Re-Striping lanes along Cockrell Hill Rd.

On, 12 July 2019, the City of Duncanville will re-stripe the lanes along Cockrell Hill Rd (by Papadeaux’s) in order to alleviate congestion at the intersection of US-67 Eastbound Service Rd and Northbound Cockrell Hill Road.  The lane markings will extend the length of the right-turn lane to allow additional cars to turn right onto the Service Rd and subsequently access US-67.  This work should take only one day.

The City’s contractor will also re-stripe the road markings at the intersection of Avenue of the Stars and Cockrell Hill Rd at the same time.

For more information, please contact the City’s Traffic Operations Superintendent, John Borchardt, at 972-780-5059.

 

Traffic Signal Box Art Unveiling Event

The City of Duncanville held its first Traffic Signal Box (TSB) Art Unveiling Event on Friday,  June 28, 2019, located in Downtown Duncanville. Mr. Jose Perales’ patriotic themed artwork was selected for the TSB located next to the war memorial on the corner of Center Street and Santa Fe Trail. Mr. Perales, his family, City Council Members, City Staff, and friends of the community were present to celebrate this exciting unveiling.

In 2017, the City of Duncanville adopted its first Comprehensive Plan.  Throughout the development of the plan, citizens requested to have more culture and public art throughout the Duncanville community to help enhance the City’s identity and character. During City Council’s 2018 Strategic Planning Session, the City Council approved the Traffic Signal Box Art Program. The initial call was for Duncanville artists participation, but then later was extended to include non-residents as well.  This art initiative is a public-private partnership with the City of Duncanville and the Duncanville Design Studio committee. Three additional art unveilings will take place over the next few weeks and the final one will take place when school starts; as the artist is a Duncanville student.

For more information about the Traffic Signal Box Art Program, call Parks Superintendent Timothy Hamilton at 972-780-5072.

Duncanville Red Light Cameras

The City of Duncanville’s Red Light Camera program terminated when Governor Greg Abbott signed HB 1631 into law this legislative session, which prohibits the operation of Red Light Cameras in Texas. The City of Duncanville has eight (8) cameras, and although the physical Red Light Cameras are temporarily still in place, they are not active and no violations will be issued after May 31, 2019. The camera infrastructure will be removed by the company that performed the installation.

Red light citations do not appear on driving records, only citations issued by a peace officer.  The legislation does not address citations received prior to HB 1631, nor does it instruct the City to refund fines paid before the ban.  The City does not anticipate refunds for violations issued prior to HB 1631 being signed into law.

For more information, please contact the Duncanville Police Department at 972-780-5024.
