In late Aug. 2016, NorthGate Constructors began work on improvements to the SH 121/360 interchange in Tarrant County. The SH 121/360 Interchange improvements were included in the original $1.6 billion DFW Connector project, but funds were not available at that time to deliver the entire scope. When congestion funding became available for these improvements in Feb. 2016, TxDOT and NorthGate Constructors negotiated a plan to rebuild this portion of the original project.
The new SH 121/360 Interchange will minimize weaving and reduce congestion on both SH 121 and SH 360 when complete. From northbound SH 360, there will be two new ramps: one to SH 121 and one to SH 114. From northbound SH 121, there will be a new ramp to westbound SH 114 and a reconfigured exit to William D. Tate Avenue.
From the existing eastbound SH 114 to southbound SH 121/360 bridge, NorthGate Constructors will add a new ramp to southbound SH 121 and reconfigure the ramp to southbound SH 360. From southbound SH 121, there will be a new ramp to SH 360. Click here for our fact sheet.
Below is a summary of work that will take place in spring 2017:
- Crews continue to perform dirt work along northbound SH 360 and SH 121.
- Drainage and walls crews are continuing to work in the SH 121 median.
- Paving crews are working on the new northbound SH 360 mainlanes to northbound SH 121 in preparation for traffic to move onto the new pavement in late spring/ early summer.
- Construction has started on all four new bridges in the area:
- Traffic is expected to switch onto the new northbound SH 360 bridge to northbound SH 121 by late spring/ early summer.
- Crews are finishing the final column and cap work on the new eastbound SH 114 bridge to southbound SH 121. Bridge beams, or girders, will be set on top of the columns following this work.
