The City of Dallas is looking for resident input on a draft of its strategic mobility plan, which includes plans for street improvements and traffic calming measures in our neighborhood.

The city is developing its first ever strategic mobility plan called Connect Dallas. It is a product of city leadership, the Dallas Department of Transportation, residents and stakeholders coming together to develop a comprehensive mobility strategy.

The featured project for Northeast Dallas called Gaston Avenue Traffic Calming would implement traffic calming and complete street improvements between downtown and Garland Road. This would include updated lighting, sidewalk improvements and speed management.

Check out page 51 of the draft to see what specific improvements would be made in the neighborhood.

The draft is available for public review, said Mayor Pro Tem Adam McGough in a Facebook post.

“Your feedback is critical to make sure we meet the needs of everyone who lives, plays, and works in Dallas,” McGough said in the post.

Comment on the draft can be done through this four-question form. The period for public comment closes Feb. 5.
