    • ADDITIONAL LANES OPEN ON THE PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE
      1/23/2020 10:00 AM

      PLANO, TEXAS – Jan. 6, 2020 – Drivers who travel the President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) now have more room to roam.

      The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) has opened an additional fourth lane in each direction of the PGBT between the Dallas North Tollway (DNT) and Interstate 35E.   

      "Opening these lanes will help to decrease traffic congestion for our customers traveling on the PGBT," said Elizabeth Mow, NTTA Assistant Executive Director of Infrastructure. "Other work is underway to widen the PGBT between I-35E and Belt Line Road in Irving and between State Highway 183 and Interstate 20."  
       

      With the opening of this section, drivers now have four continuous lanes between State Highway 78 in Garland and I-35E in Carrollton. Widenings between SH 78 and the DNT were previously completed and opened to traffic in phases.  
       

      There are two additional sections of the PGBT Widening Project currently under construction. Below is information on each and their current status:I-35E to Belt Line Road (in progress, anticipated completion in late 2021)  
       

      SH 183 to I-20 (in progress, anticipated completion in 2022)

      This project is part of NTTA’s five-year capital plan that will invest nearly $2 billion in several improvements and expansion projects across North Texas to reduce traffic congestion and support the growing population.
