The Texas Department of Transportation has awarded a contract to build a park on top of a below-grade connector roadway in downtown Dallas. Project financing includes $20 million from the city’s $1.2 billion general obligation bond program approved by voters in 2006.

Work on the $44.5 million contract from TxDOT will begin with an official ceremony on Friday, with completion scheduled for mid-2011. The park will include a children’s garden, pavilion and promenade.
