Ashlee Engle-Harwell, a TWU senior and English major from Carrollton, recently won a $1,000 gas card as part of a contest to name the new managed lanes of the LBJ Express and North Tarrant Express construction projects.

Engle-Harwell was one of 13 randomly selected winners of the “Name the Lanes” contest, where gas cards valued at $2,500, $1,000, $500 or $100 were given to community members who submitted suggested names for the new managed lanes.

TEXpress Lanes was the selected name for the managed lanes, which are new to the North Texas region.
