The Dallas Department of Transportation (DDOT) has initiated a multimodal operational study for Gaston Avenue from just west of the intersection of Garland/Gaston/East Grand/Garland Road intersection (3G) to the intersection of Washington Avenue. The study will evaluate the existing conditions of the Gaston Avenue corridor and will provide recommendations for traffic calming and pedestrian facility improvements.
In November 2019, Dallas Department of Transportation convened a stakeholder steering committee to guide the Gaston Avenue Corridor Study by providing insight on local issues and challenges and offer feedback at project milestones. The committee also played an important role in distributing information to the community. The group is designed to incorporate a range of perspectives and is comprised of council appointed neighborhood and community representatives that represent a variety of interests, backgrounds, and areas along the corridor. Members and their respective council districts can be found
There have been two phases of public engagement to date. Phase 1 focused on existing conditions, needs, issues, and opportunities along the corridor, and offered two opportunities for public input: a public survey and interactive map launched in spring 2021 and a virtual public meeting and comment period in summer 2021. Phase 2 focused on recommended improvements and offered two opportunities for public input: an online survey and an in-person public meeting held on July 19, 2022. Public engagement materials and summaries for each of these phases are provide below.

The third and final phase of the study is to develop an implementation plan of prioritized improvements and draft the final document. The public will have a final opportunity to provide input on the draft document once it is published for public review.
DDOT strives for significant and ongoing public involvement. Therefore, multiple opportunities will be provided to voice your concerns, ideas, and opinions throughout the study. All comments received will be documented and reviewed by the project team and will be considered before final decisions are made.
