North Dallas is an area of numerous communities and neighborhoods in Dallas, Texas (United States). The phrase "North Dallas" is also sometimes used to include any suburb or exurb north of Dallas proper within the metropolitan area. The majority of North Dallas is located in Dallas County, while a small portion is located in Collin and Denton Counties. North Dallas generally includes areas of Dallas north of Northwest Highway, along with Lake Highlands and areas of Dallas north of IH-635 known as Far North Dallas. The area has strong social and economic ties to the Dallas enclave of Park Cities, and two inner suburbs of Dallas, Richardson and Addison. It is the wealthiest part of Dallas, but has its adjacent, less resourced areas as well.

As Dallas has grown over the last several decades, the concept of "North Dallas" has changed from the area just north of downtown, along Central Expressway (where North Dallas High School is located), to the far northern reaches of Dallas proper and the suburbs to the north of the city.

Transportation North Central Expressway (US 75) in North Dallas

As the majority of North Dallas was developed in the late 20th century, the primary mode of local transportation is the automobile and the area has a low density compared with neighborhoods built in the early 20th century. Efforts made by the City of Dallas and Dallas Area Rapid Transit to increase the availability of alternative modes of transportation have received varying degrees of support from North Dallas residents. Since 1996, two light rail lines flanking North Dallas on the east have been constructed and well-received, and two more flank North Dallas on the west, in northwest Dallas. However, plans to build a commuter or light rail line through the North Dallas area along the "Cotton Belt" (the St. Louis Southwestern Railway) has met opposition from residents and local organizations.[17]

Major and minor thoroughfares in Dallas and its enclaves

North Dallas' road network was developed according to the street hierarchy school of urban design. Roads in the area are separated into major limited-access highways, high-capacity principal arterial roads, mid-capacity minor arterial roads, mid-capacity collector roads, and minor streets. The most organized of these systems is North Dallas' modified grid plan of principal arterial roads, which runs on a standard N/S/E/W grid.

Highways The Central Expressway and I-635 interchange in North Dallas, commonly known as the High Five Interchange.

The routing of limited-access highways through North Dallas is based on the area's proximity to Dallas' downtown freeway loop, as Dallas' freeway system was built according to the hub-and-spoke paradigm. North Dallas' major north-south highways radiate out of the downtown freeway loop and cut through North Dallas at various angles.

  • Interstate 35E runs northwest/southeast.
  • Dallas North Tollway runs north/south.
  • U.S. Highway 75 (Central Expressway) runs northeast/southwest.

Additionally, four separate beltways arc across North Dallas: in order from their proximity to downtown:

  • Northwest Highway (Loop 12)
  • Interstate 635
  • Belt Line Road
  • President George Bush Turnpike
Thoroughfares
  • Abrams Road
  • Arapaho Road
  • Audelia Road
  • Coit Road
  • Forest Lane

  • Greenville Avenue
  • Hillcrest Road
  • Inwood Road
  • Marsh Lane
