Option 1 – Yes! Option 2 – No!
The Current Garland/Grand/Gaston (3G) Intersection
- According to Advocate Magazine, Gaston Avenue is the most dangerous street in East Dallas: 131 accidents & 1 fatality in 2017.
- Gaston Avenue is already over-capacity. It was designed to carry 14,000 cars per day but carries 18,600 cars.
- Texas Department of Transportation (TxDot) projects that Option #2 will bring 29,200 more cars in less than 20 years onto Gaston Avenue – a 40% increase.
- Option 2 threatens to re-distribute the traffic pattern from Garland and Grand more heavily onto residential streets.
