DFW Connector Will Conduct Major Traffic Switch at DFW Airport
Beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 27 to 6:00 a.m. on Monday, April 30, NorthGate Constructors will conduct a major traffic switch at the north exit of DFW International Airport that will change the way motorists leave the airport. 

The following are the major changes that will occur after the traffic switch, as well as the associated closures during the switch: 

1.       When exiting northbound International Parkway at DFW Airport, all lanes to northbound SH 121, westbound SH 114 and IH-635 will move to the left onto detour pavement.
Associated closure during the switch: Full highway closure on northbound International Parkway north of DFW Airport.

2.       When exiting northbound International Parkway to eastbound SH 114, traffic will move to the right onto a new dedicated off-ramp.
Associated closure during the switch: Full ramp closure on the northbound International Parkway off-ramp to eastbound SH 114.

3.       As part of this switch, eastbound SH 114 east of International Parkway will move to the right (south) onto new pavement at the same time.
Associated closure during the switch: Full highway closure on eastbound SH 114 at the northbound SH 121 off-ramp.

*Please note: Once the switch is complete, travelers coming out of DFW Airport's north entrance will need to be in the correct lane BEFORE exiting the parking control plaza (north exit). Message boards will be in place to help direct traffic.
 

The $1.02 billion DFW Connector project is currently nine months ahead of schedule, with a completion date of late 2013. The project is being built under a comprehensive development agreement (CDA) between TxDOT and NorthGate Constructors.
