DALLAS COUNTY – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in conjunction with the city of Dallas, will conduct a public meeting to solicit comments on the proposed intersection improvement of State Highway (SH) 78 (Garland Road/East Grand Avenue) at the intersection with Gaston Avenue in the city of Dallas. The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, January 18 at the Dallas Arboretum – Rosine Hall, 8525 Garland Road in Dallas. The informal meeting will be in an open house format.
The proposed project would consist of reconfiguring the SH 78/Gaston intersection to improve traffic operations and mobility. The improvements would include the addition of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. The proposed project would require additional right of way to accommodate the proposed improvements.
TxDOT staff and consultants will be on hand to discuss the schematic with interested citizens. Maps showing the proposed project’s location and geometric design will be available for viewing and the public is encouraged to provide written comments.
The construction cost of the project is approximately $4.3 million and is anticipated to start in 2021 with completion within one year.
