About West Dallas

West Dallas is a section of the city that extends roughly from the winding Trinity River basin on the north and east to Loop 12 on the west and Interstate 30 to the south. It is an area of generally smaller, older homes interspersed with industrial and commercial development, newer retail, entertainment districts, and local businesses, especially just across the river from downtown Dallas. The stunning Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is a landmark on the horizon, and its completion in 2014, adjacent to the old Continental Bridge, marked a new era in West Dallas history and brought new life and pride to an area with a proud past and a promising future.
