Pavement Repairs to Occur on the Western Portion of the Sam Rayburn Tollway in May
Starting in early May, NTTA maintenance staff will begin pavement repairs on sections of the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Denton County. Throughout the project, crews will remove and replace cracked or worn out pavement on the toll road’s main lanes and frontage roads.
“The main purpose of this project is to provide motorists a safe and smooth driving surface,” said Eric Hemphill, interim director of maintenance for the NTTA.
Tentatively scheduled to begin May 7, pavement repairs will be performed on several areas of the Sam Rayburn Tollway frontage roads (State Highway 121) and the main-lane area of the roadway. These four areas include:
- Northbound frontage roads east of MacArthur Boulevard
- Southwest-bound frontage roads west of Lake Vista Drive
- Three corners of the frontage roads and Interstate 35E frontage road interchange
- North- and southbound SRT main lanes between the I-35E interchange and Hebron Parkway
The pavement repairs will impact drivers traveling in Lewisville and Coppell and will take four months to complete, weather permitting. Crews will work on the pavement repairs during various hours of the daytime and evening and will make every effort to avoid disrupting traffic during peak hours.
The NTTA appreciate the public’s patience during this maintenance project.
Temporary lane and ramp closures will be required for this maintenance project and will be continuous at various times while work takes place. Message boards will be placed along the roadway to alert motorists to the closures in advance.
