Highway lanes, ramps closed in Grapevine

Highway lanes in Grapevine and two ramps to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport were closed Friday evening because of work on the DFW Connector.

The main lanes of eastbound Texas 114 and northbound Texas 121 are expected to reopen by 6 a.m. Monday. The airport ramps will remain closed through mid-2013. Both closures are scheduled to happen at 8 p.m.

The highway lane closures will prompt traffic to be rerouted to the eastbound Texas 114 frontage road between Main Street and International Parkway in Grapevine. Meanwhile, crews will work on the existing closed lanes.

Also closing are the eastbound Texas 114 ramp to the airport and the southbound International Parkway ramp to the airport service road.

Eastbound traffic on the Texas 114 ramp will be rerouted to Airfield Drive via Texan Trail. Southbound traffic on the International Parkway ramp also will be diverted to Airfield Drive.
