I-35W runs through the heart of Fort Worth which is among the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country. Traffic congestion along the corridor significantly impacts the bottom line of businesses and the quality of life for residents. Believing that transportation is critical to the economic vitality, livability and sustainability of our region, the 35W Coalition brings together concerned citizens, business leaders, land owners, developers, city, county and state elected officials and transportation experts to advocate for improvements along the I-35W North Corridor from downtown Fort Worth into Denton County.


We invite you to join our efforts – the 35W Coalition is only as strong as its membership base. Collectively, we can make a difference, help drive solutions to our region's transportation crisis and “Keep 35W Moving North!” Click here for more information on how to get involved.
