Trinity Toll Road Public Hearing Set Tuesday
The North Texas Tollway Authority and TxDOT hold a hearing on the proposed Dallas Trinity Parkway Tuesday evening.
That’s the nine mile toll road the city plans to build within the Trinity River levees.
Officials will present the latest report on compatibility of the toll road with plans to fix the levees, which do not meet current federal flood protection standards.
Last week, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings threw his support behind the toll road, saying it’s safe for the levees, and necessary to alleviate downtown traffic congestion.
An open house featuring design drawings begins at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Dallas Convention Center. The public hearing starts at 7 p.m.
