SH 161, President George Bush Turnpike — Western Extension, NTTA
NLA served on the team providing administrative support. The project included an 11.5 mile link in the ever-expanding loop around Dallas. The Bush Turnpike Western Extension consists of tolled main lanes, and also the frontage roads, referenced as State Highway 161. The corridor offers cashless tolling on the main lanes in each direction from north of I-30 south to I-20. Phases 1-3 were opened to commuters in 2009-2010 under the direction of TxDOT. Phase 4 was approved by NTTA in 2010 authorizing a toll equity loan agreement with TxDOT. Phase 4 opened in 2012.
