International Parkway (IP) is the backbone of DFW’s landside transportation network, providing access to and from all of DFW’s terminals. IP’s six lane highway also provides regional connectivity to the state highway system and is part of both the National Highway Network and the Texas Highway Freight Network. Core pieces of IP’s infrastructure have reached or are nearing the end of their design life and need to be replaced.
To address this need for asset renewal and replacement, existing left-hand exit flyover bridges which provide access to the terminals from IP will be replaced with more intuitive and efficient right hand exits.
The new right-hand exit bridges will not only address the failing infrastructure but also create a more efficient airport roadway system to support the implementation of advanced mobility technologies.
- Apply new technologies and materials to build infrastructure for the future that lasts 100 years
- Reduce annual maintenance costs and risk of significant traffic disruptions
- Improve ground transportation access network efficiency and improve overall mobility throughout the airport
- Use environmentally friendly materials that reduce the carbon footprint of the project
