Drivers and Traffic and Construction – Oh My!

In the second installment of our three-part series, we’re bringing you another time-saving tip to help you ease on down the road.

Want to instantly raise your CommuterQ (Commuter Intelligence Quotient) Start by getting the inside scoop on which major roads are under construction and how that work may affect your drive.

Even a scarecrow will feel smart by subscribing to our quarterly Corridor Progress Reports and Progress NTTA updates. Here’s the 4-1-1:

Every quarter, we publish an overview, including timelines, of current and future major road projects. Insider secret: Our reports aren’t just about our roads. We also update you on major road projects that don’t belong to NTTA. We want to help you be an informed driver, including on road work underway or in the planning stages by our transportation partners. Click below to read our most recent progress reports:

Northern extension of the Dallas North Tollway
Improvements to the existing portions of the Dallas North Tollway
Widening of the President George Bush Turnpike
Widening of the Sam Rayburn Tollway Fourth Lane (Read more about that below.)
Non-NTTA major road projects

While our Corridor Progress Reports offer great high-level updates, you’ll want to dig into our Progress NTTA newsletter for more detailed information, including upcoming lane closures and photos of us getting our hands dirty.

Another insider secret: You can tap into one of these reports to find out which new project we’re starting in just a few months.

Because we have a heart, we’re going to let you peek behind the curtain: We’re going to widen the entire length of the 26-mile Sam Rayburn Tollway from three lanes to four lanes in each direction. We’ll be starting construction in early 2019.

If you want to stay in-the-know about this project, be sure to subscribe to our progress report and Progress NTTA newsletter.

In the next edition of TollTag Insider, we share more ways you can increase your CommuterQ and have more courage to take on traffic.
