The Proof is in the Concrete

Proof of progress can be spotted along the President George Bush Turnpike as trucks carrying the concrete that will form miles of additional lanes of the turnpike make deliveries between State Highway 78 and U.S. 75 and between the Dallas North Tollway and Interstate 35E.

Crews have already added fourth lanes in each direction to the Bush Turnpike between the Dallas North Tollway and U.S. 75. The new lanes are being added within the median. Drivers should expect lane closures.

The fourth lane between SH 78 and U.S. 75 is expected to open in mid-2019, and the fourth lane between the tollway and I-35E is scheduled to open in late 2019.

More Concrete Progress on the Dallas North Tollway

Drivers on some areas of the tollway between the Bush Turnpike and the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Plano are now using four lanes of traffic in each direction. The additional lanes were opened just before the holidays, as were some of the relocated entrance and exit ramps. This is a still a construction area. Please continue to observe lowered speed limits and other traffic advisory signs.

South of Interstate 635, crews have completed the installation of a new concrete median barrier between Harvest Hill Road and Forest Lane and between Lovers Lane and Mockingbird Lane.

Crews are now installing a new median barrier between Forest Lane and Walnut Hill Lane. The next area to get new barrier will be between Northwest Highway and Lovers Lane. Crews began replacing barriers along the south end of the tollway in April 2017 and are expected to be finished with the work by the end of 2018.

The work is part of planned, proactive maintenance to ensure our roads continue to provide a safe, reliable and comfortable ride.

Most of the work will be done during off-peak hours – at night and weekends. Lane closures will be needed to progress this work safely. We will announce the closures on social media, and information will be posted on
