1. The Gaylord ramps opened up and were working great - then for reasons unknown they started doing construction work on the awnings and structures above the toll gates. It seems like they have been fiddling with those awnings for weeks and weeks.

I thought they looked (and worked) fine before - was there something specific that caused them to rework them?

2. The ramps appear to be closed on weekends, blocked off with cones. Why? Is this related to their awning obsession? Will they open up full-time soon?

Just curious!

Derek,

The original toll plazas were temporary. When the extension into the Frisco was opened, the design of the toll plazas to be used through the Frisco area was not complete.

The following is information I received from NTTA regarding the construction process.

The contractor started installing the Teflon coated fabric to the steel canopy frame of the Gaylord ramp plazas during the week of May 7. The installation process requires them to gradually increase the tension applied to the fabric over a period of about a week. That is the reason for the daily lane closures. The bulk of the work has been done over the weekends when traffic volumes are lowest. Several items of work are still to be completed including trim and technology installation. All the work is scheduled to be complete by the end of May.

Thanks
