Get a birdseye view of the entire North Tarrant Express project, which encompasses NTE TEXpress Lanes on Northeast Loop 820 and SH-121/183 Airport Freeway, as well as I-35W Phase 1. Because the NTE TEXpress Lanes were designed for commuters interested in getting from one end of the corridor to the other end as quickly as possible, there are a limited number of entrance ramps (in green) and exit ramps (in orange). Some of the ramps are located on the general highway lanes, while others such as US 377/Denton Highway and Industrial Boulevard can only be accessed from the frontage roads.
In addition, the NTE TEXpess Lanes are comprised of four separate tolling segments.
- Toll Segment 1 (in purple) on Northeast Loop 820 and SH-121/83, runs from I-35W to the Northeast Loop / Airport Freeway interchange
- Toll Segment 2 (in pale blue) begins at the Northeast Loop / Airport Freeway interchange and ends at Industrial Boulevard
- Toll Segment 3 (in gray/under construction and opens in 2018) on I-35W begins at I-30 and ends at I-820
- Toll Segment 4 (in dark blue) on I-35W runs from the I-820/35W interchange to north of US 287
Once you enter the NTE TEXpress Lanes, you will see pricing signs well in advance of the next tolling segment to help you decide whether to continue your trip or exit the lanes. For instance, if you enter the eastbound I-820 TEXpress Lanes at Iron Horse Boulevard and exit them at SH-121 North, you will incur charges for two tolling segments.
