New laws allow Texas 183 expansion from Fort Worth to Dallas
IRVING — Help is on the way for white-knuckle drivers who are tired of the congestion on Texas 183 between Euless and Dallas, near the south entrance to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
State and local officials announced Friday that they will move forward with plans to hire a private developer and rebuild Texas 183 from near Industrial Boulevard in Euless to Interstate 35E in Dallas, including the roads surrounding the former Texas Stadium site in Irving.
The project, which could total $3.8 billion over the next several decades, might also include a makeover of Loop 12 near the stadium site, as well as Texas 114 from the stadium area to the north airport entrance in Grapevine.
“When it’s over, the region will have gained a state-of-the-art facility and one of the safest facilities in the state,” Rep. Linda Harper-Brown, R-Irving, said Friday during a ceremony at the University of Dallas in Irving.
