Dallas County, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the City of Wilmer celebrated the groundbreaking of the $12.6 million Pleasant Run Overpass this morning. The project is the second phase of a commitment that includes the recently constructed Wintergreen Overpass just to the north and will be virtually identical. Both projects represent critical links to the Inland Port, providing safer crossings at Millers Ferry and the railroad for the traveling public.
Officials at the event expressed great pride in the incredible teamwork, leadership and vision this took to get done, emphasizing that leadership on the part of Commissioner Price. Price thanked partners, the City of Wilmer and Michael Morris, Director of Transportation at the North Texas Council of Governments (NTCOG) for “always being mindful of Southern Dallas when it comes to development…”
The new bridge over Union Pacific tracks and Millers Ferry Road will enable continuous traffic flow from Interstate 45 to areas west of Millers Ferry Road in the City of Wilmer and into Hutchins and Lancaster. This major project transforms Pleasant Run Road which currently consists of a two-lane asphalt road with a railroad crossing and no sidewalks. When completed next summer, it will feature sidewalks and a four-lane continuous concrete overpass that will take vehicles and pedestrians over both Millers Ferry Road and a multiple set of busy railroad tracks without interruption.
