GRAPEVINE - The $1.1 billion DFW Connector project to untangle highway traffic north of DFW International Airport is slated to wrap up by early October — a full nine months ahead of schedule.

The project, an overhaul of SH 114 and SH 121, will double capacity on a stretch that already sees 180,000 drivers each day. The corridor will be 24 lanes across at its widest spot, including main lanes, frontage roads and tolled managed lanes.

The DFW Connector will be the Texas Department of Transportation’s first highway in North Texas built as a public-private partnership. And the project benefited from an unprecedented $260 million infusion of federal stimulus dollars.
