Dallas Love Field Entry Road to Experience Lane Closures

Entry Road Enhancement Project Enters Next Phases

DALLAS – Dallas Love Field’s Entry Road Enhancement Project is set to enter its next phases with the closure of multiple lanes on both Herb Kelleher Way and Mockingbird Lane.

Starting Monday, Sept. 13:

  • The free right turn lane from Herb Kelleher Way to Mockingbird Lane and the free right turn lane from Mockingbird Lane to Herb Kelleher Way will be closed
  • Airport traffic westbound on Mockingbird Lane will need to turn into Herb Kelleher Way from the outside through lane
  • Similarly, outbound traffic on Herb Kelleher way will need to turn right onto westbound Mockingbird Lane from the outside through lane
  • Construction will last approximately one week

Starting Monday, Sept. 20:

  • The free right turn lanes in and out of the airport will be back in service
  • The two outbound through lanes on Herb Kelleher Way will be closed. The outbound dual left-turn lanes will be open, and the outside left lane will serve as a left-through lane
  • Vehicles heading west on Mockingbird Lane will have access to the right turn only lane
  • The inbound outside through lane of Herb Kelleher Way will be closed to through traffic, as will one of the left turn lanes into the airport from Mockingbird Lane
  • Closures are scheduled to continue for approximately one week

Increased Transit Time & Detours: Travelers are recommended to arrive at Dallas Love Field at least two hours prior to their departure time during the closure period as there will be significant impacts to all roadway users.  Posted speed limits will remain the same, but increased caution is advised for the safety of workers and roadway users. Warning signs and electronic message boards will be visible to alert motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists about the temporary lane closures. 

Drivers wishing to avoid Mockingbird Lane can take another east-west thoroughfare, such as Inwood Road, and proceed north on Cedar Springs road through to Herb Kelleher Way.

An alternate route to and from the terminal is available via Aubrey Avenue and Tom Braniff Lane to avoid a portion of Herb Kelleher Way during the closures.

Construction Activities: The purpose of the upcoming roadwork is to improve pedestrian safety elements on Herb Kelleher Way and Mockingbird Lane at Dallas Love Field Airport. During the two-week period, current sidewalks will be demolished, and new stamped, concrete crosswalks will be installed within the intersection. Electrical conduits will also be fitted for new pedestrian pushbuttons and streetlights.

Closure Period:  The closed lanes are expected to reopen by October 1, 2021. Dallas Love Field anticipates all construction activities of the Entry Road Enhancement project to be completed by Summer 2022. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to fulfill this project.

Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions.
