On April 26, 2012, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announced the shortlist for the proposed IH 35E Managed Lanes Project in Dallas and Denton Counties. The shortlisted teams were selected based on qualification statements submitted on March 23, 2012 in response to the request for qualifications (RFQ) issued by TxDOT on January 23, 2012.
The RFQ solicited separate qualification statements from teams with experience in design-build and toll concession contracting. TxDOT decided to move forward with the design-build alternative with a capital maintenance option. The four shortlisted teams and their respective equity members are:
- Archer Western Contractors, LLC
- Granite Construction Company
- The LANE Construction Company
Dallas to Denton Constructors

IH 35E serves the rapidly growing areas of southern and central Denton County, as well as major Dallas suburbs. Since it opened as part of the original national interstate program almost 50 years ago, the northern portion of the corridor has been under a constant state of maintenance, upgrade, expansion, evaluation, planning, design and construction.
