The Northeast Gateway Turnpike

Residents in the Blacklands Tollway Corridor of eastern Collin and Hunt counties will have their chance to speak this week on the proposal of the new tollway, and its linking, Wylie, Lavon, Garland, Rockwall and Greenville. It would begin at the Bush Turnpike at Rowlett/Garland and travel northeast to Greenville. The North Central Texas Council of Governments will present its recommendations at a public meeting Thursday in Lavon. The most immediate project is the toll road, now called the Northeast Gateway project. It’s designed to take some of the traffic from I-30 and busy State Highway 78 and do it quickly. Dallas-based Texas Turnpike Corp., the company behind the toll road idea, said construction could begin as soon as 2015. Texas Turnpike officials say the project makes financial sense and meets a need as regional growth pushes north and east. The anticipated price tag, according to project manager and Texas Turnpike vice president Neal Barker, is less than $500 million.
