NTE I-35W Project

The North Tarrant Express along the Northeast Loop 820 and Airport Freeway is fully operational and the focus is on the reconstruction of I-35W from downtown Fort Worth north to US 287.

Separated into two phases, this 10.1-mile project will relieve congestion, improve safety and provide for anticipated traffic growth in one of the country’s fastest developing regions and interstate highways in the country.

  • Phase 1:           I-820 to US 287 – most of Phase 1 is now open, while the remaining northern section will open in late 2017
  • Phase 2:           Downtown Fort Worth to the I-820 interchange – will be completed in 2018

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 TEXpress Lanes in each direction.
