Chisholm Trail Parkway is a 27.6-mile toll road extends 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. Initial construction on the CTP began in April 2010, and the road opened to traffic on May 11, 2014.


Adjacent to the CTP, the Texas Department of Transportation has constructed local access improvements to Interstate 20/State Highway 183 (Southwest Boulevard). $117 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds were used to pay for what is referred to as Section 3A.


Some construction continues on CTP and TxDOT's Section 3A. Project updates will continue to be provided in this newsletter.


Second ramp from Chisholm Trail Parkway to I-20 opens to traffic  



The second of four direct-connector ramps between CTP and Interstate 20 in south Fort Worth opened July 26 as the North Texas Tollway Authority opened the ramp from northbound CTP to eastbound I-20.


A week earlier, the westbound I-20 to southbound CTP ramp opened to traffic.


Additional ramps at the I-20/State Highway 183 interchange and at I-30 will open as they are completed by the end of the summer, weather permitting.



Stay safe in construction zones

Although CTP opened in May, construction still continues on the roadway. Because of this work, drivers will encounter a number of work zones.


Work zones, whether for construction or roadway maintenance, require extra attention and extreme caution. Drivers should pay special attention to workers, equipment, and traffic control devices such as signs and flaggers, as well as other motorists who may be confused by the construction zone.


Roadway work can be dangerous, and drivers going through work zones also face increased risk. According to the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse, more than 600 people were killed in work zone crashes across the United States in 2012 (the most recent year for which data is available), and Texas had more work zone fatalities than any other state.


When traveling through work zones, follow these tips provided by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation:

Eliminate distractions: Drinking, eating, using a cell phone or adjusting radio settings all take attention away from the road long enough for serious mistakes to occur.

Expect the unexpected: Speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and people may be working on or near the road.

Slow down: A car traveling at 60 mph travels 88 feet per second. The faster you are driving, the longer it takes to stop.

Read caution signs: Don't assume that the same traffic switches or road conditions are in effect as the last time you traveled through that work zone. Construction schedules call for frequent changes.

Give yourself room: Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident in work zones.

Plan ahead: Leave early or map out an alternate route so you don't feel pressured to speed.

Be patient: If you don't see workers, that doesn't mean they aren't there.


And remember, Texas enforces increased penalties for drivers who ignore posted speed limits in work zones where workers are present. A traffic ticket will cost more in posted work zones when workers are in the area.


Safety is no accident. Follow these safety tips and dial 9-1-1 to report unsafe drivers or conditions.
