Head to the Arboretum tonight to learn about the future of Gaston-Garland-Grand

After the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) canceled an October meeting to help decide the fate of Gaston-Garland-Grand, the new meeting is set for tonight.

The rescheduled community meeting will take place in Rosine Hall at the Dallas Arboretum from 6-8 p.m. Representatives from TxDOT and project consultants will answer questions about the project, but there will not be a formal presentation. TxDOT hopes to receive public comments about the map, design and construction schedules.

There are several options for the intersection, ranging from a traffic circle to the more traditional “Reverse-T” formation, which is currently the preferred plan, though nothing is finalized. Pedestrian and bicycle improvements are part of the new plans as well.

Complicating the decision-making process, the area includes city- and state-owned roads. In addition, districts for State Reps. Victoria Neave and Eric Johnson and City Councilmen Mark Clayton, Philip Kingston and Adam Medrano all intersect at G-G-G.
