Eastbound Airport Freeway drivers taking northbound Texas 121 at the 121/183 split will exit from the right lane beginning Sunday morning, according to a news release from the North Tarrant Express.

“This will be the final configuration for this exit,” the release says.

The $2.5 billion project to rebuild main lanes and frontage roads and create toll lanes on 13 1/2 miles of Northeast Loop 820 and Texas 121/183 is 88 percent complete, the news release says. The project stretches from Interstate 35W to Industrial Boulevard.

Originally set for mid-2015 completion, the work is ahead of schedule and could be finished by the end of 2014.
