Access from westbound Interstate 30 to southbound Chisholm Trail Parkway got easier on Friday when the North Texas Tollway Authority opened a new direct-connector ramp near downtown Fort Worth.

 

As the project nears completion, crews working just west of downtown are continuing their efforts on:

 

·         A new westbound I-30 entrance ramp west of Summit Avenue

·         A new loop ramp from eastbound I-30 to northbound Forest Park Boulevard

·         A new westbound I-30 frontage road entrance ramp to southbound CTP

·         Reconstruction of a westbound I-30 entrance ramp from Forest Park Boulevard and along Parkview Drive

·         Final paving and street improvements along University Drive

 

The project, undertaken by the city in cooperation with the city of Fort Worth, the Texas Department of Transportation and other partners, will continue into 2015.

 

All main lanes of the 27.6-mile parkway opened to traffic May 11. The roadway provides a continuous route for motorists traveling from the downtown Fort Worth business district west and south to Cleburne in Johnson County. In coming weeks, motorists can expect finishing touches to be added to the roadway, according to the tollway authority.

 

Chisholm Trail Parkway is expected to continue alleviating congestion on Interstate 35W, Texas 174, FM 1187, Bryant Irvin Road, Hulen Street and other roadways. The roadway marks NTTA’s first venture in Tarrant and Johnson counties.
