Re: Deep Ellum: Epic ~ Knights of Pythias Temple

^^ I'd take a streetcar over D2. Being able to take a streetcar from East Dallas to Bishop Arts, stopping along the way in Deep Ellum, Downtown, etc, would be a dream.

Removing 345 would be tremendous, and hopefully Uber's arrival will speed this timeline up so the money which might go towards the current Carpenter Park can instead be used on a better park space that doesn't need to accommodate an ugly elevated highway.
