The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport received a Letter of Intent from the Federal Aviation Administration on July 27, committing to a maximum of $180 million in Airport Improvement Program grant funding for two new end-around taxiway systems.

End-around taxiways allow arriving aircrafts to taxi around the airport’s seven active runways, rather than wait to cross the runways as they do now.
