Then a little west on Royal, homeowners say the mess that is LBJ has the traffic taking over Royal Lane. In fact, coming home last night, I saw FOUR DPD cars on the eastbound side parked, talking to one tall man AFTER I passed a car wreck. It was like 8:30 p.m. Neighbors say the speeding is atrocious and the semi’s are squealing down the street at all hours. Neighbors suspect drivers are dodging construction and traffic on LBJ Freeway and cutting through their neighborhood, which runs parallel to the freeway and a couple of miles south. You’d wonder why they wouldn’t take Forest Lane, which is one major thoroughfare north, but I guess Forest has more traffic than Royal. Do be careful on Royal and keep your speed down when wet: in 2002, two precious St. Marks boys lost their lives on that elevated curve just east of Hillcrest.
And if anyone wants to vent about LBJ madness or what a pain it is to use the north entrance at DFW now, go for it right here. I’m waiting for some enterprising young soul to start a helicopter-to-DFW biz to tide us over until construction is complete.
