Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport celebrated the joining of the SkyLink automated peoplemover guideway with the International Terminal D, a major milestone in the $2.6 billion capital development program.
The guideway is supported by 376 concrete columns, and the entire project uses 132,097 cubic yards of concrete. The heated guideway will allow continuous operation during ice or snow.
The new SkyLink, an automated peoplemover system, is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2005 and will unite DFW's existing and future terminals.
SkyLink will also enable DFW to meet its goal of a 30-minute or less passenger connection time.
