Interstate 635 Texas

Interstate 635, also known as the Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway (or LBJ for short) is arguably Dallas' most infamous interstate. Especially between Interstate 35E and U.S. 75, the highway is prone to backups at all hours of the day. Interstate 635 makes up a loop on the eastern and northern sides of Dallas, connecting Interstate 20 to Interstate 30, U.S. 75, Interstate 35E, and TX 121. The interstate is signed east-west between TX 121 and U.S. 75, and is signed north-south between Interstate 20 and U.S. 75.

Northbound/Westbound
Interstate 635 North at Exit 11B - Northwest
Highway/Shiloh Rd. Northwest Highway
is a major thoroughfare through north
Dallas. It begins at TX 114 and eventually
winds its way to its other end at Belt Line
Rd., five miles to the southeast. Parts of
Spur 348, Loop 12, and Spur 244 make up
the Northwest Highway. Shiloh Rd, on the
other hand, is a north-south arterial through
west Garland and east Plano. (Photo taken

Interstate 635 North at Exit 13 - Jupiter Rd./
Kingsley Rd. This exit sign is missing its

streets are arterials, with Jupiter running
north-south and Kingsley going east-west.
