NTE I-35W Project

The North Tarrant Express now includes 10.1 miles of NTE 35W 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 TEXpress Lanes in each direction.

The NTE 35W TEXpress Lanes use variable, congestion-management pricing to keep drivers moving at a minimum of 50mph at all times. Toll rates are higher during rush hours, and lower as the demand for TEXpress Lanes drop.
