A major road construction project in North Texas has reached the finish line six months ahead of schedule.

The DFW Connector project directly north of DFW Airport involved rebuilding State Highway 121 to accommodate a new interchange at Interstate 635, and it added direct connectors to FM 2499 and to State Highway 26.

In all, workers constructed 20 new bridges and paved over 220,000 cubic yards of concrete.

"This project is good news for drivers and is proof of our commitment to keep traffic moving in the region," says J. Bruce Bugg, chairman of the Texas Transportation Commission. "Reducing congestion in our metro areas is an ambitious task, but we're committed through the Texas Clear Lanes initiative to work with our state and local leaders to make a difference for drivers."

The $370 million project is part of TxDOT's Texas Clear Lanes initiative.
