North Texans are invited to comment online on several current transportation planning initiatives, including the effects of COVID-19 on regional transportation, emissions-reduction plans, potential funding awards and federal performance measures.

An audio recording of the presentations will be posted and comments will be accepted through Sept. 9.

To help the public better understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the transportation system, North Central Texas Council of Government (NCTCOG) staff will provide an update on several performance metrics. These policy metrics address financial implications of the pandemic, travel behavior responses and benefits, and offsetting unemployment increases.

Staff will also provide updates on several project initiatives. In 2019, the Federal Highway Administration awarded funding to NCTCOG to develop the Interstate Highway 45 Zero Emission Corridor Plan to support both battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles along IH 45 from Dallas to Houston. Staff is seeking stakeholder involvement from fuel providers, fleets, infrastructure developers, fuel associations, government agencies, utilities and interest groups. An update on planning progress will be provided as part of this online input opportunity.

Additionally, staff will present recommended projects to receive funding as part of the 2020 Transportation Alternatives Call for Projects. Finally, staff will discuss recent federal transportation rules that require metropolitan planning organizations to monitor and set targets for a specific set of performance measures. Observed trends, project implementation and the effects of COVID-19 will help determine whether target adjustments will be recommended.

The department’s new interactive map tool, the Regional Smoking Vehicle Program, vehicle incentive opportunities and administrative revisions to Mobility 2045, the region’s long-term transportation plan, will also be highlighted.

To learn more, contact the NCTCOG Transportation Department by email at 817-695-9240.
