Improvements are taking place at our front door and beyond.

State Highways 114 and 121, located to the north of DFW Airport, will undergo $1 billion in improvements that will increase mobility, improve air quality and expand roadway capacity.  The eight-mile project, known as the DFW Connector, wraps up in 2014 and will eventually allow you to easily access the Airport’s north entrance – no matter where you are coming from – without exiting the highway.

We suggest travelers entering the Airport from the north allow time for potential construction delays. Additionally, please be sure to visit the website for information on the new entrance to the DFW Airport Remote north parking lot.

In order to limit the impact of traffic during the holidays, we will observe a no lane closure period over Christmas and New Year's.

The selected lane closures listed below are the ones expected to most affect your drive through the project. Please refer to our Lane Closures page  for a complete list of closures, as this e-mail does not list all closures. \
