TxDOT breaks ground on I-20 project as I-35 construction finally ends

The I-35 project took five years to complete

Here in DFW, it seems dealing with construction has become a part of just about everybody’s daily commute. With the metroplex continuing to grow, more and more funds have been put into improving roadways. Now, just as one of these major projects comes to an end, TxDOT has broken ground on yet another highway construction project.

On Wednesday, representatives from Dallas and the state of Texas took part in a ribbon cutting ceremony, as the Southern Gateway Project on I-35 was finally completed. The project took five years and nearly $700 million to finish. Just as officials were celebrating the completion of one project, another project on the other side of town was just beginning.

According to Fox 4 News, TxDOT broke ground on their next major project, an 11-mile plan to widen Interstate 20 to 10 lanes and spread Loop 820 to eight lanes. That project will cost $1.6 billion and is expected to be complete by 2027. Sadly, it seems construction will never end in DFW.
