Improvements to Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT) began in early January 2019. This work includes constructing an additional lane in each direction, in the center median, along the entire 26-miles of the SRT, from west of Denton Tap Road to U.S. 75. A new ramp will be built to replace the existing eastbound Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road exit ramps and separate exiting and incoming traffic merging onto SRT from the DNT direct-connectors. Drivers coming from the DNT will continue to have access to enter the new eastbound Preston Road exit ramp or enter eastbound SRT. Auxiliary lanes will also be added in various locations along the corridor to improve ramp merging areas.
As part of the North Texas Tollway Authority’s (NTTA) public involvement and environmental analysis processes, two community meetings were held in February 2017. In July 2017, a Public Hearing was held to present the project and results of the environmental analysis, and to receive formal comments from those in attendance. Comments were accepted until Aug. 9, 2017.
All comments were reviewed and responded to by NTTA. That information, a Public Hearing Summary and other project details are included in the Sam Rayburn Tollway Fourth Lane Widening Categorical Exclusion Documentation.
The fourth lane is expected to open to traffic in late 2021.
