The city has finally devised a solution for the car-clogged intersection at Keller Springs and Preston: A roundabout.
Far North Dallas hasn’t seen this type of street design since the 1960s – back when our area was made up of blacktop, country roads. It seems an old-fashioned idea might be just the thing to relieve traffic congestion in this modern age.
For younger folks and those who have never been to the U.K., a roundabout is a circular intersection that directs traffic in one direction around a central island. Ours will be installed on Keller Springs just before it heads underneath Preston.
Project will cost $306,100, and the funding is included in the proposed 2012 bond program. See what else North Dallas is getting in the package.
