The city is conducting a virtual public meeting Tuesday, June 29, at 6 p.m. to solicit input for Gaston Avenue improvements to help manage vehicle speeding, improve bus routes and boost pedestrian and bike safety — from Garland Road/East Grand to Baylor Scott & White Hospital near Downtown.

“The project began after area neighborhoods and residents made a formal request for a Complete Streets Study on Gaston following the 3G intersection re-design project,“ says Melanie Vanlandingham of the Lakewood Heights Neighborhood Association.
“In late 2019, the Dallas Department of Transportation formed a stakeholder steering committee of residents from several neighborhoods along the Gaston corridor (from the 3G intersection to Baylor Scott & White Hospital) to begin discussing issues and needs,” Vanlandingham says. “An engineering consultant has been hired recently to begin on preliminary plans with public input.”
After the meeting June 29, the presentation will be made available online through the public comment period deadline of July 13.
