(pre-project photo)

Crews have begun a month-long project to upgrade irrigation and landscaping on the median along the Dallas North Tollway Wall from Lovers Lane north to Greenbrier Drive.  Work will include removal of existing plant material, irrigation modifications, and the installation of new plant material. 

Traffic Detour – Hours of Work

To ease traffic congestion, work will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday only.  Throughout the project, northbound traffic on Lomo Alto will be unimpeded.  Southbound traffic will detour to Southwestern and proceed through the neighborhood on Douglas.  Traffic control signs will remain in place to guide motorists.  Weather permitting, the project will be completed by July 2.
