Message from the Mayor

Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, let us not forget that for 240 years, our liberty and way of life has been secured by those willing to fight for our nation. We owe all those who have worn the uniform of the United States a debt that cannot be repaid.

Yet we owe the special obligation of remembrance to those who have given, in Abraham Lincoln's words, the "last full measure of devotion." They selflessly offered their own lives so that others may live, and our democracy endures.

“Mere words pale in the face of so profound a sacrifice. Let us honor the fallen by our deeds: respecting and caring for the veterans who have returned home, assisting our military families with life's burdens, and ensuring that a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

In our memories, those we have lost are forever young and forever brave. In the days to come--and especially on this Memorial Day--they are forever in our hearts."

May God bless our military, and may God Bless The United States of America, may she always be the greatest, most powerful nation on earth.

NTE Says "Know Before You Go"

The North Tarrant Express (NTE) project consists of a series of major highway improvements to the critical I-820 and SH-121/183 (Airport Freeway) corridor between I-35 West and Industrial Boulevard in North Tarrant County. The NTE will relieve congestion, improve safety and provide for anticipated traffic growth in one of the country’s fastest developing regions.nte mapw logo

The project will improve the efficiency of the highway system by offering drivers a reliable choice during heavy congestion between the general purpose lanes and new toll managed lanes. The project will reconstruct interchanges and upgrade existing facilities to optimize operations.

Construction began in late 2010 and is on fast track for completion by 2015.

The NTE is being designed, built, financed, operated and maintained by NTE Mobility Partners, which is working in close collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and local communities. This important highway project will be wholly owned by TxDOT.

In partnership with local communities and the state, NTE Mobility Partners is committed to developing and operating the safest, most advanced and reliable roadways for drivers and their families.

Resouces exist online notifying commuters of project timelineslane closures, and detours.

An open house was held in 2010 just before the project broke ground, video of which can be seen here.
