Lake Highlands Gets a Signature Bridge

Advocate Lake Highlands has the story: "That bowl of spaghetti that is the Skillman/Audelia/LBJ interchange will become a beautiful — and safe — gateway into Lake Highlands."

Advocate Lake Highlands gushes that the intersection will be "beautiful — and safe". Dallas City Council member Adam McGough praises the "signature bridge" and the "sound walls." No one mentions the "undesirable businesses" or "problematic" apartments that were such a concern five years ago when The Wheel last wrote about this.

And no one, then or now, seems to have noticed the DART station right at that intersection and how a redeveloped intersection might have tied that into a whole community there, a walkable, mixed-use, transit-oriented community. Like I feared all along, it was only ever all about the cars.
