Central Expressway De-Greened


Crews have begun removing shrubbery in the medians due to cost of maintenance. Kinda sad.

When I worked in Dallas in the late 1980s, I routinely drove up and down Central. Back then it was two lanes each way with entrance ramps about as long as a typical driveway. It's amazing now.

And, do you remember those "traffic lights" at the beginning of each entrance ramp to tell you when to floor it to get on? Did anyone pay attention to those? Things have changed for the better - except for the de-greening part.

YAY!! It's about time! I hate when my view of concrete gets all gunked up by flowers and foliage.
