Interstate 35E (abbreviated I-35E), an interstate highway, is the eastern half of Interstate 35 where it splits to serve different cities in Texas. I-35 splits into two branch routes, I-35W and I-35E at Hillsboro. I-35E runs north for convert|97|mi|km|0|lk=on, maintaining I-35's sequence of exit numbers. It runs through Dallas before rejoining with I-35W to reform I-35 in Denton.

Historically, other interstates were given directional suffixes. On every other interstate, the directional suffixes were phased out by giving the route a loop or spur designation. In the case of I-35, since both branches return to a unified interstate beyond the twin cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, the AASHTO committees allowed the suffixes to remain.

Major cities

Concurrent Routes

U.S. Highway 67

Interstate 35E runs concurrent with U.S. Highway 67 from just north of Kiest Boulevard in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas to the Interstate 30 interchange in downtown Dallas. From there, U.S. Highway 67 joins with Interstate 30. On both segments, U.S. Highway 67 is not signed.

U.S. Highway 77

From Waco, Texas to El Dorado, Kansas, Interstate 35 (or Interstate 35E) typically runs concurrent with, or lies fairly close to, U.S. Highway 77. US 77 runs parallel to I-35E after splitting off of Interstate 35 north of Hillsboro, running through Italy and Milford. It joins with I-35E for less than a mile just south of Waxahachie, before splitting back off to run through Waxahachie. It rejoins the interstate just north of a junction with State Highway 342 in Red Oak. US 77 stays with the interstate through Dallas and up to the southeastern section of Denton. US 77 then breaks off, rejoining I-35 north of the city. Except for the spur sections (Denton and the section between Red Oak and Hillsboro), U.S. Highway 77 is not signed.

Designations

From South Dallas to Downtown Dallas, I-35E is called the R.L. Thornton Freeway, which continues as I-30 from downtown to East Dallas. Only after the Mixmaster interchange with I-30 that I-35E takes up the name Stemmons Freeway all the way up to Lewisville.

Auxiliary routes

*Interstate 635, while technically a spur of I-35, only intersects I-35E and neither I-35 nor I-35W.
