TxDOT in Tarrant County: Southeast Connector Project

TxDOT is working on a major roadway project in Tarrant County. The Southeast Connector project will reconstruct and widen I-20, I-820 and US 287, including the three major interchanges for each highway. The project will also include the creation of bicycle/pedestrian accommodations including shared-use paths and sidewalks along frontage roads and at cross-street intersections.  The total project length is 16 miles. The Southeast Connector project will require approximately 22 acres of right-of-way. TxDOT predicts that this could result in 23 residential displacements and 19 commercial displacements. The Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and the final environmental assessment were made available for public review in September 2020. The next steps for the project will be right-of-way acquisition.
