Yes, there are long-term plans to add a left-turn on NB Dallas Parkway at Panther Creek. This lane would be built in conjunction with the construction of the u-turn lanes under the bridge. There is not a scheduled date for this work and funding has not yet been identified (because it is behind several other projects that have higher priority).
However, in the short term, we could change the lane assignment on the northbound approach to allow two lanes to turn left. Coincidentally, we have just conducted traffic volume counts at the intersection and will use those to analyze this potential capacity improvement.
