Bush Turnpike Fourth Lane Project Rolling Along In October

NTTA is on a roll to widen the President George Bush Turnpike to four lanes. Construction crews have placed the foundation for the new concrete lanes that are currently under construction in both directions of the Bush Turnpike between Dallas North Tollway and Coit Road.

The foundation is an asphalt layer that will support the reinforcing steel for the new lanes. After construction crews place reinforcing steel, concrete will be poured, and the fourth lane will be constructed in this area.

You might also notice crews along other parts of the Bush Turnpike. The next section is being prepared for construction as crews move along the Bush Turnpike from Coit Road to U.S. 75. These crews will start removing soil and debris to build the fourth lane.

Construction of the fourth lane on the Bush Turnpike includes widening the roadway from Interstate 35E to State Highway 78 to four lanes. The project is being built in phases. Phase 1, currently under construction, will add the fourth lane between the Dallas North Tollway and U.S. 75. Phase 2, which will begin in late 2016, will continue the fourth lane from the Tollway to Interstate 35E and from U.S. 75 to State Highway 78. The entire 26-mile project is anticipated to be complete in 2019. For more information on this project, visit
