North Tarrant Express Construction

820/183 highway interchange

Construction activity is coming soon to the North Tarrant Express (NTE) Corridor, which spans 13 miles from Fort Worth through Haltom City, North Richland Hills, Hurst, Bedford and Euless to Irving on NE Loop 820 and SH 183. This project will increase capacity by adding one more lane in each direction. Between Boulevard 26 and I35W there will be one more general purpose (non-toll) lane in each direction. From Northeast Mall east to Industrial Boulevard there will be one more managed (tolled) lane in each direction. 

The original North Tarrant Express project, completed in 2014, almost doubled capacity in the corridor. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) planned for additional capacity improvements to be made to the corridor once traffic activity reached a certain level. The average daily traffic has exceeded traffic projections eight years sooner than anticipated, triggering the lane additions which are a part of the contractual requirements. 

Pre-construction activities, including installing construction barriers and striping lanes, began in November with full construction to be underway in 2024. Most of the construction activities will be undertaken overnight to minimize disruption to motorists. The project is scheduled to take 42 months, with completion anticipated in early 2027.

TxDOT will not be acquiring additional land for this project. The new lanes will fit within the corridor’s existing right of way. The project is being funded with toll revenue.
