Klyde Warren Park

Plans for a $135 million deck park over Interstate 35 in Oak Cliff are moving forward.

The Texas Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing on the proposed park on April 25.

City Council last year approved a resolution to endorse the park and explore funding options for it.

The park would span 35 between Ewing and Zang, creating a 5.5-acre park as well as a pedestrian/bike connection between central Oak Cliff and the Dallas Zoo.

The Regional Transportation Council has offered to pitch in $45 million for the project, bringing Dallas’ portion to $95 million. That’s a long shot considering Dallas could be looking at bankruptcy in the near future.

Potential construction contractors are expected to offer options at the meeting next month, which could include lower-cost proposals.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, in the cafeteria of Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center.
