Hi,

I’m exploring jobs in downtown Ft. Worth and would be interested in living in the part of Keller near I-35.

When will the reconstruction of I-35 be completed and do people expect the commute from Keller to Ft. Worth to be reasonable?

Thanks

The segment from Heritage Trace to 28th Street is substantially complete right now, with tolled managed lanes open (though those are very expensive at times). The southern end by downtown should be complete by the end of the year.

Presumably you’re looking at that part of far north Fort Worth with Keller ISD schools and/or Keller mailing addresses which is near I-35W. The city of Keller proper (east of 377/railroad) will have worse commute times to downtown Fort Worth.

That said, you should keep in mind that the expansion of I-35W is not really adding in any new free capacity compared to the freeway that previously existed, although the freeway design has been updated to present-day standards. So I would expect little in the way of commute time improvement if you don't plan on using the toll lanes.

I live near 820 and I just do not shop at businesses on 35N. Daily back-ups, crazy drivers, switches in exits, who needs it....

And once the part from Heritage Trace is completed, I’ve heard TXDOT will start on the next segment to the north.

Short answer: if you work downtown, live to the south in Burleson or Benbrook.

Actually, if you can easily get to the 121 split off of East Loop 820, you can shoot straight to downtown. Very easy commute.

I used to work downtown and I'm in North Richland Hills. Now I work in Forest Hill and that route is my backup if there's big problems on East Loop 820 (which happens sometimes, especially at the Trinity River bridges).

So NRH, Watauga, Hurst will all be a relatively easy commute downtown also.
