Building begins on extension of Dallas North Tollway in Texas

Work has begun on the fourth section of extending the Dallas North Tollway 13.7 miles, a part of a $2 billion five-year transportation enchancment plan.

The North Texas Tollway Authority stories that building has began on a bridge to increase the tollway over U.S. 380 into Prosper, Texas.

“This challenge is step one in an essential northern enlargement of the Dallas North Tollway,” mentioned Elizabeth Mow, NTTA assistant government director of infrastructure. “Because the communities in Prosper and Celina proceed to develop, the DNT will likely be a crucial path for these drivers to the place they should go.”

In future tasks, the tollway will likely be prolonged to FM 428 in Celina. The authority says the extensions will scale back site visitors congestion in Frisco and Prosper. Environmental engineering work continues on that section of the challenge.

NTTA says the tollway extension is a part of its five-year, $2 billion capital plan for enchancment and enlargement tasks throughout North Texas to scale back site visitors congestion and deal with the rising inhabitants.

The entire Section 4 challenge will present a hyperlink between downtown Dallas and rising areas in Colin, Denton and Grayson counties.
