"This North Tarrant Express 35W project includes a 6.5-mile section that is currently ranked 23rd on the state's most congested roadways list. Ranked sixth when construction began in 2013, this section of I-35W from north of I-30 to north of I-820 including the I-35W/I-820 interchange in Fort Worth is already seeing traffic improvements with the reconstruction of main lanes and the addition of TEXpress Lanes," developers said.
