As the 2017 bond project list take shape, District 14 in East Dallas is proposed to receive almost $90 million, with over $33 million for street repairs. In a Facebook post, District 14 councilman Philip Kingston wrote, “What these mobility projects mean is that you will see a real, substantial improvement in the condition of the streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, and alleys that you use every day.” He also noted that the projects won’t include projects that span multiple jurisdictions, such as the 3G intersection, which receives funding from the state.

Kingston goes on, “And if you don’t see the project you care about funded here, don’t lose hope. I am also still securing grant funds from the feds and the state.”

See all the street repairs planned in each council district here (District 9 streets are still finalizing, but will be added to the link when they are done.)

    I don’t think $33 will make much of a dent in our needed street repairs. That’s about four cans of lane-striping paint, the cheap kind.

    Quick check indicates the cost is about $200/LF for a typical 2-lane neighborhood street (resurfacing only).

    That’s expensive.
