For oh about three years now, the best advice has been to just stay off Northeast Loop 820 and Texas 121/183 in Tarrant County if you can. But that long, orange-cone-laden ordeal is almost over!
The $2.5 billion project is officially on schedule to be completed by the end of the year, and we're hearing whispers that it could be done MUCH sooner, like, possibly October-ish. In any case, pretty soon the north end of greater Fort Worth is going to be home to some much-improved freeway (and toll) lanes.
But a few weeks of mesmerizingly confusing lane changes remain. My colleague, Terry Evans, wrote a story last week that gave motorists the skinny on what to expect for the next month or so on the North Tarrant Express.
