RedBull Air Race Traffic Plan
Posted on Sep 2nd, 2014

Citizens of far North Fort Worth,
Public Information Traffic Plan
On September 4 through 7, 2014 at Texas Motor Speedway will be hosting the Red Bull Air Race.
Thursday September 4, 2014 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm (Qualifications, Closed to the public)
Friday September 5, 2014 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm (Qualifications, Closed to the Public)
            Saturday September 6, 2014 Races will start around 1:50pm to 5:00pm
            Sunday September 7, 2014 Races will start around 11:20am to 3:45pm
On Thursday and Friday there will be no schedule lane closures for HWY 114 and HWY 156. NOTE:  During qualification times the roads around Texas Motor Speedway will be CLOSED per the Federal Aviation Administration. Roads will be CLOSED on track property specifically, Dale Earnhardt Way, parts of Victory Circle, parts of Lone Star Circle and Harmonson RD, Gordon and Mark Martin Dr.  
On Saturday and Sunday Dale Earnhardt will be periodically CLOSED throughout the day when the air planes are flying.
For the Saturday and Sunday races at Texas Motor Speed Way that fort Worth Police Department will utilize the same traffic patterns utilized during the June INDY car races to assist Spector’s in both entering and leaving the speedway. However, construction and flow may dictate changes and any time. Drivers should follow cone patterns and directions from officers
In addition to SH 114, it is planned to run an outbound contraflow on FM 156 from Petty Place south to HWY 114 on Saturday and Sunday . This will provide an extra lane of exiting traffic for persons parked on the Westside of the complex. These patterns along with added changes on the interior will allow for traffic to move more efficiently into and out of Texas Motor Speedway.
Persons coming to the speedway are asked to follow the directions of both the police and the traffic control attendants. These people are there to help the spectators get to parking lots and out of the complex, please follow the patterns. All lanes and gates will permit entry so the Fort Worth Police Department asks patrons to stay in their designated lanes once in the cone pattern.
The following Public Information is for inbound and outbound traffic around Texas Motor Speedway for Saturday September 6 and Sunday September 7, 2104.
I-35W both north and south will have adequate access to the speedway.  When exiting, there will be two lanes available.  FM 156 both north and south provides efficient and expeditious routing to the Speedway.  From the south, access to FM 156 can be had from both Loop 820 and Hwy. 287.  FM 156 can be accessed from I-35 north of Sanger. 
Travel from the east will be improved by using the 114 bypass, which will provide two lanes of traffic into the Speedway.  This route provides an efficient route from the mid-cities area. 
Contra Flow on HWY 114: At 6:00am the Fort Worth Police Department will began setting up inbound contra lanes from I35W to HWY 156. Contra flow will start around 9:00am
WEST IS BEST- One of the easiest and quickest routes inbound is to utilize SH 114 from the west.  Access to this route can be made from Hwy. 287, approximately 11 miles west of the Speedway.  Use of this route will allow you to enter the Speedway through Jarrett Drive, which may also be utilized as an exit gate.
Traffic exiting the Speedway after the race will be placed into different traffic lanes from the exit gates from the Speedway.  Each of these lanes will go to a specific major roadway. The following information provides driving instruction from each exit gate:
Mark Martin- On Fri-Sun, Vehicles exiting mark martin will initially be directed onto the southbound Service Road of I-35W, and into the “Texas Turnaround”.  Vehicles will travel south to turnaround, under IH35, then northbound on the IH 35 Service Road.  Vehicles may access IH 35 north bound from the Service Road, or continue traveling to Earnhardt Drive where they will be directed back onto the south bound Service Road in the left lane and continue south the IH 35 access ramp and on to the freeway. Those who must travel east who have exited the track to IH 35 W (S) follow IH 35 south to SH 170 then east on 170 to SH 114.  Those who have exited IH 35 W (N) travel north to FM 1171, then East to HWY 377 and South to HWY 114 E.
At such time as contra flowed traffic volume east on 114 allows, the south bound service road of I-35 from Mark Martin will be allowed to proceed east on 114 in the contra flow lane into Roanoke.
Earnhardt- Traffic will be directed south if in the far right traffic lane to the south access ramp to IH 35 W (S), or around the turnaround to the IH 35 service road northbound and onto the freeway.   Vehicles in the contra-flowed two left traffic lanes will be directed north on IH 35 W.  For any vehicle exiting north that desires to travel south, routing should proceed to the 1171 exit and turn around to go south.  To travel east to Dallas the best route is to travel north on I-35W to Denton and then use I-35E southbound to Dallas.
Contra Flow for HWY 114
LaBonte (Gate A) - There are two lanes of traffic exiting this gate, and will be directed eastbound in the westbound traffic lanes.  The left or north lane will be directed north on to the I-35 service road.  The south or right lane will be directed east onto SH 114 east as a normal directional traffic flow. For persons wanting to travel south from the Speedway, the most efficient routing is east to the SH 114 and Hwy 377 intersection and travel south.  Southbound vehicles may then proceed south to Loop 820.  Those who must travel north and find themselves on 114 east bound may utilize Hwy 377 north to 1171, then west to IH 35 W (N) or south to Hwy 170 and west to IH 35. 
Allison- There are two lanes of traffic exiting this gate, the right lane has the option to go east on SH114 or go south on I35.The left lane will be directed east on SH114. For persons wanting to go north or south on I35, they will travel east on 114 to Hwy 377. Go south on 377.  Southbound vehicles can continue south on 377 to Loop 820, which is only 12 miles.  Persons needing to go north should exit at westbound SH 170 to I35W.  SH 170 intersects 377 just south of the 114/377 intersection. 
Jarrett- There are three lanes of traffic exiting Jarrett.  The two left lanes will be directed east to the southbound I-35W entrance ramp for travel south on I-35W.  For persons wanting to travel north they need to go to Eagle Parkway and turn around to take I-35W north.  Persons who have the need to travel east should proceed to SH 170 and take it east to SH 114. Sunday only will allow for the left lane to also allow an option for the east 114 route. The two right lanes of traffic exiting Jarrett Drive will be directed west and formed into one lane of traffic. This traffic needs to go west to 287, which is about 11 miles.  At 287, traffic needing to go south can use 287 or Business 287.  Business 287 leads to Loop 820 and avoids the I-35W traffic.
Contra on HWY 156
Petty- There are four lanes of traffic exiting Petty.  The far right lane will go north on FM 156.  Traffic needing to access I35W can use 407 east in Justin or go north to 380.  Traffic needing to go north can stay on 156 to I-35. The second lane to the north will have the option of going northbound or southbound.
The two left lanes we be directed south onto 156, using a contraflow to HWY 114.  The left or contraflow lane will move to the southbound lanes and continue south on HWY 156.  North or southbound I-35W can be accessed at SH 170, which is several miles to the south of Eagle Parkway.  Persons needing to go east on 114 can use SH 170 east to get to 114.  The regular lane of 156 will be directed south on 156 to Loop 820, which is sixteen miles south of the Speedway. 
During the contraflow, no northbound 156 traffic will be allowed from HWY 114 to Petty.
