DALLAS (AP) — Work on Dallas Area Rapid Transit rail service to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is several months ahead of schedule.

DART officials on Tuesday announced the 5-mile extension of the Orange Lines will open on Monday, Aug. 18.

The $152 million extension had been scheduled to open in December but DART officials say the rail station should open early and even under budget.

Rail service will be offered via DFW Terminal A. A DART statement says the connection will bring the nation's longest light rail system to 90 miles.

DART is the state's largest municipal rail system, serving Dallas and a dozen surrounding cities.

While no DART stations are planned for Fort Worth, the TEX Rail commuter line that would connect downtown Fort Worth to Terminal B at D/FW Airport is expected to begin serving passengers in 2018, according to Joan Hunter, a spokeswoman with the Fort Worth Transportation Commission, or The T.
