Just looking for some opinions on the new Chisholm trail parkway connecting cleburne and downtown fort worth. Do you think the new toll road will lessen the traffic on I-35 or will folks shy away from the toll road due to the associated fees? We are looking to move and burleson has caught our eye but I know 35 traffic can be pretty horrendous.

Well, it's really not gonna do much for relieving traffic on 35W. It's mainly to relieve traffic on the main SWFW streets of Hulen and Bryant Irving.

But it will at least give people on that side of Fort Worth another option to downtown.

Any impact on 35W will be minimal. It's too far west to be of much help to Burleson. I've never seen the supposedly horrendous traffic on the South Freeway. It slows down at times, and then it clears up. I'd much rather deal with that than the North Freeway. If South Freeway traffic is too much for you, you shouldn't live anywhere near a city.

The road might actually help in southwest Fort Worth. Average incomes there are somewhat higher than some other areas, so people may not mind as much paying for the road. South of Fort Worth, the road crosses open fields with little traffic demand; I'm not sure why they're building there.

If you ever tried to take 1187 East to I-35W in the morning you might think otherwise. Alot of those folks might use the new road (I included) which should help a little...

It will do little, if anything, to relieve the local traffic on Hulen and Bryant Irving. People driving on those streets during rush hour are going to businesses and homes in the area. They're not driving to Crowley, Benbrook, or Cleburne.

Actually I think it will help local traffic a lot. Since they have closed down access to 183 east from Bryant Irving the Hulen area has been a mess. Plus it will be so much easier to take I-20 west, instead of having to get off I-20 at Hulen and then getting back on at Bryant Irving. And now there will be a quick way to get to downtown without having to use Hulen or Bryant Irving which are not the quickest past the rail yard. I can't wait!

I don't know if it will help with traffic on I-35W but it will be nice to have another route out of town if you were headed to Austin and beyond on a Friday at 5pm.
