Deep Ellum said the rideshare flow zones will return this weekend and remain in place from Thursday to Saturday night.
DALLAS – Deep Ellum is gearing up for the summer crowd, and that means returning “flow zones” to Uber, Lyft and other rideshare pickups.
Earlier this month, Deep Ellum announced that flow zones will return this weekend and will be in place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
These designated raydshare zones have been in operation for several years until 2019.
- Shopping Street: Near Pryor Street and Malcolm X Boulevard
- Malcolm X Boulevard: Between Garagaj Street and July Alley
- Swiss Avenue: Between North Hawkins Street and North Good Latimer Expressway
- Floyd Street: Between North Good Latimer Expressway and Cantegral Street
- North Good Latimer Express Road: Between Commercial and Main Streets
Security guards will be deployed in each zone to ensure safe traffic. The zones are designed to help improve traffic flow and congestion in busy entertainment areas at night with high traffic.
Deep Ellum also encourages visitors to use the two main parking lots and the park, which make up more than 1,000 connected venues and charge $ 2 per hour.
The neighborhood, which has more than 100 bars and restaurants, including more than 30 live music venues, has stepped up security and crowd management efforts in recent months.
Two people were injured in a shooting on Garaagaj Street in April. After the incident, police began to temporarily close parts of some roads, including Main Street and Elm Street, for traffic.
According to the Dallas Police Department and the Deep Ellum Foundation, the parcels were intended to increase pedestrian safety.
