It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like a Fourth Lane

We know your schedules are busy with holiday shopping, parties and pageants. Our elves (a.k.a. construction crews) will be busy too, as work will continue into the holiday season so that we can give you the gift you’ve been waiting for – four lanes on the Dallas North Tollway between the President George Bush Turnpike and the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

We began work to add a fourth lane to the tollway in June 2015. The additional lane between Interstate 635 and the President George Bush Turnpike is now open. Crews continue working overnight to complete minor touchups in that area.

Crews are also working to replace the median barrier south of I-635 and to complete the fourth lane between the Bush Turnpike and the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

Here’s a little more detail about construction that could affect your commute:

Dallas North Tollway between the Sam Rayburn Tollway and the President George Bush Turnpike Interchange

Crews in this area are hard at work, so closures and lane shifts will be ongoing throughout December. Stay alert on your commute, as traffic patterns may shift day to day. Be sure to watch ProgressNTTA.org for more information about upcoming ramp openings and traffic shifts.

Dallas North Tollway between Interstate 635 and Downtown Dallas

Progress continues along the south end of the tollway. Construction crews continue to remove the existing barrier between Forest Lane and Walnut Hill Lane and between Northwest Highway and Lovers Lane. New barrier will be installed in both locations once the existing barrier has been removed.

Most of the construction on the south end of the tollway will happen during off-peak hours – at night and on weekends. Lane and ramp closures will be needed to complete this work.

President George Bush Turnpike between State Highway 78 and U.S. 75 and between the Dallas North Tollway and Interstate 35E

It’s been almost six months since crews began widening the Bush Turnpike. Work has been moving quickly to relocate plants in the median, set up the work zone and excavate and prepare the road for new pavement.

This month, crews will begin pouring concrete between west of U.S. 75 and the Shiloh Road Main Lane Toll Gantry and between west of the Dallas North Tollway and the Frankford Road Main Lane Toll Gantry. The fourth lane between SH 78 and U.S. 75 is expected to open to traffic in mid-2019; while the fourth lane between the DNT and I-35E is scheduled to open in late 2019.
