The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), will hold an open house and conduct a formal Public Hearing on Thursday, April 24, 2014, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (formerly the Dallas Convention Center Arena), 650 S. Griffin Street, Dallas, Texas, 75202, to discuss the proposed Trinity Parkway Project in the City of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas.

The Open House will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. before the Public Hearing to allow for questions and review of project exhibits. NTTA and TxDOT staff will be present to answer questions regarding the proposed project at the Open House.

The formal Public Hearing presentation will begin promptly at 7 p.m. followed by a formal public comment period. The purpose of the Public Hearing is to inform the public and agencies and solicit comments on the schematic plans for the project alternatives and on the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). While not traditionally provided after the FEIS stage of project development, due to public interest in the Project, the NTTA, TxDOT, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have agreed to provide an additional Public Hearing after the FEIS was made available to the public.

Read the Notice of Public Hearing for complete details.

Important note: After the Public Notice was released, there was a change to the public comment period. Effective April 16, 2014, the Texas Administrative Code Title 43 Part 1 Chapter 2 Subchapter E, Rule 2.107 Public Hearing requires project sponsors to provide not less than 15 days for public comment following an EIS project hearing. This information is not included on the Public Notice that is linked above.

Written comments may be submitted via mail to:
NTTA
Attn: Corridor Manager, Trinity Parkway Project
P.O. Box 260729
Plano, TX  75026

Written comments also will be accepted by email at trinityparkway@ntta.org.
All comments must be received or postmarked on or before Friday, May 9, 2014, to be included in the Public Hearing record. An April 16, 2014 rule by the Texas Administrative Code extends the post-hearing comment period on an EIS public hearing to not less than 15 days. It was originally not less than 10 days.

Schedule for Study
The design, funding, and construction of a toll road is a long and complicated process. Ultimate funding and construction is dependent upon many factors not in the control of the NTTA or other governmental entities. A substantial amount of information must be obtained and many decisions must be made by the NTTA Board of Directors and other entities before the project may go forward. No one should rely upon the statements made in this website document regarding the status of the project or statements made regarding other projects as a basis for making a financial decision.
