The purpose of the public hearing is to present the planned improvements and to solicit public comment on the proposed construction of a deck plaza over the mainlanes of I-35 east from Marsalis Avenue to Ewing Avenue in Dallas County, Texas.


The City of Dallas, in conjunction with TxDOT, is proposing to construct a deck plaza over I-35E from Marsalis Avenue to Ewing Avenue in Dallas County, Texas. The proposed project would consist of constructing a deck within TxDOT right of way, above the I-35E mainlanes from Marsalis Avenue to Ewing Avenue, for a distance of approximately 0.2 mile. The deck would be constructed to ultimately create an approximate 5.5-acre urban deck plaza, sponsored by the City of Dallas. The deck itself would be constructed at the same level as the existing southbound I-35E frontage roads to provide access to the deck plaza from the frontage roads. Depending on funding, the proposed project may be constructed in phases. The construction of the deck plaza would allow the City of Dallas the opportunity to create various amenities, such as parallel parking along the frontage roads, and pedestrian and bicycle connectivity to existing development on Jefferson Boulevard, nearby schools, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit station and the Dallas Zoo.

Persons interested in attending the hearing who have special communication or accommodation needs, such as the need for an interpreter, are encouraged to contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480.
