Project Animation for a visual of Phase 1 completion. 

One of the highlights of the project is the construction of managed lanes down the middle of the interstate. Managed or tolled lanes give motorists another option when traveling during peak times. The lanes will have dynamic pricing, which means the cost to use the managed lanes will vary depending on the time of day and roadway congestion.

Other highlights of construction include:
  • Additional general purpose lanes
  • Reconstruction of the Belt Line Road interchange and FM 407
  • New shared path for pedestrians and cyclists across the Lewisville Lake bridge, and
  • Construction of a new southbound bridge over Lewisville Lake.
SB 1420 Committee
Senate Bill 1420 added Transportation Code, Section 228.013 requiring that the distribution of the project's financial risk, the method of financing for the project, and the tolling structure and methodology must be determined by a SB 1420 Committee.

Denton County Transportation Authority
Residents of Highland Village, along with Denton and Lewisville, voted to initiate a 1/2 cent sales tax designated for a regional transportation system. The Denton County Transportation Authority provides bus service through the member cities and to downtown Dallas. DCTA's rail service, the A-train, connecting it's member cities to DART, is now in service. The Highland Village/Lewisville Lake station located at I-35E and Garden Ridge Boulevard serves Highland Village residents. DCTA RSVP bus service can be scheduled for transportation to and from the station, as well as on site station parking. Both local and regional passes can be purchased at the Highland Village Municipal Complex. More information is available from DCTA.
