What's old is new again in the charming lakeside community of Lake Dallas, just north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. A new bridge linking Lake Dallas' Swisher Road and Eldorado Parkway allows motorists to get from I-35 East to the Dallas North Tollway. In the 1920s, a bridge over Lewisville Lake once provided a vital transportation link between Lake Dallas and Little Elm. That bridge was removed in the 1950s to make way for the expansion of the lake. Much of the land leading up to the Lake Dallas side of the bridge has prime development potential for retail and commercial venture and will be just minutes from I-35 East. A 6-lane thoroughfare will handle the traffic from I-35 East to the bridge. The bridge has once again provided a vital transportation link between Lake Dallas and Little Elm. The ability to span the waters of Lewisville Lake along with a revitalizing downtown is bringing attention from developers, business owners and residents alike. With miles of fresh water to enjoy for picnicking, fishing, camping, and boating and it doesn't get much better than on a hot summer day spending time at one of the Texas lakes.
