Public invited to hear planning, active transportation Updates May 13

The North Central Texas Council of Governments will host a public meeting in May to provide updates on several transportation planning efforts across the region.

The meeting will take place at NCTCOG’s Arlington offices, 616 Six Flags Drive, at 6 p.m. Monday, May 13.

The Unified Planning Work Program for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning efforts to be conducted by NCTCOG as the metropolitan planning organization.

Draft recommendations for the fiscal year 2020 and fiscal year 2021 will be presented for public review and comment.

Additionally, staff will present a recommended summary of projects to receive funding as part of a 2019 Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program Call for Projects.

The 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth area has been allocated approximately $8 million to be awarded to transportation alternatives projects.

Among the eligible projects are on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure associated with projects that will improve safety.

The National Highway System is a network of nationally significant roadways that support the movement of people and goods among population centers, international border crossings, major military installations and intermodal facilities.

In 2018, the Federal Highway Administration initiated a universal review of the NHS for the first time since its inception.

Draft recommendations for the Dallas-Fort Worth area from this review will be presented.

Proposed modifications to the FY2018 and FY2019 will be available online for review and comment.

Educational material and information on how to report a smoking vehicle is available upon request. The Regional Smoking Vehicle Program allows North Texans to help improve air quality by anonymously reporting vehicles emitting visible smoke and pollution.
