More ramps have opened from northbound Chisholm Trail Parkway to eastbound Interstate 30, Cherry Street and Summit and Lancaster avenues in Fort Worth.
The ramps are part of the North Texas Tollway Authority’s ongoing development of Chisholm Trail Parkway, the 27.6-mile roadway connecting the downtown business district south to Cleburne.
Also opened to traffic as of late Sunday Aug. 3 is a new ramp to access eastbound I-30 from University Drive. Motorists traveling along University Drive can now access I-30, as well as Summit Avenue, Cherry Street and Lancaster Avenue, on the new ramp located just south of the Vickery Boulevard intersection and just north of the Union Pacific Railroad.
The newly opened University Drive access ramp to eastbound I-30 shutters the former University Drive ramp, part of the latest phase in Chisholm Trail Parkway construction.
In the weeks and months ahead, motorists can expect finishing touches to be added to the roadway.
