Input sought on transportation projects and programs

Posted July 9, 2019

During July and August, the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) will conduct an online public input opportunity to allow residents to comment on transportation projects and programs affecting the region.

As a recipient of federal transportation funds, NCTCOG is required to establish and periodically update Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation goals to encourage contracting opportunities for minority and historically underutilized businesses. The draft update of the DBE participation goals for fiscal years 2020-22 will be posted for review and comment.

The Texas Department of Transportation, working through the Texas Transportation Commission, develops a 10-year listing of major transportation projects in Texas. Staff will provide a status report on projects in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.

Efforts are underway to develop a new program aimed at preventing the impacts of stormwater in flood-prone areas of the region. Federal, state and regional organizations are working together to make the Dallas-Fort Worth area a national leader in reducing loss of life and financial impacts of major flooding events. Details of this proposed project will be posted.

Finally, information on the Regional Smoking Vehicle Program and funding from the Volkswagen settlement will be available.

Anyone with questions or comments is encouraged to provide input online from July 15 through Aug. 28.
