1.5-mile stretch of the Dallas North Tollway closed Jan. 8-10 to demolish main lane toll plaza
A 1.5-mile stretch of the Dallas North Tollway will be closed Jan. 8-10 to demolish the main lane toll plaza at Keller Springs Road on the Dallas North Tollway. Part of the North Texas Tollway Authority’s move to cashless tolling, the weekend demolition will close all or most lanes in both directions.
• Saturday, Jan. 8, by 9 a.m. until Sunday, Jan. 9 by 3 p.m. — Full road closure northbound and southbound between Keller Springs Road and Belt Line Road.
• Sunday, Jan. 9, from 3 p.m. until Monday, Jan. 10, by 5 a.m. — One lane open northbound and southbound between Keller Springs Road and Belt Line Road.
• Monday, Jan. 10, by 5 a.m. — Closure ends; three lanes reopen northbound and southbound between Keller Springs Road and Belt Line Road.
“The demolition is planned over the weekend when there is less traffic, and we expect to reopen all three lanes in each direction before the Monday morning rush hour,” said Elizabeth Mow, NTTA director of project delivery. “The closures are necessary to ensure the safety of drivers and crews as we remove the overhead structures, supporting columns and toll booths.”
The NTTA anticipates traffic delays and disruptions over the weekend. Drivers are asked to seek alternate routes and to allow extra time to drive through the area. All closures are subject to weather conditions and may be postponed if necessary.

A critical piece of the NTTA’s switch to cashless tolling, the demolition wraps up a series of major closures on the Dallas North Tollway to remove the old toll plazas at Keller Springs Road and Parker Road. The Parker Road toll plaza was demolished last weekend. Once demolition and related construction at the toll plazas is complete, three continuous lanes will be open along the entire 30-mile length of the tollway.
