Any questions about DFW or any of its carriers?

New Taxiway Construction

Postby ctempleton3 on Sun Jun 30, 2013 1:54 pm

There appears to be some new taxiway construction on the UPS pad. The construction is where taxiway C and WF would meet if they did. Google Earth/Maps imagery is updated to show the new construction. What is the plan on this extension? Are they going to build WF across to 18R? If so how are they planning to handle the emergency road that is so much lower?

Here is the link to what I am talking about:,-97.057772+(New+Taxiway+Construction)

Welcome to DFW Tower. My understanding is that this taxiway extension is being built to allow UPS aircraft a second access point to/from the 18s. I'm not sure how the emergency road will be handled though.
