35W Project

With the completion of the North Tarrant Express along Northeast Loop 820 and Airport Freeway, focus has now shifted to the reconstruction of I-35W from downtown Fort Worth to US 287.

Separated into two phases, this 10.1-mile project will relieve congestion, improve safety and provide for anticipated traffic growth in one of the country’s fastest developing regions.

  • Phase 1:           I-820 to US 287 – completed in late 2017
  • Phase 2:           Downtown Fort Worth to the I-820 interchange – completed in 2018

The project will improve the efficiency of the highway system by offering drivers a reliable choice during heavy congestion between the general highway lanes and two new TEXpress Lanes in each direction.

Reconstruction of I-35W

10.1 miles of new TEXpress Lanes from downtown Fort Worth to US 287 will increase the capacity of the highway, reduce traffic congestion and give drivers more control over your daily commute.

Your Experience Enhanced

The project will reconstruct interchanges, add additional highway capacity, and upgrade existing facilities to optimize operations.

The Choice of a Faster Commute

Future 35W drivers will have the choice to use the improved free lanes, or to pay for a faster and more reliable commute along the new TEXpress Lanes. The choice is up to you on how you want to cruise.

A New 35W Coming Soon

Construction along 35W continues to make progress, with all work north of I-820 scheduled for completion in 2017 and construction south of I-820 scheduled for completion in 2018.
