Tyler one way

Remember the plan to turn Tyler and Polk to two-way streets? That effort is moving forward and preliminary plans could be available as soon as November.

The City of Dallas hired Hayden Consultants Inc. to study the feasibility of creating roundabouts instead of stoplights just north of Davis and south of Twelfth.

Once the study is completed the city will have drawings and more refined cost estimates, says Tim Starr of the Public Works and Transportation Department. Meetings to gather neighbors’ input on the plan could start in late October or early November.

Roundabouts would be a little cheaper than stoplights. They would calm traffic and distribute cars among Tyler and Polk, “and they serve as gateways coming into the neighborhood,” Starr says.
