NTE I-35W Project

The North Tarrant Express includes 10.1 miles of NTE TEXpress Lanes on I-35W from downtown Fort Worth north to just past US 287. These lanes connect to the NTE TEXpress Lanes that run east and west on Northeast Loop 820 and SH-121/183 Airport Freeway.

As with all other TEXpress Lanes in North Texas, this project will improve the efficiency of the highway system by offering drivers a reliable choice during heavy congestion between the general highway lanes and two new NTE TEXpress Lanes in each direction.

To view the weekly fixed pricing charts for the NTE TEXpress Lanes on I-35W, click here. In October 2018, toll pricing on I-35W will become variable to keep the lanes moving at a minimum of 50 mph during peak travel periods.
