GRAPEVINE (DFWCOM.COM) – Drivers can now cruise through the DFW Connector without having to maneuver around construction cones or worry about detour signs. After more than three years of construction and nine months ahead of schedule, the project is done.
The DFW Connector project connects State Highways 114, 121 and other roads north of the DFW Airport in Grapevine.
“The DFW Connector is built to reduce congestion and get people into, around and out of the airport faster and safer,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “This project saved time and money, and it is built to serve residents and visitors in the Dallas/Fort well into the future.”
Drivers will save time as a result of the five reconstructed highway interchanges. The project doubled the number of lanes drivers can use and added direct connect ramps were none existed before. Nearly 200,000 drivers travel the roads affected by the project.
