Driver's View of the 190 President George Bush Turnpike
West to East, August 19, 2001

Last updated August 22, 2001

On July 31, 2001, the section of the 190/Bush Turnpike (190/GBT) from IH-35E to Midway Road was opened, providing a continuous facility from IH-35E in the west to US 78 in the east. This is the first new continuous east-west freeway crossing of north Dallas since the opening of IH-635 in 1968.

So, enjoy the cruise on this impressive new facility. If you have a tolltag, you won't have to stop.

(high resolution 150k) View along the southbound lanes of Interstate 35E. The ramp to 190/GBT is on the left. At the time of the photo, the IH-35E traffic was diverted to the future feeder road, which is why the ramp is on the left.

The exit to US 75. 190/GBT is the top level of the 4-level stack at US 75, so no ramps are visible.

Just east of US 75. Notice the extra pavement available on the left for future widening.

After going under 78, 190/GBT turns into the Northeast Parkway. This is only temporary, because the east 190/GBT should start construction around 2004.
