Relief is in sight for drivers trying to navigate the massive DFW Connector project.

The $1 billion project, a complete reconstruction of the interchange north of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, is running well ahead of schedule. It is now expected to be finished by summer 2013 -- a full year ahead of schedule.

"Currently, the DFW Connector project is 74 percent complete and, by the end of this year, we'll be 85 percent complete with the project," Kristen Schropp, Northgate Constructors spokeswoman.

"Originally, the project was scheduled to be complete in 2014, and now we'll be one year ahead of schedule and be complete in mid-summer of 2013," she said.

Project managers credit the 24-seven work schedule and the collaboration between all of the groups involved in the project.

Generally favorable weather has also played a factor.
