In Topic: The Image of Fort Worth

Yesterday, 10:40 PM

ESPN briefly showed the Fort Worth skyline during a race at TMS several years ago.

 

Well that's a shock. ESPN is notorious for showing and saying "Dallas" when they're really here.

From last night TCU game, I saw something that I've never seen during a broadcast before...

In Topic: Amazon in search of 2nd headquarters

Looks rather bland. I have seen other Dallas HQ2 renderings that looks much better. But as yet not seen any from Fort Worth ?


Well those aren't the final designs. The tallest tower would become the new tallest in Dallas, so there could be some additions.

"Pappa Changs moved to 2817 W. Berry St., where it now shares space with I-Pho."

That's a little surprising... 


In Topic: Tearing Out Freeways: A Third Option

17 October 2017 - 08:18 PM

The name or the freeway itself?

 

This thread has offered some pretty spirited discussion over the years.  A few things have changed since the last post more than 3 years ago: the horseshoe interchange rebuild is nearing completion, the toll road on the Trinity that the city said for years had to be complete in order for the horseshoe project to happen never happened and is deader than dead and the area bordering the Trinity to the west of downtown is booming with development, LBJ on the north side was rebuilt, and 183 from Stemmons into Irving is being rebuilt.  I'm not sure the discussion and study would even be taking place if the overhead wasn't in such poor structural shape or if money was readily available to replace it.  The comment following the NBC5 story from the guy saying he likes the freeway because it isolates Deep Ellum and Old East Dallas from Downtown is...interesting. 

 

I'm interested in seeing what the study shows about traffic flow.  This definitely isn't something that will happen overnight.

 

The name. 

I've never in my life seen or heard of that section of freeway be called "I-345".
