Here's a tip for our friends heading to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington Friday afternoon from the Dallas area on Opening Day: the new managed HOV lane on Interstate 30 will be open. The lane will be available Saturday and Sunday, too.
The lane dead-ends at a T-shaped intersection at the Legends Way/Baird Farm Road bridge, and from there motorists are taken directly into the Rangers' parking area. If you have two or more people in the car, it's a neat way to go.
The T-shaped ramp will be open westbound from 1-3 p.m., and eastbound (for post-game traffic) from 5:30 to 8 p.m. For more info, check out the Dallas Area Rapid Transit website.
