for 2 years... (?!?!?!?)
I haven't verified this... saw it on another board...
TXDoT closing Lawther @ NW Highway for 2 years
Middle of July the boneheads are closing Lawther at NW Highway till the summer of 2012. This will kill access to White Rock Lake from the north unless one goes over Flag Pole Hill then across NW Highway at Buckner. TXDoT is completely unresponsive thus far. Originally they were supposed to leave access to the bike path crossing at Lawther but changed the plans at the last minute catching everyone off guard.
If you live in the Dallas area and use the lake, please contact Angela Hunt, Sheffie Kadane or Tom Leppert and let your voice be heard. TXDoT is blind to the fact that people, hundreds a day and thousands on the weekend use that crossing as part of the 17 mile trail.
