Southwest Parkway Work Crosses Tarrant County in Multiple Areas

Text size: A A

Fort Worth’s $22-million, 8.7-mi Southwest Parkway limited-access toll road will be under way through spring. It was combined with a 6-mi section of SWP being developed by TxDOT and the 13-mi Chisholm Trail (or CT), also developed by TxDOT. The combined project is 28-mi long and extends south from IH-30 in Fort Worth to U.S. 67 in Johnson County.

It will be funded through North Texas Tollway Authority’s Feasibility Study Fund, and reimbursed if NTTA is not the final developer.

Work also began in April for access improvements at IH-20/SH 183 in preparation for the future SH 121/Southwest Parkway. The project includes new bridges, access ramps and frontage roads and rebuilding SH 183 mainlanes.

Early construction includes building the SH 121 frontage roads, a turnaround bridge and auxiliary lanes. TxDOT awarded the project to W. W. Webber LLC of Houston for $117 million. It is funded through ARRA dollars that were allocated by the North Central Texas Council of Governments Regional Transportation Council.
