DNT Bridge Over US 380 Image


PLANO, Texas - March 13, 2023 – The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) has opened an extension of the Dallas North Tollway (DNT) over US 380 to help meet future traffic demands due to explosive growth and economic development in Collin and Denton counties.

The bridge extends the DNT into the Town of Prosper. This project is the first part of the DNT Phase 4 project, which will ultimately extend the DNT main lanes to the Grayson County line. This bridge will help ease congestion in Frisco, Prosper and Celina while also spurring development.

“This is an important milestone in the northern expansion of the Dallas North Tollway,” said Elizabeth Mow, NTTA Assistant Executive Director of Infrastructure. “The DNT is a critical route, creating economic development opportunities for Frisco, Prosper and Celina and will stimulate growth for decades to come.”

This project is part of NTTA’s capital plan that has reinvested in improvement and expansion projects on the President George Bush Turnpike, Sam Rayburn Tollway and Dallas North Tollway to help reduce traffic congestion and support the growing population.
