Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Richardson TX Woods of SpringCreek TurnAbout

Richardson TX Woods of SpringCreek TurnAbout

My community, Woods of SpringCreek in Richardson, TX finally received the turnabout they've been talking about for years.  Telecom was a dead-end street, but it was never finished off because the plans were to make it a through street. 

With enough support from the homeowners, we convinced the City of Richardson to not allow it to be a through street and to keep the traffic away from our small, quiet community.  They then agreed to connect two different streets in order to make traffic flow from Plano into Richardson, Los Rios and North Star.

Here is a view from above showing how Telecom stopped at some trees, and how North Star made a pretty sharp turn west in order to connect to Los Rios.

Now, we have a turnabout at the end of the street and much needed landscaping has been put in place so it's nice and pretty to look at when you're at the community park or just walking your dogs or kids around the neighborhood.  We also know that we will remain a quiet area without any through traffic coming by at all hours of the days and nights.  This was all made possibly with some bond money, and some funds from our friendly neighborhood who own the private property across the street from our community.


This is how the street used to end, with just some ugly baracades...




This is what the landscaping now looks like.


Remember, I work all of North Dallas County and Collin County including Richardson, Plano, Allen, Frisco, Carrollton, Garland, Rowlett, McKinney, etc... my car will take us anywhere you need to go!!

Donna:  What a great example you have shared with us.  This is what happens when the neighborhood, the city and others get involved in all pulling together to improve and beautify the communities in which we live.  It looks just great... and sharing it on Localism is a great way to show your neighbors that you are their "neighborhood expert."  Great Job !
