Dallas leaders continue Trinity toll road discussions

Posted: Updated:

The fate of a Dallas freeway is being tied to a planned toll road along the Trinity River.

There are actually four different routes under consideration for the $1.5 billion dollar Trinity Parkway Project.

It is expected to run the nine miles from Interstate 45 to where Interstate 35E and Highway 175 merge together. A lot of people know the area as Dead Man's Curve.

The road could have six lanes and flood separation walls.

There have been talks about tearing down Interstate 354 -- the elevated portion of Highway 75 between Woodall Rogers and Interstate 45/30 -- because it does separate Deep Ellum from Downtown Dallas.

Those who support that plan want the toll road because they want to make sure another road will be available for residents to get to and from downtown.

A 73-page report detailing the potential impact the project will have on the area will be discussed at City Hall Monday afternoon.

A public hearing is scheduled for next Thursday at the Dallas Convention Center.
