The North Texas Tollway Authority opened a direct-connector ramp from westbound Interstate 20 to southbound Chisholm Trail Parkway, the latest phase of the project.
The work is part of the $2.5 billion North Tarrant Express project, which is 94 percent complete. The project, which began in late 2010, includes reconstructing and expanding frontage lanes and main lanes and adding TEXpress managed lanes along I-820 and Highway 121/183 between I-35W in Fort Worth and Industrial Boulevard in Euless.
The new, streamlined Fort Worth Citizens on Patrol training is scheduled for Aug. 16 at the Police and Fire Academy, 1000 Calvert St. The free class will be held 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
