District 1


Project Updates

​There are several ongoing City projects of interest to District 1 residents.  First,  work is under way on Jefferson Boulevard between Zang Boulevard and Adams Avenue to improve crosswalks, lighting and landscaping.

Additionally, there is the reconstruction of Sylvan Avenue, north of I-30, and the reconfiguration of the Beckley Avenue/Commerce St intersection.  Both of these projects are located in adjacent Council District 6 but they are vital routes in and out of north Oak Cliff.

Finally, 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.

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