Won't you have to cross two frontage roads and a loud underpass to reach the transit for this TOD?

McKinney and Broom streets aren't really "frontage roads" at that point (Frontage road to me implies a mix of traffic entering/exiting the freeway at 45+ mph), just 25 mph city streets with stoplights and intersections that happen to be next to a freeway. Usually those roads are pretty quiet, and perfectly safe to cross on foot. Once there's a DART crossing to periodically stop car traffic in either direction, there's no reason to think 99% of people couldn't traverse the ~150-ish feet from the development to the Museum way station.
