DALLAS -- The Texas Turnpike Authority is considering taking over a 25-mile highway project north of Dallas that could more than double the size of the metropolitan area's tollway system and result in the issuance of about $400 million of revenue bonds next year, an official said Friday.

At a meeting scheduled for Thursday, the authority plans to discuss whether it should commission engineering, traffic, and revenue feasibility studies for state highway 190, the east-west road that would run through north Dallas suburbs from state highway 78 to Interstate 635.
