On April 27, 2015, the Town of Highland Park, in partnership with SMU, began an intersection improvement project for the roadway, sidewalk, and signal lights at Mockingbird Lane and Airline Road.

The construction project is expected to be completed by August 1, 2015. It will require lane adjustments for east and west bound traffic in the designated work zone near the intersection, as well as the closure of Airline Road and Bush Avenue for the entirety of the project.

During the project, one lane east bound and one lane west bound on Mockingbird Lane will be closed to allow for roadway construction in the intersection. Signs and traffic markers will identify the lane adjustments around the work zone. It is recommended that motorists use alternate travel routes to avoid traffic congestion in the area.

Pedestrians who normally cross Mockingbird Lane at Airline Road are advised to use the crosswalk at Mockingbird Lane and Abbott Avenue.

The Town’s website will contain updates on the progress of the project on the homepage under, “Town News.” In addition to project updates, a copy of the detour map will be available for view or download. A copy of the detour map is included with this release as a separate attachment.

For questions or concerns, please contact the Town of Highland Park at 214-521-4161.
