Further north the elevated structure gains more altitude.

The tollway crosses a levee and makes a ditch crossing.

The tollway alignment is next to Luna Road as we get close to Belt Line Road.

This view looks north from Belt Line Road.

A view along Luna road just north of Belt Line. The Tollway and Luna Road diverge at this point.

Looking north at Sandy Lake Road. The tollway is no longer on an elevated viaduct at this point and this will be a conventional overcrossing. In the background you can just barely see the connection ramps at the interchange with IH 35E. The super connector ends at IH 35E, where it joins with the existing section of the 190 Bush Turnpike.
