New Exit to Preston/Parkwood in Your Future

 

 

We’ve been working to keep up with the explosive growth in North Texas by adding lanes to our most traveled roads: the Dallas North Tollway, the President George Bush Turnpike and now the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT). More lanes means less congestion and better traffic flow.

This summer, we’ll build a new SRT bridge over Parkwood Boulevard as part of the work to widen the toll road.

If you’re sweating the idea of construction on your favorite route, we understand. And we’ll keep you posted about any related closures and recommended detours.

It will take about two years to finish all the work on the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

Once it’s finished, your drive should be noticeably better.

The SRT ramps to the Dallas North Tollway and Preston Road will get major improvements. New ramps will separate traffic for drivers exiting from eastbound SRT to Preston Road and for drivers entering the SRT from Dallas North Tollway. See the graphics below for details.

As work begins later this summer, much of it will take place in the grassy median between the SRT main lanes and the frontage road. But as work progresses, various lane and ramp closures will be needed.

We will post information about the closures on social media, NTTA.org and ProgressNTTA.org.

As always, if you have questions, comments or concerns, please contact us at progressntta@ntta.org or by phone at 972-628-3134.

The map above shows the current ramp traffic flow from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road. Drivers entering the SRT from the DNT merge before the Preston Road exit.

The map above shows the future configuration of this SRT/DNT interchange, which includes a new bridge for SRT drivers exiting to Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road (shown in yellow). These drivers will be able to exit before motorists from the DNT merge onto SRT. Drivers coming from the DNT will continue to have access to exit to Preston Road.
