North Tarrant Express Segment 3A

The $990 M NTE 3A is being constructed in an urban area using an existing corridor while maintaining traffic. Current traffic is over AADT 145,000; the redevelopment will nearly double the capacity of the corridor. Ferrovial Agroman leads the design-build joint venture under a fixed-price, fixed-schedule contract. New construction of 6.5 miles of two express lanes in each direction along the IH 35W including the IH 35 W/IH 820 Interchange and reconstruction of existing lanes and new construction of frontage roads. 25 bridges (17 highway overpass structures, three highway underpass structures, two braided ramp structures and three direct connectors) and two major stream crossings. A 1,900-foot-long multi-span bridge over the Union Pacific and Texas and Pacific Railways. Right of way acquisition of 100 parcels, valued at $40 million, in 22 months. The project is on schedule for completion in September 2018.
