Project Timeline


We are nearing 97 percent completion of the North Tarrant Express' 13.3-mile corridor, which is anticipated to be completed in early October 2014 - nearly nine months ahead of schedule.

Road work will continue to affect traffic conditions during your daily commute, so we encourage you to check back regularly for updates on the construction schedule as well as current and upcoming lane closures.

The project timeline information below will be updated on a monthly basis, typically following the monthly project team construction meeting, which takes place on the first or second Friday of each month.
