Looking for a way around construction congestion? The President George Bush Turnpike offers a great choice for drivers who are searching for a good alternate route to other roadways undergoing major disruption due to construction.
The Bush Turnpike provides a great east-west route that can help motorists avoid lane closures on LBJ Freeway. The LBJ Express reconstruction project is scheduled to last for the next five years.
Much like LBJ, the Bush Turnpike stretches from near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to eastern suburban Dallas-area cities and provides direct connections to Interstate 35E, the Dallas North Tollway and U.S. 75. By the end of this year, the Bush Turnpike will extend to I-30 in Garland and Rowlett.
Meanwhile, the Bush Turnpike allows drivers to bypass construction associated with the DFW Connector project at the north end of DFW Airport. Instead, motorists can travel southbound Bush Turnpike/SH 161 to SH 183 west and look for the signs to the airport’s south entrance to avoid backups and lane closures.
