DALLAS — The City of Dallas announced that two areas in North and South Dallas will receive spray treatments after mosquitos tested positive for West Nile Virus.

According to the city, the area that will be sprayed in North Dallas is bordered by LBJ Freeway, Marbrook Drive, Park Central Drive and Forest Lane. 

In South Dallas, the area being sprayed is bordered by S. Malcom X Boulevard, Coombs Street, Dathe street and Cleveland Street. 

Both areas will be sprayed between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Tuesday, June 11 and Wednesday, June 12.
