A crowded stretch of Mockingbird Lane will become even more congested starting on Monday.
That’s when Highland Park and SMU will start a joint project to improve the intersection of Mockingbird and Airline Road, including the street, sidewalks, and signal lights. The construction will be done in three phases, and will last until about Aug. 1.
But here’s the bad part: Mockingbird will be reduced to one lane in both directions between North Central Expressway and Abbott Avenue. So the town, and common sense, are advising that you take alternate routes.
