CLOSURES ON SH-121/183

 

Fort Worth, Texas  – On Wednesday, March 14, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following closures will be in place:

  • 3 Entrance ramps to and including the westbound NTE TEXpress Lanes on SH-121/183 between Industrial Blvd and Central Drive will be closed.
  • Full closure of the direct connector from eastbound SH-183 to northbound SH-121.
  • Closure of the Exit 23A Airport Fwy North Entrance ramp to eastbound NTE TEXpress Lanes on SH-121/183.

This work is weather-permitting. Updated closure information is posted daily on Twitter (@NTExpress) and Facebook (facebook.com/northtarrantexpress).

The $2.1 billion North Tarrant Express project, which began in 2010 and was completed in October 2015, included the reconstruction of expanded frontage lanes and main lanes, as well as the addition of bypass lanes and TEXpress managed lanes along IH 820 and SH 121/183 between 35W in Fort Worth and Industrial Boulevard (FM 156) in Euless.  This expansive reconstruction project is successfully alleviating traffic congestion along one of the busiest highway corridors in the North Texas and the state, with as many as 200,000 cars traveling the stretch daily.

 

Drivers are encouraged to “Know Before They Go,” and visit www.ntetexpress.com or (@NTExpress) and (facebook.com/northtarrantexpress).) for upcoming closures. Closures are subject to weather conditions, and construction activities may be postponed if necessary.
