TxDOT is proposing improvements to US 81/ US  287 from south of Avondale-Haslet Road to I-35W in Tarrant County, Texas. 


The proposed project would reconstruct the mainlanes and add one inside mainlane in each  direction, construct new continuous one-way frontage roads, and convert existing two-way frontage roads to one-way frontage roads. The existing interchanges would be reconstructed. Willow Springs Road would be reconstructed to cross under the US 81/  US 287 mainlanes, an interchange is proposed at Heritage Trace Parkway, and Wagley Robertson Road would be connected to the proposed frontage roads. Entrance and exit ramp locations would be adjusted to provide more efficient access to adjacent land uses. Additional right-of-way and denial of access at ramp locations would be necessary to accommodate the proposed improvements.  

Phase 1 of the project at Harmon Road and North Tarrant Parkway would construct frontage roads from north of Harmon Road to west of IH 35W. The project would consist of one northbound exit ramp to North Tarrant Parkway, two southbound ramps to and from North Tarrant Parkway/Harmon Road.  Bridges would be constructed at Harmon Road and North Tarrant Parkway, along with intersection signals.

Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.

Any environmental documentation or studies, any maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Fort Worth District Office at 2501 S.W. Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76133 or by phone at (817) 370-6500.
