The Dallas City Council agreed to give AT&T the infrastructure it wants around the telecom giant’s headquarters at Akard and Commerce Streets in downtown Dallas. AT&T announced in October 2016 that it would invest $100 million on upgrades to its downtown campus. The infrastructure reconfiguration is necessary for its “Discovery District,” a mixed-use project offering retail, restaurants and other amenities.

The reconfigurations will include:

  • Reduction of four eastbound lanes on Commerce Street to three from Houston Street to Cesar Chavez Boulevard
  • Closing of Akard Street between Jackson and Wood Streets
  • Converting Akard from a three-lane, one-way street into a two-lane, two-way between Wood and Young Streets
  • Converting Wood from a three-lane, one-way street to a two-lane, two-way street from Griffin Street to Pearl Expressway

The year-long discussions concerning the street re-do involved AT&T, City Hall, Downtown Dallas Inc., Dallas Area Rapid Transit and downtown businesses, residents and property owners.
