    • NEW SECTION OF PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE FOURTH LANE NOW OPEN
      7/9/2019 12:00 AM
      PLANO, Texas- July 9, 2019 - The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) has opened an additional traffic lane eastbound on President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) between Frankford Road and the Dallas North Tollway. 
      “Opening this fourth lane will help to decrease traffic congestion for our customers,” said Elizabeth Mow, NTTA Assistant Executive Director of Infrastructure. “We continue work to improve the remaining areas of the Bush Turnpike between Interstate 35E and the DNT and through additional planned widening projects.”
      Work to widen the PGBT between the DNT and I-35E began in July 2017 and is anticipated to be completed late this year, weather permitting. This eastbound fourth lane is the first piece of this section to open to traffic.
      With the opening of this section, drivers now have four travel lanes in the eastbound direction between Frankford Road in Carrollton and State Highway 78 in Garland. Widening between the DNT and SH 78 were previously completed and opened to traffic.
       
      Other sections of the PGBT Widening Project are under development:
      ·         DNT to I-35E (eastbound lanes from I-35E to Frankford Road and westbound lanes from the
      DNT to I-35E, anticipated completion late 2019)
      ·         I-35E to Belt Line Road (construction anticipated to begin later this summer)
      ·         SH 183 to I-20 (construction to begin in 2020)
       
      More information on the PGBT Widening Project and other NTTA improvement projects is available at ProgressNTTA.org.
