This article reports that the North Central Texas Council of Governments has approved a 10-year transportation improvement plan worth $6.4 billion recently in September 2004. Toll revenue bonds will finance a majority of the projects, although state, local, and federal contributions are also expected to pay part of the costs. The 10-year improvement plan also includes the addition of freeway lanes and toll express lanes along busy Interstate 35W, from downtown Fort Worth to the Denton County line and through the Alliance area.
