Town Hall to Discuss SH 360 South Project: Nov. 10, 2015

Articles Road Construction Projects 3-2-15

Residents and business owners in Arlington, Grand Prairie and Mansfield have a chance to learn more about the $330 million SH 360 South Project during an open house scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 at the Mansfield Timberview High School cafeteria.

More than 100 people attended the Oct. 21 groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of this 9.7 mile project, which stretches from Green Oaks Boulevard to U.S. 287. It will help ease congestion in and around Arlington, Grand Prairie and Mansfield. The project should also enhance safety and generate economic development in the area.

The new four-lane toll road will provide drivers with an alternate way to travel this rapidly-developing corridor in southern Tarrant County. By 2030, an estimated 174,000 drivers a day will drive the 9.7 mile corridor.

TxDOT will build and finance the first phase of the project, which is projected to be substantially completed in late 2017.

In addition to the $330 million being paid by TxDOT, the City of Arlington will provide $1.1 million for intersection improvements on Webb Lynn Road, Sublett Road, Debbie Lane and New York Avenue. An additional $3.2 in funding from the 2014 Bond Election will help realign the New York Avenue/ Eden Road intersection.

We appreciate everyone’s feedback. The frontage roads on 360 South will remain open even after the project is complete, so if you do not want to pay the toll, you can continue to use the un-tolled frontage roads on 360 South.

I live one block off 360 and NY. Now I have to pay for coming and going from my home.
How sad is that. I think if you live within a mile from the toll road it should be free.

Please use the funds from the stupid bike trail, plus Jerry Jones funds and pay to finish the rest of 360. Do what’s right and listen to those whom elected you in to office.

why you need to charge a toll for new hiway what has been on the drawing board for over 20 years… why should WE who live here have to pay another toll road to have a hiway that each city should already have monies set aside for this !

Because Government must always be perpetuated, its costs a lot of money for them to know what is best for us. We need to fund their pension etc. So what if the bond money was frittered away for things like paying salaries by our local government to study and then shove down our throats new bike trails for the bicycle Nazis. BTW I don’t use toll roads. It is another money grab to keep government in business.
