Construction on I-35W is Complete
The project was designed to help with traffic flow. The Texas Department of Transportation found that section of I-35W was actually one of the most congested corridors in the state. The highway is now moving 20,000 more vehicles than pre-construction. The infrastructure, which was 60 years old, is now rebuilt with a 21st-century design and safety standards. Capacity was almost doubled, existing lanes were reconstructed and toll lanes were added in each direction.
“This is part of a much larger system. You’re seeing a system of transportation projects that basically in the backbone of the Dallas-Fort Worth region connects Fort Worth over to the fast-growing Dallas suburbs and not coincidentally connecting to DFW Airport, our largest economic generator,” said Michael Morris with the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
