History of Accidents in Euless

Unfortunately for the residents of Euless, accident rates have a distinctive split. And in the past three years, that's not a good thing.

In 2014 and 2015, accident rates were relatively steady at 774 accidents in 2014 and 772 accidents in 2015 respectively.

Then, from 2015 to 2016, shot up by almost 200 accidents for a total of 929 accidents in 2016. From there, the accident rate stayed constant. In 2017, the accident rate climbed slightly to 934 accidents. It dropped slightly in 2018 to 915 accidents, but not enough to be hugely significant.

What changed in Euless from 2015 to 2016?

Among other things, the city began the Midtown Express project.

This interim project, under the guidance of Southgate Constructors, took on $847 million to reconstruct and increase the capacity of Loop 12, from SH 183 to I-35E, SH 183, from SH 121 to I-35E, SH 114, and from SH 183 to International Parkway. As any Euless resident knows, these three roads cut straight through Euless and serve as main arteries for traffic to travel.

Construction began in April 2015, the same year that Euless saw a significant spike in traffic accidents. It concluded for good in October of 2018, which would explain why the accident rate went down slightly in 2018 but not by much.

Part of the problem was major bottlenecks around Euless as SH 121 shrinks from six lanes to four, resulting in gridlock for several miles (sometimes extending all the way to Grapevine). To help alleviate the issue, officials allowed drivers to use the shoulder during rush hour (weekday mornings and afternoons).

The issue here should be obvious--this practice is normally illegal, as it may not be safe to drive on the shoulder for an extended period. Drivers aren't used to looking for cars on the shoulder, and the shoulder may shrink (or disappear) with little warning.

And when you're traveling on the highway, that can quickly turn into a crash.

History of Fatalities in Euless

Interestingly, the rate of fatal accidents in Euless doesn't mirror the rate of overall accidents. In fact, the fatal accidents in the area were surprisingly low given the number of overall accidents.

The highest fatalities in Euless occurred in 2014 and 2016, with three accidents per year. But in between them, 2015 had just one fatal accident. And after them, 2017 and 2018 held steady at two fatal accidents apiece.

So despite the dramatic spike in overall accidents, the rate of fatalities was never all that high--and it experienced only a minor spike when compared with the overall rate of accidents.

It's possible that this trend can again be attributed to the Midtown Express project. Remember, fatal accidents were low in 2015, spiked a bit in 2016, and then held steady for 2017 and 2018. The project commenced in 2015 and finished in 2018.

Given the bottlenecks and lane closures happening during the project, it's possible that drivers were more careful during construction because they couldn't use the whole road.

It's also possible that the miles-long bottlenecks made it impossible for drivers to get up to the speeds they would normally reach during rush hour on the highway, making it more difficult to create fatal crash situations.

Either way, the residents of Euless can now hit the road with greater ease knowing that the project is finally over.
