The Southern Gateway project rebuilt and expanded the freeway from the Trinity River to south of US 67. All lanes, including the express lanes, were open in September 2022. New photos are included showing the impressive new freeway.

Photos of the original freeway from the Trinity River bridge to the US 67 split have been moved to the I-35E South photo archive page. The downtown Horseshoe project was completed in 2017.

The older photos south of US 67 are still accurate.
