Southeast Connector Project

About The Project

The Southeast Connector is a design-build Project in the Fort Worth District consisting of approximately 16.6 miles of non-tolled improvements to I-20 from Forest Hill Drive to Park Springs Boulevard, to I-820 from I-20 to Brentwood Stair Road, and to US 287 from Bishop Street to Sublett Road.

  • I-820 from  I-20  to  Brentwood  Stair  Road:  construction of two additional general-purpose lanes, plus one additional frontage road lane, in each direction; the reconstruction and realignment of existing GPLs, frontage roads, I-20/I-820 interchange, SP 303/I-820 interchange, US 180/I-820 interchange, and on- and off-ramps.
  • US 287 from Bishop Street to Sublett Road: construction of one additional general-purpose lane in each direction; the reconstruction and realignment of existing general-purpose lanes, frontage roads, US 287/I-820 interchange, and on- and off-ramps.

  • Minimize delays to the traveling public and inconvenience to the surrounding communities while maximizing safety in the corridor during construction.
  • Facilitate long-term congestion management and relief in the corridor by accommodating the movement of people and goods for multiple modes of travel.
