Tollway project to improve traffic for North Texas cities

To keep up with the demand of increased traffic, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) will make improvements to the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT) that will begin in Coppell and end in McKinney, beginning next year.

According to NTTA officials, The SRT Fourth Lane Project will consist of constructing an additional lane in each direction along the entire 26-mile toll road, from west of Denton Tap Road to U.S. 75.

In addition, ramp improvements will be made between the Dallas North Tollway and Preston Road to separate traffic for motorists exiting northbound from the SRT to Preston Road and for motorists entering SRT from the Dallas North Tollway. Auxiliary lanes will also be added in various locations along the corridor to improve ramp merging areas.
