Here’s What Drivers Are Saying About CTP
The Chisholm Trail Parkway was an idea more than 50 years in the making. Now that the toll road is open to the public, connecting drivers to their destination is faster, safer and easier. See what is being said about mobility on the CTP.

“A commute that normally takes 40 minutes took less than 20 minutes…‎Once it is totally landscaped and complete it will be a perfect asset for Fort Worth, Tarrant County and Johnson County. A true work of art.” J. Jordan, Fort Worth

“I took the Chisholm Trail Parkway to work this morning and it was fantastic. Thanks for building it for me! My normal commute takes me around 40 minutes. Today, I arrived at work about 10 minutes earlier…Love it – got my TCU toll tag and everything.” Michael W., Fort Worth
