US 81/US 287 - Avondale-Haslet Road to I-35W
TxD0T is proposing improvements to US 81/ US 287 from south of Avondale-Haslet Road to l-35W in Tarrant County, Texas.
Proposed project improvements
The proposed project would:
- Add one inside mainlane in each direction
- Construct new continuous one-way frontage roads
- 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.
The first project at Harmon Road and North Tarrant Parkway would construct frontage roads 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.
TxDOT held a public meeting Nov. 14, 2019 and plan to hold a virtual public hearing with in-person option on June 2, 2022.
