Does or Should East Dallas Use 345?


After looking into South Dallas commuting patterns yesterday I wondered, "maybe East Dallas (and points further east for a big catchment area) might need to take 30 east to 345 then 75 to get to jobs up and down 75?"

So I drew a big ol' study boundary from the Grand/Garland road SW/NE axial to include Rowlett, Rockwall, and Sunnyvale down to 30.  Turns out only 1 of the top 50 job destinations for this area is on 75 between downtown and 635 and it's on loop 12 which is practically a highway itself east of 75.
