If you travel on I-30 into downtown, you can't miss the construction going on.  Known as the "Horseshoe Project", this effort is being managed by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and is scheduled to be completed in 2017. 

About the Area

Oak Cliff is a neighborhood of Dallas south of downtown.  Oak trees and the bluffs overlooking the Trinity River gave Oak Cliff its name.  It's best known for rolling hills, mature trees, spectacular views of downtown, and historic and culturally diverse neighborhoods such as Winnetka Heights and Kessler Park.
