    A proposed expansion of Northeast Loop 820 from 183 to I-35W gets cleared for construction.

    The Star-Telegram has a great write up on all the details about the expansion.

    820 would be expaned from four-lanes to six nontoll and four toll/carpool/HOV lanes from North East Mall to I-35 W.

    This is all part of a larger proposed "North Tarrant Express" which would expand I-35W from Meacham to Alliance airports, and expand Loop 820 and Airport Freeway (121/183) from I-35W to DFW Airport. That proposal may cost more than $1 billion dollars.
