ABSTRACT

The North Tarrant Express (NTE) is a US$2.1 Billion, that includes the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of 13.5-mile highway reconstruction project that was built to double the capacity of IH 820 and SH 121/183, a major east-west corridor in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area (Texas- USA). All of the general-purpose and frontage/service roads were reconstructed and, in addition, two new lanes with dynamic tolling (known as TEXpress lanes) were added in each direction. Motorists using the TEXpress do not to stop to pay the tolls, which change based on traffic congestion. The project design started at the end of 2009 and one year later began construction that was completed in October 2014, nine months ahead of schedule.
