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.

President George Bush Turnpike East Branch

The President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) East Branch project will extend the PGBT south from I-30 to I-20, approximately 11 miles. 

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) began to study this area in 1969 as part of the Dallas County Outer Loop Project. 

In 2021, TxDOT transferred this project to NTTA to complete the environmental study and select a route alignment for the future extension. 

Opening date: To be determined.

Public Meetings like the above will be held to receive stakeholder input.
