Subsequent to the approval of a design contract for the Danieldale Road Street and Subsurface Utilities Reconstruction from South Main Street to U.S. Highway 67, City Council requested Public Works staff perform a corridor study along Danieldale Road to identify the potential for bike and pedestrian facilities.
City consultant Dunaway Associates presented their recommendations for the Danieldale Road Corridor Study during a City Council workshop held in September 2019:
Final end-state along Danieldale Road Corridor – This is what would be designed/constructed between Main Street and U.S. Highway 67 with future corridor reconstruction work along the corridor to also reflect this design:
- 4 lanes (two each direction)
- 12-foot shared used path in north parkway
- 8-foot sidewalk in south parkway
Interim measure along Danieldale Road – This is what would be installed along the balance of Danieldale Road to tie into the bike lanes along Mountain Creek Parkway in Dallas, to the reconstructed section of Danieldale Road between Main Street and U.S. Highway 67 and the planned four-lane road (with bike lanes) in Desoto:
- convert outside vehicular lane to a 5-foot bike lane with 6-foot buffer
- 4 lanes (two each direction) would remain for vehicular traffic
- 5-foot sidewalks along north and south parkway
On November 5, 2019, City Council approved the Danieldale Road Corridor Study recommendations to convert Danieldale Road to four vehicular lanes with supporting bike and pedestrian facilities as shown in the above conceptual design.
The final design is scheduled to be complete in June 2020. For more information regarding the Danieldale Road bond project, please contact the Public Works Department at 972-780-5015.
