The city of Fort Worth announced that the on-ramp to northbound I-35W at Westport Parkway will be closed beginning June 30 through October. All traffic will be redirected to the next available entrance at Alliance Boulevard, according to a city news release.
Part of the 3C phase of the ongoing North Tarrant Express project, once complete drivers will have access to continuous frontage roads along a 7.1-mile stretch of I-35W between North Tarrant Parkway and Eagle Parkway.
The 3C phase will cost upward of $662 million and aims to bring two northbound and two southbound toll lanes to the same section of roadway. The new addition will supplement previously completed toll lanes along I-35W between North Tarrant Parkway and downtown Fort Worth.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, more than 156,000 drivers use I-35W north of I-30 on a daily basis. TxDOT figures indicate that that number will rise to 315,000 vehicles per day by 2045.
