LBJ Freeway Construction Open House on April 21st

From Linda Koop – Dallas City Council Member, District 11

“Construction on the five-year LBJ Express Project is currently in progress.  The Project Team is anxious to provide the public with the most current information, therefore they will be hosting an open house on Thursday, April 21st from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m at the Sheraton North Dallas Hotel, 4801 LBJ Freeway, 75244.”

“This will be a casual come-and-go event with representatives from the LBJ Infrastructure Group LLC, , Trinity Infrastructures LLC, Texas Department of Transportation and several other transportation entities on hand to answer your questions and provide detailed information about the construction project.”


Impact of the LBJ project on the White Rock Creek Trail

Since the White Rock Creek Trail runs under LBJ Freeway, this construction project has the potential to impact trail access. According to the web site (www.lbjexpress.com) the right lane of the west bound access road around Park Central (where the trail crosses under LBJ) will be closed for part of the day from April 4th to May 4th. We checked to find out how this might affect trail access and got this response from Lara Kohl, Public Relations Manager for Trinity Infrastucture, LLC.

“Our construction team tells me that access to the White Rock Creek bike trail will not be impacted during the upcoming lane closures. These closures will be for utility relocation work.”

We’ll keep on top of this with the hope that LBJ Infrastructure Group will work to keep the trail open during this massive construction project.

  1. TxDOT has provided the Dallas Parks and Recreation Department with tree funds to mitigate the removal of trees along the 635 corridor necessary for this project. Immediately south of 635 the WRCT runs through Anderson-Bonner Park. This park will receive a significant number of trees as well as the irrigation maintain them.

  2. Any information on the long-term fate of the trail once LBJ construction is finished? Will contractors or Park & Rec. Dept. be responsible for rebuilding/rerouting the trail?

    Thanks
