SH 360 Expansion- Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield
SH 360 is What’s Happening!
If you haven’t heard by now, State Highway 360 is undergoing construction. It appears NTTA and the Texas Transportation Commission have come to a groundbreaking agreement to expand SH 360!

Is That A Good Thing?
This is great, because it will make maneuvering through cities: Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield a summer’s breeze. In 2016 traffic is said to have increased significantly by “52,000 daily drivers in the 9.7-mile corridor”, and is predicted to increase even more by year 2030 to “174,000 daily drivers”. (Reginald Lewis- Office of Communications, http://www.arlington-tx.gov, 2016). Which means they are somewhat ahead of predictions as the original anticipation was complete by December 2017. However, the projected completion date is now Spring 2018. We learned the new information by contacting the Texas Department of Transportation. As a result, we were welcomed to contact Tony Payberah, P.E. Texas Department of Transportation by either e-mailing: Tony.Payberah@txdot.gov or calling Phone: (817) 225-4630, and he guaranteed that we could receive up-to-date information about the status of construction.
