CMTS began providing services to the North Texas Tollway Authority in 2009. We have participated as both a prime and as a sub-consultant. Specific project engagements include:
Construction Engineering Inspection (CEI)
President George Bush Turnpike — Eastern Extention
The President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) is a 30.5-mile, six-lane, limited access toll road linking commuters to high-tech corridors and corporate headquarters while providing motorist ease of access to Central Expressway (US 75), the Dallas North Tollway, IH 35E and LBJ Freeway (IH 635).
- 9.9-mile extension of the existing toll road
- Six-land capacity
- Enhanced east/west route connectivity
- Direct access to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
- 1-mile bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard
The PGBTEE offers significant east-west route access within major developing economic areas in the northern half of the Dallas Metroplex and was open and fully operational in 2011.

President George Bush Turnpike
Restriping Segment 3 — The project is located in Denton, Dallas, and Collin Counties on the President George Bush Tollway. Segment 3 runs from east of IH 35E to Midway. President George Bush Turnpike is limited access, high-speed Tollway facility operated by the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA). It is a major arterial for the Dallas Metroplex and surrounding area. As such, it is heavily traveled during the day and extremely congested during morning and evening rush hours.
An unusual aspect of the project was the coarse graded asphalt overlay. Extra care had to be taken to ensure that the overlay was not damaged during water blasting.
Segment 7 — This project extended from the SH 183 interchange with the President George Bush Tollway (PGBT) to the interchange of IH 30 and the PGBT interchange in the cities of Grand Prairie and Irving, Texas. The main lanes are owned by the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) and the frontage roads are owned by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The tollway consisted of three through lanes each direction, portions of a “peak hour lane” each direction and limited access ramps. The frontage road consisted of two lanes each direction broken by a section of the main lane with no frontage road.
The first phase of the project consisted of re-striping the main lanes and access ramps with a 60mil thermoplastic overlay placed by long-liner. During the second phase, the existing striping at the frontage road intersections with local streets was removed by hydro blasting and re-striped with 100mil thermoplastic. The edge lines of the frontage roads were removed by hydro blasting and re-striped with 100 mil thermoplastics by long-liner. Finally, linear delineation system (LDS) panels were installed on the direct connectors in the southern half of the SH 183/PGBT interchange. Delineator tabs were also placed on the top of the barrier on the direct connectors.
Segments 1 and 2 — This project extended from east of Jupiter Road to west of Preston Road on PGBT. This portion of the tollway lies on the boundary between the cities of Plano, Richardson and Dallas, Texas. It is a wholly owned facility of NTTA. The work consisted of removing and re-striping of the access ramps within the project limits. The access ramps at Preston Road and Coit Road were high traffic volume and/or critical access ramps which required special efforts to minimize traffic disruption.
Addison Airport Toll Tunnel and Segment V – This project consisted of operations in two physically separated locations: PGBT Segment 5 from McArthur Road to Belt Line Road in the cities of Irving and Las Colinas, Texas and the Addison Airport Toll Tunnel (AATT) in Addison, Texas.
The first phase of the work consisted of removing the intersection markings at the intersection of the AATT and Midway Road followed by removal of the edge lines within the tunnel itself. All markings were removed by hydro blasting and re-striping with 100mil thermoplastic placed by Mini Mac. In addition to the thermoplastic, the existing traffic button along the median of the tunnel was removed and replaced.
The second phase consisted of re-striping all the Segment 5 main lane stripe and access ramp stripe with 60 mil thermoplastic overlay placed by long-liner. This section of the tollway is one of the major access routes for the Dallas metroplex. The Contractor elected to do the work during the day. Because of the need to minimize traffic disruption, working hours were severely restricted to accommodate morning and afternoon rush hour.
