DFW, TX – August 31, 2017– Today the LBJ TEXpress, North Tarrant TEXpress and NTE 35W TEXpress committed to donate $45,000 from tolls collected from the TEXpress Lanes on Saturday, September 2nd to go to the American Red Cross in support of those impacted by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.
“We have friends, family and colleagues with all those people in Southeast Texas in the midst of the devastation caused by this hurricane,” explained North Texas CEO, Alberto Gonzalez. “We felt like we needed to do something and we know the American Red Cross touches every aspect of a disaster relief effort, especially one of this magnitude.”
Drivers will begin seeing information on digital message boards throughout the LBJ, NTE and 35W corridors telling them how to participate on Saturday. The concessions will also post on social media and project websites: ntetexpress.com lbjtexpress.com northtarrantexpress.com
