SH 161 from South of Conflans Road to North of SH 114 - Public Meeting

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

CSJ: 2964-01-022

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) will conduct a Public Meeting on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013, for the proposed the implementation of interim bottleneck operational improvements to address localized congestion for an approximately 6.326 mile section of State Highway (SH) 161 from south of Conflans Road to north of SH 114 in Irving, Dallas County, Texas.

The purpose of the Public Meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. It will be conducted in an informal open house format. Representatives from TxDOT, the RTC, and regional partners will be available to answer questions about the proposed project.

The proposed project would convert the use of the inside shoulder to an interim operational travel lane during AM/PM peak-hours periods as a method to increase the performance of the existing highway's capacity. The proposed improvements would include restriping the existing paved inside shoulder to provide an interim operational travel lane thereby enabling three general purpose lanes of operations in each direction during AM/PM peak-hour periods. TxDOT and its regional partners are looking for an interim improvement to improve mobility and safety until a long-term improvement can be implemented. The proposed project is anticipated to have a beneficial interim effect on regional and community traffic operations by improving traffic flow through the project area until a more substantial and ultimate-build project (toll) is implemented.

Public Meeting: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
