This wide span of concrete at the northeast corner of the intersection of 360 and 183 appears to be one of the last remains of the Amon Carter Airport (also called the Greater Southwest Airport) that existed at this location until the construction of DFW airport, which opened in 1973 or 1974. Most of the Amon Carter airport was actually on the southeast side of the 360/183 intersection.
