FWIW, I drove down the dreaded 635, from Central Expressway (U.S. 75) to beyond I-35E, today, and hardly had to dip below the speed limit (60 mph) the entire distance (the main congestion was at the Mix Master on 75). That was about 1:35 P.M.

Isn't the Mixmaster the exchange between I-30 and I-35?

I-75 at 635 is the "High Five".
Down town Dallas Highway is known as the "Mix master".
Down town Fort Worth Highway is known as "The Fort Worth Mix master".

Right. I drove 635 from the High Five all the way out to Southlake, several miles West of I-35E. The only significant congestion was at the High Five.

Thanks again for the suggestions, if the time is cutting it too close I will just take 69 off of 20 and go 380 over to 287 so I dont have to worry about too much traffic.
If you go through Dallas that time, it's usually not a problem, but some jackass could crash anywhere at anytime and jam up the whole mess. But route 20 is well south of the city so that's a lot better bet than say 30/80/75/35E/635. My opin is at that time, 20-287 will be a piece of cake, and even if there is wreck, you can always get off the highway and back on cuz major streets in DFW are like little highways 3 lanes and a median.

I'd do 20-287 myself. Just keep a look at your traffic map.
