Learn about transportation in the region and help set future priorities during a public meeting at 6 p.m. Nov. 13 at the North Central Texas Council of Government (NCTCOG) offices, 616 Six Flags Drive in Arlington.
The Regional Transportation Council and NCTCOG, together serving as the metropolitan planning organization for the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1974, are seeking public input. These are the presentations:
Strategic partnerships. The Strategic Partnerships Round 3 Program is intended to award federal mobility and air quality funding to projects that leverage funds from local partners, make needed intersection improvements or have been submitted by cities that have qualified for federal toll credits. Projects have been evaluated based on their technical merits, and a staff recommendation is proposed for review and comment. Details on the program and the projects being proposed for funding will be presented.
High-speed rail update. Staff will provide an update of recent progress regarding high-speed rail initiatives for the Fort Worth-to-Laredo project, including staff efforts to advance the initiatives. An update on the Dallas-to-Fort Worth and the Dallas-to-Houston projects will also be provided.
Air quality: Year in review. With the 2018 ozone season drawing to a close, staff will present information on preliminary ozone season results. Accomplishments of various air quality projects will also be highlighted.
