Dallas: The City That Hates Pedestrians, Pt. 2

The two words any downtown ambulator has learned to fear: Sidewalk Closed.

This is near the intersection of Harwood and Ross downtown, where the Trammel Crow Center is renovating and, across the street, building a hotel, apartments, and assorted amenities. Workers were kind enough to build a scaffolding-and-plywood passage over the sidewalk, something lacking in last week’s edition of “Dallas: The City That Hates Pedestrians.” Puzzlingly, there is a “sidewalk closed” sign, as well as red caution tape suggesting that pedestrians should not make use of said tunnel. Progress?

    The real story here is the misdirection on what’s actually being built. It’s a big parking garage with some retail at ground level (maybe a Royal Blue Market?). There’s no hotel or apartments under construction.
