State Highway 183 Update

Presented by City of Irving

The project formerly known as State Highway 183 Managed Lanes Project — an $850 million design-build, finance, operate and maintain project that spans 28 miles, five cities and two counties — is due to begin construction in March of this year.

The project has been renamed Midtown Express as the scope includes more than just the reconstruction of SH 183. Now, the project 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 to encompass the full project scope and enhancements the community can expect to receive.

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. The public information team has implemented many tools in an effort to help the public stay informed.
