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.
