Drivers on state highways 114 and 121 know about the traffic headache near the highway exchange. The DFW Connector Project hopes to fix the problem.
Officials at the Texas Department of Transportation said NorthGate Constructors will start working on the project early next month. The company has started setting out 50 mph signs as crews get ready to start working.
The project costs more than $1 billion and will be done in phases. The connector will make wider lanes and bridges and install toll lanes on certain stretches of road.
The project covers roughly 8 miles of road and has an expected completion date of 2014. Six miles of the road project remain unfunded.
