NTE TEXpress Lanes Overview and Maps

Project Overview

The 13.3 miles of TEXpress Lanes on the North Tarrant Express project are part of a sophisticated new tollway system, designed to provide drivers with faster, more reliable trips and no stop-and-go driving.

TEXpress Lanes on I-820

In addition to upgraded general highway lanes and expanded continuous frontage roads, four new TEXpress Lanes have been added to the middle of I-820 (Northeast Loop), from the North East Mall interchange to I-35W.

TEXpress Lanes on SH-121/183

SH-121/183 (Airport Freeway) features four new TEXpress Lanes, from the North East Mall interchange to Industrial Boulevard, along with upgraded general highway lanes and expanded continuous frontage roads.

The North Tarrant Express project and its 13.3 miles of TEXpress Lanes are now open. You can travel the NTE TEXpress Lanes from I-35W across I-820 (Northeast Loop) to SH-121/183 (Airport Freeway), just beyond the SH-121 split, with no stop-and-go traffic along the way.
