Dallas Love Field to host virtual meetings on alternate entry analysis

 

DALLAS - All Dallas-area residents are invited to join two upcoming virtual community meetings to learn about the Alternate Entry Analysis for a second entrance at Dallas Love Field (DAL).

 

The virtual meetings, scheduled for June 30 and July 23, will provide neighbors the opportunity to gain insight and learn about the proposed alternate entry options, as well as provide feedback. All community members, including public officials, aviation enthusiasts, DAL customers, local businesses and residents are encouraged to attend and understand the project directly from DAL team members.

 

The Alternate Entry Analysis was undertaken to address safety and mobility concerns, as well as the operational risks with a single point of entry to the nation’s busiest medium-hub airport with specific attention to the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Herb Kelleher Way. This interchange has experienced significant growth of both passenger and regional traffic in recent years. As part of the analysis, this intersection was found to have an average daily traffic count of over 80,000.

 

This project, led by the Department of Aviation in coordination with consultant firm Ricondo & Associates and the North Central Texas Council of Governments, has used research from various analyses and passenger surveys to identify a shortlist of potential entries in order to address these growing concerns.

 

Alternatives were evaluated based on their ability to provide an alternative evacuation route in the event the current entry is blocked due to an incident, as well as traffic impacts, environmental and air quality impacts, and the ability to accommodate an automated people mover system.
