What is a “design-build” project?
Design-Build is a method to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design–builder or design–build contractor. Design-build projects are used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.
What improvements are included in the SH 360 South Project?
- Four-lane toll road between the existing SH 360 frontage roads
- 9.7-mile corridor from Green Oaks Boulevard to US 287.
- Continuous non-tolled frontage roads
- US 287 north and southbound mainlane bridges over SH 360
- Cross street improvements to allow for safer and easier traffic flow
- A portion of the US 287 northbound frontage road and ramps
What kind of construction and lane closures can I expect from this project?
The improvements being considered would primarily consist of construction between the current frontage roads. There will be bridges built at several key intersections along the project that will take drivers over SH 360. During the construction of the bridges, drivers will use detours around the area of the current crossings so that access can be maintained. After construction of the bridges, and the new frontage road between Heritage Parkway and US 287, the construction will be concentrated between the frontage roads and lane closures are expected to be kept at a minimum.
Where do I get answers for tolling questions?

When were the frontage roads built?
SH 360 frontage roads were constructed from south of I-20 to US 287 in three individual phases, with allowance for main lanes as traffic warrants. The first phase from south of I-20 to New York Avenue was completed in 1994. The second phase from New York Avenue to East Broad Street was completed in 1997. The third phase from East Broad Street to US 287 was opened in 2003. As the corridor has developed, TxDOT has worked with the cities of Arlington, Grand Prairie and Mansfield to fund intersection improvements, turn lanes and traffic signals to safely accommodate the increasing traffic demands.
Are further improvements planned for SH 360 south of I-20 and the SH 360/US 287 interchange?
The ultimate design for SH 360 south of I-20 includes an additional two lanes each direction north of Debbie Lane and an additional one lane each direction south of Debbie Lane. The ultimate design, which is currently unfunded, also includes a fully directional interchange at US 287.
