The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)’s Regional Transportation Council approved Mobility 2045, the metropolitan transportation plan for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The plan outlines $135.4 billion in spending, including increased highway capacity, infrastructure maintenance, expanded passenger rail, bus, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and technological enhancements to the existing transportation system.

While previous mobility plans have incorporated performance-based planning, recent federal requirements have identified new performance measure targets such as safety and emissions reduction, and tolled managed lanes.

The Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration will now determine whether Mobility 2045 meets emissions requirements for ozone nonattainment areas; a decision is expected in November.
