    The road was built more than 40 years ago, but handles three times the amount of traffic it was designed for. The bumper-to-bumper traffic continues right up through the intersecting Interstate 35W.

    Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief said construction should begin on the $1 billion project in mid- to late 2009.

    There are no estimates on how long it will take to complete.
