The fastest way to Westheimer Rd., if you happen to be wandering north looking for it in the 76210 ZIP code, is a left off of Heights Blvd. and an immediate right off Gessner Dr. Lauren Meyers captured some scenes this weekend around the Summit Oaks subdivision on the south side of Denton, TX, which has a whole section of streets sharing names with major Houston roadway (with a few bizarro-world tweaks here and there, like Chimney Rock Dr. and an only-1-L Hilcroft Ave.) The imposters range from Briar Forest Dr. to Dunlavy St. to Willowick Cir. and beyond:
An older subdivision section immediately west across Teasley Ln. (the major road leading to the Summit Oaks subdivision’s entrances) also has a Hunters Creek Rd. (which crosses a manmade drainage feature likely assumed by non-Houstonians to be the eponymous Hunters Creek). Meanwhile, just east of the subdivison, the tangle of roads surrounding the Denton State Supported Living Center campus has both a north and south Houston St., sprinkled among nods to other Texas Revolutionary types.
