Strategic, Coordinated Infrastructure Investments

Transportation projects are moving forward with a strategic and coordinated approach, despite inadequate funding. Many improvements designed to enhance mobility have opened, while others are nearing completion or have recently secured funding. 

Over the last year, approximately $1.5 billion (construction costs) in major roadway and transit projects were completed and opened to traffic, including construction of the first phase of the Loop 12/State Highway 114 interchange in Irving, as well as the completion of the DFW Connector.

The Regional Transportation Council also continued to successfully build partnerships resulting in the funding of several major roadway projects. Over $1.8 billion in transportation improvements have been approved for funding in the 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program, a staged, multi-year program of projects approved for funding by federal, state and local sources within the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

One such project is the southern portion of SH 360 from just south of Interstate Highway 20 to US Highway 287. This project, which was listed in NCTCOG’s first long-range transportation plan in 1974, is being made possible by a partnership that includes TxDOT, NTTA and the RTC. It will be built by TxDOT and operated by NTTA. The RTC has agreed to backstop the loan. 

Several major transportation improvement projects began construction over the last year, including the IH 35E project that stretches from Denton County southeast into northern Dallas County. Construction of the first phase of this multi-staged project will cost an estimated $700 million. The total cost of the phase is $1.4 billion. 

Construction on the $800 million Horseshoe project, which includes new bridges along IH 30 and IH 35E in and near the Dallas central business district also began last year. NCTCOG maintains annual project listings dating to 2008 at NCTCOG.org/trans/tip/apls.asp.

This map shows Dallas-Fort Worth area projects worth at least $50 million that were begun, completed or funded in 2013. Combined, the projects are projected to cost $5 billion and represent a continuation of the region’s commitment to improve mobility.
