The New Chisholm Trail Parkway Means Fast Commutes to Fort Worth

Stretching 27.6 miles from Fort Worth to Johnson county, southwest of the metroplex, the Chisholm Trail Parkway is a project 9-years in the making. Linking the previously cut-off suburbs of Joshua and Cleburne it promises to bring rapid development all along the corridor.

The Chisholm Trail Parkway is run by the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) and, as such, is a toll road. Drivers with a toll tag can expect to pay just less than $5 to drive the complete length of the road. Without a toll tag, the NTTA charges a little more than $7 using their electronic Zip Cash billing system.

The benefits to drivers using the new parkway are manifold. Commutes that used to take nearly an hour have been cut to as little as 20-minutes. Besides the time savings, fuel savings also quickly adds up to hundreds of dollars a month.

Construction is still ongoing through the end of 2014, particularly in the downtown Fort Worth section of the parkway where it connects to I-30, which itself is currently being rebuilt. In the meantime drivers must use Montgomery or University to enter the road from the downtown area. Additionally, ramps linking I-20 are not quite yet complete and surface streets must be used there as well.

Is it all worth it? For residents of Joshua and Cleburne it soon will be as drive times from their rural abodes to the city are slashed by as much as 50%. Drivers utilizing I-35 will also benefit from the reduction in congestion as well.

Advantages to Rural Living

Horse3Many people dream of an idyllic country lifestyle, with room to spread out, no nosy neighbors, low crime rates, good school districts, and a little spread of land with a simple home. Sounds great in theory, but is rural living all it’s cracked up to be?

It sure can be.

In Texas in particular, rural areas boast low property taxes compared to urban areas, and at the same time provide great schools with low student to teacher ratios. Small class sizes mean that your child gets more one-on-one attention than they would in a larger school district in the city.

Lower populations mean lower traffic and, ironically, a commute that is often faster than those of city dwellers. All that stop-and-go city traffic is an enormous waste of your precious time. Inner-city traffic is often many times worse than commuter traffic entering and leaving the city. If you’re going to be stuck in your car anyway, why not make the commute to your own peaceful abode just a few miles away from the bright lights of the city?

The biggest reason people cite for moving to the country is the staple of American liberty: Freedom. Many neighborhoods in the city and suburbs are very nice, though expensive, master-planned communities with overbearing and restrictive home owner’s associations. These HOAs dictate everything from the color of your house, to the type of grass you plant on your lawn. Need a shed in your back yard? That’s a shame, because your HOA won’t allow it. Want a vegetable garden? You’d better make sure it’s permitted. Having guests over who need to park their car in the street? That may not be allowed either, and violations of HOA rules could mean fines or even the loss of your home!

On your own acreage in the country, you’re free to do nearly anything you like. You can paint your house, plant a vegetable garden, have any sort of lawn you like, or even no lawn at all.

Did we mention the peace and quiet?

With your own place in the country you’re far removed from the hustle and bustle, and the stress of the urban rat-race. Imagine being able to stretch out on your porch in the cool night air with a nice beverage in one hand, able to gaze up and actually see the stars! You certainly can’t do that in the city!

We have homes and properties available in rural locations just minutes from the DFW metroplex.

Are you ready to get your own place in the country? Do you have good credit, but aren’t sure if you can afford your own home? You can do it, and we can help.
