Project Details

The project was the single largest bridge job ever let by TxDOT with over three million square feet of bridge deck, including a Trinity River crossing and two creek crossings. This $238 million new location job involved construction of 4.2 miles of mainlanes, frontage roads, cross streets, and slip ramps north of IH 30 to SH 183, including 13 new bridges. NTTA purchased the route from TxDOT subsequent to bid letting. WB averaged $10 million per month in construction, making this assignment the fastest highway project ever constructed in Dallas.
