GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s a bad weekend for traffic around North Texas malls because of the statewide tax free holiday.  But construction is compounding the problem around Grapevine Mills and other shopping locations in Northeast Tarrant County.

KRLD’s Matt Thomas Reports:

The DFW Connector project is not stopping for tax free weekend.  Kristin Schropp with the connector project says various closures and delays will be in place, as they normally are on weekends.
Add the lane and road closures to the off ramps to DFW airport being shut down, and you’ve got a real headache. That’s why alternate routes are being suggested for both shoppers and flyers headed to the airport through early Monday.

Scrhopp says tax free shoppers and those taking a flight should allow a lot of extra time.
