I345 Feasibility Study Location Map

STUDY DESCRIPTION

As Dallas County population continues to grow and I-345 reaches its estimated remaining useful service life, it is necessary to plan for the future of the roadway. This study will help to determine the future of I-345.

STATION 1:  WELCOME

At this station, you can:

  • Review the key takeaways for the public meetings
  • Review the Study Location Map to see the limits of the study and where I-345 is located
  • Watch the I-345 flyover video for aerial perspectives of the existing highway

STATION 2:  STUDY APPROACH

At this station, you can:

  • View the Study Goals for both CityMAP and the I-345 Feasibility Study and why we are studying I-345
  • Review the Study Approach to get information on the study process
  • Review the I-345 Project Timeline to understand the overall timeline and next steps

STATION 3:  ENVIRONMENTAL

At this station, you can:

  • View the environmental constraints map which helps planners and engineers determine the least impactful method to fulfill the purpose of the project.

STATION 4:  PREVIOUS FEEDBACK

At this station, you can:

  • Review a summary of feedback received during the first series of public meetings in 2019
  • Review a summary of feedback received during the second series of public meetings in 2021
  • Review the common themes we heard and received during the second series of public meetings
  • Review the conceptual alternatives that were presented at the second series of public meetings
  • View a conceptual rendering of the conceptual alternatives with key takeaways

STATION 5:  TRAFFIC

At this station, you can:

  • Learn what origin-destination (O-D) data is and where, when and why we collect this data
  • View O-D maps on three specific routes that utilize I-345
  • Learn how each alternative is projected to impact traffic in 2045

Learn how the origin destination data was used to develop the representative travel time exhibits
Review various travel time exhibits. The travel time percent change shown on the following exhibits was developed using the 2045 calibrated subarea regional model. It is an average percent change of 2045 projected travel times when compared to the No Build/Leave I-345 As-Is Alternative.

STATION 6:  ALTERNATIVE EVALUATION

At this station, you can:

  • Review how each alternative has been evaluated
  • Learn how alternatives were eliminated or refined
  • Understand how we determined the recommended alternative

STATION 7:  RECOMMENDED ALTERNATIVE

At this station, you can:

  • Review the changes made to the recommended alternative based on input provided during previous public involvement  
  • Review design refinements made to the Hybrid alternative presented at the 2021 public meetings
  • Understand the alternative screening process
  • Review potential areas for capping over the recommended alternative
  • View capping examples in use today throughout the country
  • View 3-D renderings of the recommended alternative
  • View the recommended alternative roll plot

STATION 8:  PROJECT PARTNERS

At this station, you can:

  • View the coordination timeline with project partners such as NCTCOG, City of Dallas and DART

STATION 9:  NEXT STEPS

At this station, you can:

  • Review the next steps after this feasibility study is completed. Once the report has been published, the project will move into the Schematic/Environmental Analysis of the Recommended Alternative.
