Notes

Abstract: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the issues involved with population growth in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It suggests that the tremendous population, employment and traffic growth expected over the next two decades, in tandem with anticipated passenger and cargo expansions at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, will make the funnel virtually impassable, unless new roadways and interchanges are constructed that can separate commuters from airport-bound traffic. What's more, the potential for DFW to become the world's premier commercial gateway may be imperiled if steps aren't taken quickly to improve road access for passengers and shippers. With the ongoing explosion of domestic and international commerce, improving ground access to DFW Airport has become an economic development imperative for the region, state and nation.
