The Dallas Streetcar construction project has created challenges for some businesses in and near the Bishop Arts District, but Paul Delgado, co-owner of The Local Oak restaurant, isn’t complaining.
“Once the streetcar gets rolling, we fully anticipate that it will bring more people into the area, so plans are already underway to expand our kitchen, rework our menu and hire more people to accommodate the expected increase in sales,” Delgado said.
The 0.75-mile extension project includes the addition of two stops along Zang Boulevard – one at Sixth Street and the other at Davis Boulevard, which is the Bishop Arts District stop.
DART will host a Community Meeting July 28 to help introduce and educate North Oak Cliff residents and visitors about the new Dallas Streetcar southern extension to Bishop Arts. Among other things, participants will hear construction updates, learn about D-Link bus service changes and the new Bishop Arts Shuttle bus.
The Dallas Streetcar extension project is expected to be completed by late August. The streetcar is owned by the city of Dallas, and maintained and operated by DART.
