Learn about transportation initiatives in the North Texas region during a public meeting at 6 p.m. Nov. 11 at the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), 616 Six Flags Drive in Arlington.

These are the scheduled presentations:
Hyperloop: Where are we building it? Staff will provide a status report on hyperloop technology in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
HOV transportation control measures. As a result of changing transportation needs, NCTCOG staff is conducting a transportation control measure substitution for high-occupancy vehicle projects. Traffic signal improvements, such as signal retiming, can enhance traffic flow and help decrease emissions. Staff has identified traffic signal corridors in the nonattainment region that will serve as substitution projects and will present the air quality results of the substitution.
Alternative fuel corridors. As part of the federal transportation bill, the U.S. Department of Transportation is required to identify highways that have adequate alternative fuel infrastructure. Staff will present an update on the current status of highway designations, as well as next steps with regard to alternative fuel station signage and development of additional infrastructure.
Trail of the Month video series. The NCTCOG Transportation Department is highlighting 12 shared-use trails in the Dallas-Fort Worth region through a series of videos detailing their benefits, including economic development, regional connectivity and improved quality of life. Staff will provide a brief update on this initiative as well as showcase a few videos from the series.
