Medal of Honor motorcade to pass through Sanger

The annual trek of Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients flying into DFW Airport and traveling to Medal of Honor Weekend put on by the Medal of Honor Host City Program of Gainesville will be occurring Thursday, April 25, 2024.

As usual, there will be a large motorcade of public safety vehicles honoring and escorting these National Heroes all the way to their destination in Gainesville. This year will be exceptional with a historic number of public safety agencies participating in the motorcade. As usual, the motorcade will come through Sanger on I-35.  

Current estimates are expecting the motorcade to stretch 8-9 miles long with well over 550 vehicles participating. At this time, they are expecting the motorcade to leave the staging area on the South end of DFW Airport tentatively between 3:00 p.m. –5:00 p.m. 

With such a significant number of participants, citizens traveling along this motorcade route need to be aware of traffic delays that will occur during this short time span. Public safety agencies are requesting that citizens be aware of the motorcade and pull to the right lanes when approached from behind. 

Additionally, some parts of Highways 183, 360, 114, 121 and many access points along I-35W and I-35E will be temporarily shut down as agencies work to get the motorcade onto the roadway and escort these honored guests from DFW on to their destination in Gainesville.

They are requesting that all media please assist this public safety effort by making notifications to your audience about this historic event.
