Construction on I-35W in Fort Worth is part of the North Tarrant Express/I-35W project. It is a 10.1-mile project rebuilding the I-35W corridor from Interstate 30 in downtown to U.S. Highway 287 Decatur cutoff in Northeast Tarrant County.
This area is one of the most congested highways in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The construction is to rebuild the main lanes, expand the frontage lanes and four toll lanes are being installed. The work should be completed in 2018. In order for workers to meet this goal, there is construction along the entire stretch of the project.
