Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018
Open House: 6 -  7 p.m.
Formal Hearing: 7 p.m.


The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed SH 78 at Gaston Avenue intersection improvements in the city of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. Displays will be available for viewing at 6 p.m with the formal hearing starting at 7 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, to be a part of the official record.


The proposed project consists of reconfiguring the SH 78/Gaston Avenue intersection to improve traffic operations and mobility. The improvements would modify the intersection to include additional turning lanes, raised medians, adding bicycle and pedestrian accommodations within the project limits, and widening the existing bridges over an unnamed tributary to White Rock Creek. The proposed project would require approximately 0.29 acre of new right of way and 0.32 acre of temporary construction easements to accommodate the proposed improvements.
