From 2 to 8 p.m. April 25 at the Radisson Hotel Fort Worth North (2540 Meacham Blvd.), there will be updated schematics and animations on, and project experts to talk about construction on Northeast Loop 820 and Texas 121/183.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Other displays will highlight plans for the I-35W reconstruction that should begin this year. Known as segments 3A and 3B, it’s a 10-mile project to expand North Freeway from downtown to U.S. 287, almost doubling the traffic capacity. It will rebuild existing lanes and add toll lanes.
Segment 3A is a $1.4 billion project from Interstate 30 to just south of the I-35W/Loop 820 interchange. Completion is expected in mid-2018.
Segment 3B is a $244 million effort from north of the interchange to U.S. 287. It should be finished in 2017.
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price called the reconstruction of “the backbone of Fort Worth’s transportation system” a huge win for the city.
The $2.5 billion North Tarrant Express project to expand 13.5 miles of Loop 820 and Airport Freeway from I-35W to Industrial Boulevard is more than past the halfway mark to a mid-2015 completion.
