Implementation Options, Including Proposed Construction of New Limited-Access Freeway/Tollway to be Discussed at Public Meeting

NCTCOG will present final draft recommendations for transportation improvements in the Blacklands corridor at a public meeting in Lavon on Sept. 4.

This presentation will include information on how recommendations, such as bicycle/pedestrian improvements or bus service, could be implemented. Representatives from the Texas Turnpike Corporation will provide information on the environmental assessment that will begin this fall for a new location freeway/tollway project. Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to provide comments and ask questions following the presentations.

Since initiating a feasibility study last year, NCTCOG has determined that transportation needs exist in an area stretching from Greenville to Garland that includes portions of Collin, Dallas, Hunt, and Rockwall counties. Planners have conducted a multimodal analysis of transportation alternatives to guide development of solutions and conceptual projects. A final report in December will present recommended strategies for the entire corridor.

The feasibility study showed that a new location highway could improve mobility in the area. The Texas Turnpike Corporation, a private firm, has begun work to develop this project as a potential toll road. To determine the location, TTC will complete an environmental and public involvement process under the supervision of the Texas Department of Transportation. Residents of the study area are encouraged to participate in this process.

PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE LIST OF FUNDED PROJECTS
A comprehensive list of funded transportation projects through 2018 is maintained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects with committed funds from federal, state and local sources are included in the TIP. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated on a regular basis. The current set of project modifications will be presented for public review and comment.

PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2014 AND FISCAL YEAR 2015 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM (UPWP)
The UPWP for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning tasks conducted by the metropolitan planning organization. Modifications to the Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 UPWP will be presented for public review and comment.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AGENCY PROGRAMS OF PROJECTS
The public is encouraged to comment on the proposed transit projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Urbanized Area Formula Program. The following agencies programs of projects will be presented:
- City of Arlington/Handitran
- City of Grand Prairie/Grand Connection
- City of Mesquite/MTED
- City/County Transportation
- Community Transit Services (CTS)
- Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)
- Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA)
- Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T)
- North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)
- Northeast Transportation Service (NETS)
- Public Transit Services (PTS)
- Special Programs for Aging Needs (SPAN)
- STAR Transit
- Texoma Area Paratransit System (TAPS)
This opportunity for comment meets the federal requirement for public participation in programs of projects. Please note that DART and DCTA also host their own public meetings. For more information about those meetings, please contact them directly.

MOBILITY 2035 - 2014 AMENDMENT AND ASSOCIATED CONFORMITY ANALYSIS
Adopted in March 2013, Mobility 2035 - 2013 Update is the long-term plan for road, rail, bicycle-pedestrian and other transportation improvements in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It identifies improvements to be made between now and 2035. Planners have continued to develop and refine projects contained in the plan. As projects are refined and move closer to construction, they must be accurately listed in both the long-term plan and shorter-term plan, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). As a result, staff propose strategically amending the long-term plan that guides transportation investments to incorporate the most current project level assumptions for a small number of projects. This would allow the projects to meet critical deadlines and progress toward implementation. Additionally, staff have analyzed the effects of the changes on the transportation-air quality balance to ensure North Central Texas meets air quality regulations. Results of the air quality conformity analysis will be summarized.

DRAFT RECOMMENDATIONS: 2014 TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM CALL FOR PROJECTS
Through the Transportation Alternatives Program, over $28 million is available for bicycle-pedestrian facilities, projects near schools, and boulevard/urban thoroughfare enhancements in the 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth area. Earlier this year, local governments; regional transportation authorities and transit agencies; school districts, local education agencies and schools; tribal governments and other local and regional governmental entities responsible for oversight of transportation or recreational trails could submit projects for consideration. Following a competitive, quantitative evaluation, staff will present recommendations for projects to receive funding.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN UPDATE
The North Central Texas Council of Governments Transportation Department seeks to inform North Texans about transportation and air quality projects and planning and involve them in decision-making. The Public Participation Plan outlines outreach and communications efforts to reach and gather input from North Texans. Staff will present proposed changes to the Public Participation Plan that address changing communications trends and efforts to enhance outreach and communications.

Additional Information From: Jahnae Stout, 817-608-2335, jstout@nctcog.org
Agenda:
PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE LIST OF FUNDED PROJECTS
A comprehensive list of funded transportation projects through 2018 is maintained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects with committed funds from federal, state and local sources are included in the TIP. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated on a regular basis. The current set of project modifications will be presented for public review and comment.

PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2014 AND FISCAL YEAR 2015 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM (UPWP)
The UPWP for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning tasks conducted by the metropolitan planning organization. Modifications to the Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 UPWP will be presented for public review and comment.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AGENCY PROGRAMS OF PROJECTS
The public is encouraged to comment on the proposed transit projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Urbanized Area Formula Program. The following agencies programs of projects will be presented:
- City of Arlington/Handitran
- City of Grand Prairie/Grand Connection
- City of Mesquite/MTED
- City/County Transportation
- Community Transit Services (CTS)
- Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)
- Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA)
- Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T)
- North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)
- Northeast Transportation Service (NETS)
- Public Transit Services (PTS)
- Special Programs for Aging Needs (SPAN)
- STAR Transit
- Texoma Area Paratransit System (TAPS)
This opportunity for comment meets the federal requirement for public participation in programs of projects. Please note that DART and DCTA also host their own public meetings. For more information about those meetings, please contact them directly.

In addition to the Urbanized Area Formula Program, proposed transit projects funded through FTA s FY 2014 Bus and Bus Facilities, Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities and State of Good Repair Programs will be presented for public comment.

MOBILITY 2035 - 2014 AMENDMENT AND ASSOCIATED CONFORMITY ANALYSIS
Adopted in March 2013, Mobility 2035 - 2013 Update is the long-term plan for road, rail, bicycle-pedestrian and other transportation improvements in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It identifies improvements to be made between now and 2035. Planners have continued to develop and refine projects contained in the plan. As projects are refined and move closer to construction, they must be accurately listed in both the long-term plan and shorter-term plan, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). As a result, staff propose strategically amending the long-term plan that guides transportation investments to incorporate the most current project level assumptions for a small number of projects. This would allow the projects to meet critical deadlines and progress toward implementation. Additionally, staff have analyzed the effects of the changes on the transportation-air quality balance to ensure North Central Texas meets air quality regulations. Results of the air quality conformity analysis will be summarized.

DRAFT RECOMMENDATIONS: 2014 TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM CALL FOR PROJECTS
Through the Transportation Alternatives Program, over $28 million is available for bicycle-pedestrian facilities, projects near schools, and boulevard/urban thoroughfare enhancements in the 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth area. Earlier this year, local governments; regional transportation authorities and transit agencies; school districts, local education agencies and schools; tribal governments and other local and regional governmental entities responsible for oversight of transportation or recreational trails could submit projects for consideration. Following a competitive, quantitative evaluation, staff will present recommendations for projects to receive funding.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN UPDATE
The North Central Texas Council of Governments Transportation Department seeks to inform North Texans about transportation and air quality projects and planning and involve them in decision-making. The Public Participation Plan outlines outreach and communications efforts to reach and gather input from North Texans. Staff will present proposed changes to the Public Participation Plan that address changing communications trends and efforts to enhance outreach and communications.

Agenda:
PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE LIST OF FUNDED PROJECTS
A comprehensive list of funded transportation projects through 2018 is maintained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects with committed funds from federal, state and local sources are included in the TIP. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated on a regular basis. The current set of project modifications will be presented for public review and comment.

PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2014 AND FISCAL YEAR 2015 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM (UPWP)
The UPWP for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning tasks conducted by the metropolitan planning organization. Modifications to the Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 UPWP will be presented for public review and comment.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AGENCY PROGRAMS OF PROJECTS
The public is encouraged to comment on the proposed transit projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Urbanized Area Formula Program. The following agencies programs of projects will be presented:
- City of Arlington/Handitran
- City of Grand Prairie/Grand Connection
- City of Mesquite/MTED
- City/County Transportation
- Community Transit Services (CTS)
- Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)
- Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA)
- Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T)
- North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)
- Northeast Transportation Service (NETS)
- Public Transit Services (PTS)
- Special Programs for Aging Needs (SPAN)
- STAR Transit
- Texoma Area Paratransit System (TAPS)
This opportunity for comment meets the federal requirement for public participation in programs of projects. Please note that DART and DCTA also host their own public meetings. For more information about those meetings, please contact them directly.

In addition to the Urbanized Area Formula Program, proposed transit projects funded through FTA s FY 2014 Bus and Bus Facilities, Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities and State of Good Repair Programs will be presented for public comment.

MOBILITY 2035 - 2014 AMENDMENT AND ASSOCIATED CONFORMITY ANALYSIS
Adopted in March 2013, Mobility 2035 - 2013 Update is the long-term plan for road, rail, bicycle-pedestrian and other transportation improvements in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It identifies improvements to be made between now and 2035. Planners have continued to develop and refine projects contained in the plan. As projects are refined and move closer to construction, they must be accurately listed in both the long-term plan and shorter-term plan, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). As a result, staff propose strategically amending the long-term plan that guides transportation investments to incorporate the most current project level assumptions for a small number of projects. This would allow the projects to meet critical deadlines and progress toward implementation. Additionally, staff have analyzed the effects of the changes on the transportation-air quality balance to ensure North Central Texas meets air quality regulations. Results of the air quality conformity analysis will be summarized.

DRAFT RECOMMENDATIONS: 2014 TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM CALL FOR PROJECTS
Through the Transportation Alternatives Program, over $28 million is available for bicycle-pedestrian facilities, projects near schools, and boulevard/urban thoroughfare enhancements in the 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth area. Earlier this year, local governments; regional transportation authorities and transit agencies; school districts, local education agencies and schools; tribal governments and other local and regional governmental entities responsible for oversight of transportation or recreational trails could submit projects for consideration. Following a competitive, quantitative evaluation, staff will present recommendations for projects to receive funding.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN UPDATE
The North Central Texas Council of Governments Transportation Department seeks to inform North Texans about transportation and air quality projects and planning and involve them in decision-making. The Public Participation Plan outlines outreach and communications efforts to reach and gather input from North Texans. Staff will present proposed changes to the Public Participation Plan that address changing communications trends and efforts to enhance outreach and communications.
