Chisholm Trail Parkway due to open in May
Posted Feb. 5, 2014
The Chisholm Trail Parkway is expected to open to traffic in May. The toll road extends 27.6 miles from west of Fort Worth’s business district south to U.S. 67 in Cleburne. The north-south toll road provides motorists with an alternative to I-35W.
The North Texas Tollway Authority will announce an exact date for the opening in the coming weeks.
The project is a collaboration between the City of Fort Worth, NTTA, Texas Department of Transportation and the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Tarrant and Johnson counties, the cities of Burleson and Cleburne, and the Union Pacific Railroad and the Fort Worth and Western Railroad.
Chisholm Trail Parkway is an all-electronic, or cashless, tolling road, meaning there will be no tollbooths. Electronic tolling systems assess tolls for motorists as they travel. TollTag customers have the lowest rates; ZipCash, the pay-by-mail system, are assessed at a higher rate.
These speed limits will be posted on the Chisholm Trail Parkway at its opening:
- From downtown Fort Worth to north of State Highway 183: 50 mph.
- From SH 183 to Altamesa Boulevard: 60 mph.
- From Altamesa Boulevard to U.S. 67: 70 mph.
