Rowlett Profile
Rowlett at a Glance
Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Ray Hubbard, Rowlett is fast becoming a center for business and retail in North Texas. Rowlett is located 19 miles east of downtown Dallas within minutes of both Dallas Love Field and Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) airports. Our city has a population of over 58,000 and projections show the population growing to over 60,000 in the next few years. The citizens of Rowlett are educated with 32% of the adult population having attained a bachelor's degree or higher. 

Rowlett is one of the most accessible cities in North Texas. Over the past two years, our City has focused on building out its infrastructure. In the fourth quarter of 2012, North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) completed the eastern extension of the President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Authority (DART) completed its Blue Line light rail route. PGBT connects the City to DFW Airport and to Interstate 30. While DART's Blue Line provides easy access to Uptown, downtown Dallas, and the surrounding cities.
