    The turnpike now extends 10 miles further to the east out of Garland.

    A tollway extension in the Dallas area has opened as a new east-side link to Interstate 30.

    The North Texas Tollway Authority late Wednesday opened the President George Bush Turnpike eastern extension from northwest Garland.

    Construction on the $958 million project began in the summer of 2008.

    NTTA says the nearly 10-mile eastern extension is part of the outer loop around Dallas and its suburbs. The corridor runs through Garland, Sachse and Rowlett.
