Project Information

First Section from I-35E to I-45 (Corridor B) 
This section began development following approval of the Corridor/Feasibility Study in 2014.  TxDOT proposes the construction of a six-lane new location frontage road system between I-35E and I-45 through Dallas and Ellis counties, Texas. The proposed right-of-way (ROW) would include a median that would accomodate the future construction of an ultimate access-controlled mainline facility. Construction of the ultimate access-controlled mainline facility would be based on the projected traffic and funding would require additional environmental analysis prior to construction. Once approved, the frontage road system would be constructed in three phases as funding becomes available. Phase 1 (one side of the frontage road system) would be constructed first.

Following the Public Meeting, the project team has continued to refine the project schematics to address concerns presented by the public and local officials. The final schematic is available for download here.       

The Environmental Assessment (EA) for the first section of Loop 9 from I-35E to I-45 is available for download here. A Public Hearing was held on June 20, 2017. Information from the hearing is available here. A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is anticipated in the Fall of 2017.
