Top Stories: Trinity Parkway Up For Vote; Inside Airport Design

Aug 9, 2017

The top local stories this morning from KERA News: The Dallas City Council today is expected to vote on whether to pull support for building a controversial toll road along the Trinity River.

A resolution from five members would reject Alternative 3C. That's the only version of the Trinity Parkway that received federal approval. If the council pulls support for the toll road, the city will have to inform the department and the North Texas Tollway Authority. Learn more about the Trinity Parkway's history here.
