Two & 1/2 miles of service roads will not help traffic on I20 and will create a bottleneck as traffice seeks to rejoin 20 at Cedar Ridge. This plan in none of its forms is good for the neighborhoods that will be impacted. Entry into the Frank Keasler addition from Cedar Ridge will be limited to Red Bird Lane, a street not designed for heavy traffic. Egress and ingress of other neighborhoods is also effected negatively. I urge city council members to dump this plan: If you wouldn't want it done to your neighborhood, don't plant it in ours. Listen to the people who will be impacted, not those who live on the other side of town.

Rumor has it that after the service roads are built, adjacent properties will be re-zoned commercial. The most common type of business to be located at the corner of an interstate is a gas station/convenience store. Such enterprises would lower the property values of one of the loveliest neighborhoods in D'ville. The area with hills and trees around Cedar Ridge Drive is the image that we want to represent Duncanville, an image that epitomizes the beauty of southern Dallas County and sets us apart from the former cotton fields of the northern suburbs. Let us encourage businesses to locate into the many empty buildings that are already there rather than destroy the beauty that we have. Council members: If you would not like to have a gas station on the corner by your house, do not open the way for one to be put in our neighborhood.

I think we should continue building. Duncanville is already a very very beautiful city and has the potential to be even more beautiful and successful if they keep building new and good looking buildings like the hilton garden hotel and those new buildings by main st. and U.S. Hwy 67
