President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT)
The President George Bush Turnpike forms a sweeping arch across the eastern half of the Metroplex, connecting drivers with communities in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties. The 52-mile toll road has expanded significantly since the first section opened in 1998 between Midway Road and Preston Road. By 2005, the PGBT ran between Beltline Road in Irving and SH 78 in Garland.
The mainlanes of the PGBT between SH 183 and I-30 opened to traffic in 2009. SH 78 to I-30 opened in 2011. The section between I-30 and I-20 in Grand Prairie opened in 2012. The road was expanded during projects from 2016-2022.
