The project formerly known as State Highway 183 Managed Lanes Project and now called Midtown Express — a design-build, finance, operate and maintain project that spans 28 miles, five cities and two counties — is due to begin construction this month. The interim project cost (design and construction) is estimated to be $847.6 million with the ultimate project cost at $3.8 billion.

The project has been renamed since the scope includes more than just the reconstruction of SH 183. It now includes work on SH 114 and Loop 12. For that reason, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and SouthGate decided that a new name was needed.

Midtown refers to the project’s location and the fact that these roadways connect Fort Worth and Dallas, in addition to many cities in between. Express signifies that, after completion, drivers will have the choice to travel on the new TEXpress lanes.

SouthGate is committed to keeping the public informed of the project’s status throughout the life of the project.
