21 - Lovers Lane StationLovers Lane Station Fence

Taking a sentimental journey

Although Lovers Lane now is surrounded by retail development and apartments and crosses a bustling expressway, it once was aptly named. In the not-too-distant past, it was a country lane outside the city limits where young couples indeed went courting, sheltered by fences made of bois d'arc wood that grew back into trees.

Lovers Lane Station WindscreenThe station celebrates that past with a light-hearted, romantic motif. Poet Robert Trammell contributed verses, prose poems and snippets of phrases that bring to life several layers of Dallas history, in which Native Americans, turn-of-the-century blues musicians and 1950s sweethearts all appear, interwoven with the design touches of artist Jim Branstetter. The manhole cover on the southbound platform is an easy-to-overlook touch of whimsy a query that attempts to answer the age-old question, "She loves me, she loves me not."

Design Artist: Pamela Nelson
