#98750 Alexan Summit Apartments (ACH campus)

Posted by RogerWilco on 18 September 2016 - 08:42 PM


... 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.

Check out the drone shots of the mosaic frieze along the top of Will Rogers. Any other ideas/locations that this could work for?

If you've ever been walking or biking in Trinity Park or Botanic Gardens and wanted to go from one to the other without driving or trying to cross University then this is might be a good solution.
