Facts About the Current 3G Intersection

The Garland/Grand/Gaston Intersection

  • According to Advocate Magazine, Gaston Avenue is the most dangerous street in East Dallas: 131 accidents & 1 fatality in 2017.

  • TxDOT's Data Table 1 submitted on January 2018 shows a current 50/50 split between Grand/Gaston traffic flow.

  • 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.
