The project will provide direct access for residents of the northern Tarrant County region to employment opportunities in the Fort Worth central business district.
North Tarrant Express 35W, Segment 3A consists of 10.2 miles of I-35W located north of Fort Worth, Texas. The project spans from north of I-30 to north of I-820 through a regionally supported managed lane system. The project is being designed and built concurrently to accelerate the project schedule by several years. When complete, the project will improve mobility by almost doubling the existing road capacity to 145,000 annual average daily traffic with a combination of general purpose lanes and continuous frontage roads, along with managed toll lanes that will use dynamic pricing to keep traffic moving.
The design-build team is responsible for the design and construction of 10.2 miles of urban highway with two three-lane general purpose lanes, two two-lane managed lanes, frontage roads, entrance and exit ramps, five cross streets, two major stream crossings and 25 bridges (17 highway overpass structures, three highway underpass structures, two braided ramp structures and three direct connectors).
