 Representatives from TXDOT addressed the Oak Cliff Chamber Wednesday November 12 and updated the crowd on plans to demolish the Jefferson Boulevard Viaduct and replace it with a 4-story, 6 lane connector feeder from I-35 South to downtown and the unfunded and controversial Trinity Tollroad.  

Four-story, six-lane flyovers would cross Colorado and cut off Burnett Field from Oak Cliff and drastically alter sight lines of the iconic downtown skyline from the south. Four alternatives are being worked on with one cutting to the east towards the Cedars. All these alternatives will go to Council and then on to the public for input in the spring.  The project would cost an estimated 80 million dollars and is currently unfunded like the tollroad.

Completed in 1973 at a cost of 7 million dollars, the Jefferson Bridge never quite accomplished what city leaders envisioned at the time it was built. From a November 23, 1975 DMN article. “When the county built the bridge, which was financed from money voters approved in 1969, it was touted as being the first bridge constructed by a local governmental agency that conformed to Trinity Canal Navigation standards.”
