North Tarrant Express Toll Road

One of America's most innovative and complex road building projects, the North Tarrant Express was built by Ferrovial Agroman and is managed by Cintra.

The NTE project is creating about 2,000 jobs in Texas, contributing to the job creation and economic development recovery in the United States. Additionally, a significant number of the region’s small businesses, contractors, suppliers and vendors will be involved in this critical project.

The NTE is a 13.5 mile highway located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in north Texas. It is dedicated to improving mobility along a series of highways vital to the region, including IH-820 and SH 121/183.

The North Tarrant Express corridor is one of the most congested in the United States. Vehicles will choose the new managed lanes when the facility opens in 2015 because it will offer faster, safer and more reliable travel.

Managed lanes: a new mobility concept

The NTE is unique in its category: a road with dynamic tolls built inside a congested urban highway that has been upgraded and will be operated and maintained at no charge to users throughout the concession period. The addition of the managed lanes (called “TEXpress lanes” in Texas) doubles the road’s carrying capacity. Drivers can choose between the free lanes and the new managed lanes, which carry a toll that fluctuates during the day depending on traffic conditions in the corridor.

The project has been honored with two national awards from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association for their efforts in caring for the environment and relations with the community during the project implementation highlighting the Comprehensive Environmental Protection Program. The prestigious Infrastructure Journal also recognized NTE as the “2009 Global Transport Deal of the Year”.
