About the NTE


The North Tarrant Express/I-35W project reconstructed a 10.1-mile stretch of I-35W from downtown Fort Worth to US 287 in Fort Worth. This project is relieving congestion, improving safety and providing for anticipated traffic growth in one of the country’s fastest developing regions.

The project is improving the efficiency of the highway system by offering drivers a reliable choice between the general highway lanes and new TEXpress “toll managed” Lanes. The project consists of reconstructed interchanges, service roads, and by-pass lanes, and upgraded existing facilities to optimize operations.

Construction began in 2013 on the northern segment (north of I-820) and was completed in 2017. Construction on the southern segment (south of I-820) began in 2014 and was completed two months ahead of schedule in the fall of 2018

In partnership with local communities and the state, NTE Mobility Partners is committed to developing and operating the safest, most advanced and reliable roadways for drivers and their families.
