The Mountain Creek Lake Bridge is a bridge in Dallas County, Texas. The bridge is part of the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) system. It is tolled in both directions (toll is collected on the west end of the bridge) and the lanes of the Mountain Creek Lake Bridge toll plaza are equipped for electronic toll collection via TollTag.

The bridge connects Spur 303 between Grand Prairie and Dallas across Mountain Creek Lake.

Planned parallel bridge[edit]

There are future plans to build a second bridge parallel to the existing bridge (which is currently only one lane in each direction), but no date has been set for any construction.[citation needed]
