Dallas North Tollway
Interim Coverage

Last updated 10-December-2001

The Dallas North tollway is unique in the DFW Metroplex because it is built on an extremely narrow right-of-way. Between downtown and IH-635 LBJ Freeway, the corridor is about 100 feet wide. From IH-635 to 190/Bush Turnpike, the corridor is about 200 feet wide, but this section also includes feeder roads so the corridor is fully maxed out. The newer section north of 190/Bush Turnpike has a more reasonable corridor width of about 300 feet. However, this is still substantially more narrow that the 400-foot-wide corridor that is standard for new freeways in Dallas-Fort Worth.

The Dallas North Tollway has six main lanes for its entire length. The facility has feeder roads north of IH-635. There are plans to extend the tollway northward from its current terminus at 121. Eventually, the tollway will reach all the way to 380.

Eventually I will get a more comprehensive set of photos of the North Dallas Tollway. I decided to put these interim photos online until I can provide full coverage.

DNT near Forest Lane
Driver's view going north, south of Forest Lane. Between downtown and IH-635, the Dallas North Tollway goes underneath most intersecting roads. Photo taken 19-August-2001.

DNT near Spring Valley
Driver's view going north near Spring Valley. Between IH-635 and 190/GBT, the Dallas North Tollway is built on the alignment of what was previous the Dallas North Parkway. The corridor width is about 180-200, just barely wide enough to hold the 6-lane tollway and feeder roads. There is a tremendous amount of commercial development along this section of the tollway. Photo taken 19-August-2001.
