Loop 820, Airport Freeway construction

 
If you live in Northeast Tarrant County, or drive through on a regular basis, the $2 billion North Tarrant Express road project is about to become a big part of your life for the next four to five years. But before you curse the impending traffic on Northeast Loop 820 and Texas 121/183, consider attending a public open house 2-8 p.m. Wednesday at the Hurst Conference Center, 1601 Campus Dr.NTE Project Map July 2010 

It’ll be an informal way to learn about how construction will be rolled out along the 13.5-mile corridor from Interstate 35W in north Fort Worth to Industrial Boulevard in Euless. The road work begins in earnest over the next several weeks. Although the contract with the developer, NTE Mobility Partners, places strict limits on closing lanes during the work week, the project will inevitably push additional traffic onto surrounding highways, and even thoroughfares in area cities.

Great......

I understand that this expansion has been a long time coming, but the traffic is going to be a major nightmare. You can guarantee the frustration levels will be sky high.

Lets hope most of the work is done at night and not during rush hour times.

I live in N. Forth Worth, and commute to the Euless/Grapevine Area daily. With the DFW Connector project, and now this, looks like I better update my ipod with some easy listening.

IT IS GREAT THAT THEY ARE EXPANDING THE HIGHWAY. I GUESS I HAVE TO LEAVE AN HOUR EARLY TO GET TO WORK.

I can't believe anyone that has to drive 820 on a regular basis would be saying anything negative about this construction project... Are you out of your mind? This is as close to a desperate need as I have ever seen in highway expansion. So stop whining and find an alternate route. Start the construction tomorrow! Please!!! And tolls? I don't care if I had to take a second job to pay for daily tolls. Bring it on!

Yes, this is needed. I would also like to see an increase in public tranportation. The rail needs more lines and more connections between those lines.
