NEW DALLAS HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

Four-lane, 1.7-mile toll bridge across Lewisville Lake
Connecting Swisher Road in Lake Dallas and Eldorado Parkway in Little Elm



  Project Overview
The NTTA is working cooperatively with Denton County to plan and design a toll bridge across the northwestern arm of Lewisville Lake. The new toll bridge will be a part of the Lewisville Lake Corridor connecting Swisher Road in Lake Dallas to Eldorado Parkway in Little Elm. When complete, motorists will be able to travel on a new connection between IH 35E and the Dallas North Tollway. The conceptual design of the Corridor entails eight sections that, together, total 13 miles. Only the 1.7-mile bridge over the lake will be tolled.

The project is expected to be completed in 2008. The NTTA will fund and construct the toll bridge. The cities along the Corridor, Denton County and Texas Department of Transportation will fund improvements to the roadways approaching the bridge.

 
 Description:   Four-lane, 1.7-mile toll bridge across Lewisville Lake connecting Swisher Road in Lake Dallas and Eldorado Parkway in Little Elm. The entire corridor is 13.8 miles in length.
Status:   In May 2005, the NTTA Board of Directors selected a preliminary design of the bridge, which features a distinctive tied arch spanning 360 feet at the center with approaches and thresholds flanked by pairs of lighted columns. Completion of plans, specifications and estimates on the toll bridge and public hearings for sections 4-6 and 8 anticipated in early 2006. Design for sections 4-6 is under way. Denton County broke ground on Section 1, the bridge, on April 20 and construction is underway. Construction on Section 3, the eastern approach to the bridge, is planned to begin in June.

 
Project Cost Estimate: $169.2 million (entire corridor)
Estimated NTTA Cost: $82 million (toll bridge only)
Opening Date: Estimated completion in 2008
 

Lake Lewisville Toll Bridge Construction Contract Awarded

 

 The North Texas Tollway Authority Board of Directors awarded a $93 million contract last month for construction of the Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge, which will connect the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco at Eldorado Parkway to IH-35E at Swisher Road in Lake Dallas providing commuters a new east-west corridor through Denton County.

The 1.7-mile bridge, scheduled to open to traffic in 2009, will provide a vital link for the 13.8-mile corridor, which is a joint project with Denton County, the NTTA, TxDOT and local municipalities. The four-lane bridge will be the only tolled portion in the corridor. It was designed by Turner Collie & Braden, Inc. and will span the northern arm of the lake. Read more

Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge (LLTB)


The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) is working cooperatively with Denton County, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the US Army Corps of Engineers, and the cities of Little Elm, Frisco and Lake Dallas to develop a transportation corridor that includes a new east-west toll bridge across Lewisville Lake. The Lewisville Lake Corridor, which will connect IH-35E to the Dallas North Tollway at Eldorado in Little Elm, is approximately 13.8 miles long and divided into eight sections. The NTTA is constructing the 1.7-mile bridge and the communities along the corridor, Denton County and TxDOT will construct and fund improvements to the existing sections of the roadway approaching the bridge.  The Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge will feature a lighted, tied arch spanning 360 feet at the center of the 1.7-mile bridge. Approaches and thresholds of the bridge will be flanked by pairs of lighted columns. Construction of the bridge is expected to begin in late January or early February 2009. It is anticipated to open to traffic in spring 2009.
