District 1


Project Updates

​There are several ongoing City projects of interest to District 1 residents.  First,  there is the reconstruction of Sylvan Avenue, north of I-30.  This project is located in adjacent Council District 6, but affects a vital route in and out of north Oak Cliff.

The Tyler-Polk Two-way Conversion project will change those streets from one-way to two-way and will include updates to traffic signals  from Davis St to Twelfth St.

The West Davis project will partially reconstruct the street while improving pedestrian features between North Clinton Ave and Cedar Hill Ave.

Finally, Fort Worth Avenue from Sylvan Ave to W Commerce St will include pedestrian improvements, the addition of bike lanes and partial reconstruction of the street.

Below  is information about the status of each project, as well as links to select project plans. The status information will be updated on this page each week.
