NTE I-35W Project

The North Tarrant Express includes 23.4 miles of NTE TEXpress Lanes:

  • 13.3 miles of NTE TEXpress Lanes run east and west on Northeast Loop 820 and SH-121/183 Airport Freeway, from I-35W on 820 to Industrial Boulevard on SH-121/183
  • 10.1 miles of NTE TEXpress Lanes flow north and south on I-35W from downtown Fort Worth north to past US 287

As with all other TEXpress Lanes throughout North Texas, this project was designed to improve the efficiency of the highway system by offering drivers a reliable choice during heavy congestion between the general highway lanes and two NTE TEXpress Lanes in each direction.

Reconstruction of I-35W

10.1 miles of new TEXpress Lanes from downtown Fort Worth to north of US 287 will increase the capacity of the highway, reduce traffic congestion and give drivers more control over your daily commute.

Your Experience Enhanced

The I-35W project consists of reconstructed interchanges, adds additional highway capacity and includes upgraded existing facilities to optimize operations.

The Choice of a Faster Commute

I-35W drivers can choose use the improved free lanes, or to pay for a faster and more reliable commute on the new NTE TEXpress Lanes. The choice is up to you on how you want to cruise.

A New 35W Coming Soon

All 10.1 miles of NTE TEXpress Lanes on I-35W from the I-30/downtown interchange to Heritage Trace Parkway are open. Direct connector ramps from I-30 east and into downtown Fort Worth are slated for a late 2018 opening.

Fixed pricing for first 6 months

Fixed Pricing for 6 Months

The NTE TEXpress Lanes on I-35W have fixed time-of-day pricing for the first six months of operation, then change to fluctuating congestion-management pricing in October 2018 to keep traffic flowing 24/7.
