Commissioner Daniel and Commissioner Cantrell joined Garland Mayor Athas and councilmembers to celebrate the opening of the new frontage road along Interstate 635 East on August 6.

The $10 million highway project consists of restructuring the Centerville exit ramp, and the addition of a service road. The Texas Department of Transportation project represents a small portion of a larger project being developed to reconstruct and reconfigure I-635 East from U.S. Highway 75 to Interstate 30. The Interstate 635 East project is expected to increase economic development and improve traffic flow in the area.
