Dallas North Tollway takes aim at Grayson County
GRAYSON COUNTY, Texas (KTEN) --Grayson County leaders continue to look at the possibility of the Dallas North Tollway connecting into Grayson County.
The existing toll road originates in downtown Dallas and currently runs north 33 miles to U.S. 380 in Prosper, Texas. Construction is already underway to extend the Tollway another 13 miles north to the Collin-Grayson County line.
Grayson County Judge Bill Magers said the access road for that section has just opened to traffic.
"What we need to do in Grayson County is make sure we lasso the economic impact, and that we control the toll roads, and we control where it goes versus our friends to the south," he said.
Magers adds that the main lanes of the Dallas North Tollway are scheduled to reach Grayson County in 2030.
