Current and Future State Highway Projects in Tarrant County

 

Loyl Busssell, P.E.
Deputy Director
Fort Worth District
Texas Department of Transportation


Engineers in TXDOT's Fort Worth District are currently overseeing $3.6 billion in construction contracts, including the North Freeway (I-35W from downtown Fort Worth north to the US287 split; approximately 10 miles), the DFW Connector (TX121/TX360 interchange west of DFW Airport; approximately 4.5 miles), the Midtown Express (TX183 from TX121 to I-35E: 21.5 miles total, approximately 10 miles in Tarrant County) and TX360 South (E. Sublett Road to US287, approximately 10 miles). The Fort Worth District encompasses the state's third highest population and number of registered vehicles.


In this presentation, Mr. Bussell provides an overview of these projects and others and an estimation of future highway needs, which are formidable: The nine-county Fort Worth District currently has approximately 2 million people driving 2.2 million registered vehicles.


Loyl Bussell began his career with TxDOT in 1984 as a summer employee. He earned a BS from Texas A&M and an MS from UT Austin, both degrees in civil engineering. Bussell held a variety of leadership positions with TXDOT, including assistant bridge design engineer, deputy design project manager, and director of transportation planning and development before becoming deputy director in 2014.
