Northwest Corridor:

Beginning Monday, March 26, a portion of Lucas Drive between Harry Hines Blvd. and Production Drive will be closed. This closure will last approximately three months to accommodate construction of a future DART Rail bridge. As part of this project, various lanes on Harry Hines may be closed briefly as well.

Motorists wishing to access Medrano Elementary School and other points on Lucas from the west will be directed to Kendall Drive and Production Drive (Please see map in a new window.)


Portions of Denton Drive between Egan Avenue and Hawes Avenue are closed due to relocation of Dallas Water Utilities lines in preparation for DART Light Rail expansion in the area. View more information and a street closure map.
Note: Love Field Auto, 6420 Denton Drive, will be open during this work. (www.lovefieldauto.com)

Southeast Corridor:

First Ave. at Parry is one way until Spring 2007. First Ave. east of Parry will normally flow as one way east (into Fair Park). Traffic will be on the south side of the street for the next three or four months and then will switch to the north side (on the new pavement). It is anticipated that the final configuration of the intersection will be open in approximately 10 months.

During events the traffic flow may be switched to flow west (out of Fair Park). That will be determined on an event by event basis and will be controlled by the Dallas Police Department.
