Welcome to the Gus Thomasson Corridor - GTC for short.
Gus Thomasson (GT) Rd enters Mesquite in the Northwest area by La Prada Event Center and Country Club Estates. It travels Southeast (parallel to I-635 and N Galloway Ave East off I-635) crossing I-30 and ends at I-80.
The North portion of GTC is located in a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) and new housing development is taking place. A $3 billion road infrastructure improvement project was recently completed and the Thomasson Square Project is estimated to have a cumulative economic impact of $558 million.
For information on the TXDOT 635 work happening at I-30, please visit 635east.com.
