Chisholm Trail Parkway is a 27.6-mile toll road that will extend from Tarrant County to Johnson County, starting from Fort Worth's central business district at Interstate 30 and continuing to U.S. 67 in Cleburne. The NTTA began initial construction in April 2010 on Section 2C, one of the northernmost sections of the project, located in Fort Worth near Union Pacific Railroad's Davidson Yard. In March 2010, the Texas Department of Transportation began construction of Section 3A, a $117 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project. Section 3A consists of local access improvements to Interstate 20/State Highway 183 (Southwest Boulevard) at CTP. Construction of the remaining project sections is underway. The CTP is anticipated to open to traffic on May 11, 2014, weather permitting.
_________________________________________________________

Preparations continue for Chisholm Trail Parkway to open this Sunday
 

Traffic AlertThe Chisholm Trail Parkway main lanes will open to the public Sunday, May 11, weather permitting, allowing drivers convenient access between Fort Worth and Cleburne and the many communities in between. Like many NTTA projects, this will be a phased opening. Drivers will have a safe roadway and increased mobility while crews continue work to complete select bridges, direct connectors and ramps along the corridor.

 

Following the CTP Run and Ride event scheduled for Saturday, May 10, crews will begin preparing the road for traffic. By Sunday morning, final checklists will be complete, and crews will begin opening the road. It will take several hours for the entire roadway to open to traffic.

B.I.G. meetings inform about CTP progress  

  

 

The NTTA hosted two Business Information Group, or B.I.G., meetings last week informing attendees about project progress and the upcoming opening of the 28-mile toll road. Fifteen members of the south Fort Worth B.I.G. met for the last time on April 28.

 

The downtown Fort Worth/Interstate 30 B.I.G. meeting was held the following day. A dozen attendees heard about the most recent CTP updates and the continuing work west of downtown Fort Worth. This group agreed to meet with the project team again in September.

 

Representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation and City of Fort Worth also were on hand at both meetings to present information or to answer questions.

TollTags are the best way to drive on toll roads in Texas. TollTag customers pay the lowest rates - ZipCash customers pay 50 percent more, reflecting the higher cost of collection.

TollTags also can be used on any toll road in Texas, including the new TEXpress Lanes, without the hassle of receiving and paying bills through the mail.
