Interstate 820 - Fort Worth, Texas

Interstate 820 - Inner Loop
Interstate 820 progress northwest from Interstate 20 to Westland and White Settlement southwest of Fort Worth. The Fort Worth beltway passes under a tri-level stack-interchange with Interstate 20 just ahead of the Team Ranch Road (Exit 1A) off-ramp. Photo taken 10/19/03.
Exit 1A leaves Interstate 820 north for the adjacent frontage road to Team Ranch Road. The westbound flyover to Interstate 20 from Winscott Road and U.S. 377 (Benbrook Highway) and the eastbound Interstate 20 ramp to Interstate 820 pass overhead. Team Ranch Road crosses Interstate 820 between the frontage roads and an adjacent subdivision. Photo taken 10/19/03.
The next three interchanges of Interstate 820 north serve Chapin Road (Exit 1B), Texas 580 Spur (Exit 2), and Interstate 30 (Exits 3A/B). Team Ranch Road crosses over the Fort Worth beltway one mile south of the Chapin Road diamond interchange. Photo taken 10/19/03.

Many symmetrical-stack interchanges in Texas are inverted in that the left-hand movement departs ahead of the right-hand movement, counter to that of the traditional stack interchange. Therefore Exit 3A serves Interstate 30 west to Weatherford rather than Interstate 30 east to Fort Worth.
