... What we'll have is a pretty good residential mid-rise that will have to join us in the daily challenge of negotiating a Summit/I-30/8th Ave. interchange that has to rank among the most poorly conceived and executed transporation facilities in North Texas...


The folks who decided to cram two exits/entrances (Summit/8th and Forest Park) thru one stoplight should really be taken to task. Of course I'm guessing it's the same folks who approved rebuilding I-35W with the same 2/3/2 lane bottlenecks to drive demand into those toll lanes.


The Engineering Firm was Parsons Brinckehoff that created the mess there and also the horrible looking section of freeway at i30 and Horne St.. Parsons Brinckerhoff is responsible for the "Big Dig" in Boston and also the HUGE mess in Seattle with the Alaska Way Viaduct.

I agree, It would be good to add pavement in the middle and leave planters/soil along the sides. Kind of like Klyde Warren Park in Dallas only much smaller.
