DFW Connector Nearing Completion

Sep 18, 2013 10:22AM ● Published by tina

Roughly four years in the making, the DFW Connector is nearing completion nearly nine months ahead of schedule.

According to NorthGate Constructors the $1.02 billion project should be completely finished by the end of October— nearly nine months ahead of schedule. Designed and constructed under a comprehensive development agreement (CDA) between the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and NorthGate Constructors, the DFW Connector Project began construction in February of 2010. 

The timely completion of the project was due mostly in part to its design-build process. In this time and cost saving practice, construction begins where design is complete while future plans are developed for other areas of the project are developed in parallel.

Roughly four years in the making, the DFW Connector includes massive improvements to 8.4 miles of four highways, two interchanges and a total of five bridges. Two flyover lanes have already lightened the load for travelers on SH121 and SH114 easing congestion and the need to take William D. Tate Avenue to switch between highways.
