Dallas North Tollway Extension to Roll Through Prosper and Celina Approved for 2027
The North Texas Tollway Authority greenlights a six-mile extension of the Dallas North Tollway, expanding its reach through Prosper and Celina.
The North Texas Tollway Authority has given the green light for a significant expansion of the Dallas North Tollway, paving the way for a six-mile extension that will traverse through Prosper and Celina. The approval of Phase 4A by the NTTA means construction, set to begin in the spring, will extend the highway from U.S. 380 to Farm-to-Market Road 428.
Elizabeth Mow, NTTA Assistant Executive Director of Infrastructure, expressed enthusiasm for the expansion, highlighting the tollway’s potential to connect new communities and foster economic growth in the region.
This extension project, projected to cost $460 million, will feature three main lanes in each direction and is anticipated to open to traffic by the end of 2027, weather permitting, as stated by Michael Rey, NTTA’s media relations manager.
Moreover, discussions regarding diversity in construction services were raised during the approval process, emphasizing a focus on engaging disadvantaged, minority- and woman-owned businesses to foster competition and participation in the project.
While Phase 4B, a future extension spanning 7.7 miles from FM 428 to the Grayson County line, remains on planning maps, it is slated for a more distant timeframe. The ongoing tollway work in Frisco between the Sam Rayburn Tollway and U.S. 380 is a part of the broader project, which began its initial construction phase in February 2020.
