IH 30 From SH 161 to Belt Line Road - Public Hearing

Thursday, August 14, 2014

CSJs: 1068-04-119, 1068-04-149

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a public hearing to discuss proposed improvements along IH 30 in the City of Grand Prairie, Dallas County, Texas.  The public hearing will be held on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at the Ruthe Jackson Center, 3113 S Carrier Parkway, Grand Prairie, TX 75052. Open house will be held from 6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M., to allow for questions and review of project exhibits. The formal public hearing presentation will begin at 7:00 P.M.

The proposed project includes the construction of new frontage roads with one to two 11-foot wide travel lane(s) including one 14-foot wide outside shared use lane to accommodate bicycle use and 6-foot wide sidewalks to facilitate pedestrian traffic. The existing eastbound exit ramp and westbound entrance ramp to and from Belt Line Road would be reconstructed and relocated to the west of their current location (near NW 7th Street) and a new eastbound entrance ramp and westbound exit ramp would be constructed immediately west of Belt Line Road. Palace Parkway would be reconstructed and reconfigured to connect to the proposed westbound frontage road.  The proposed project would require approximately 4.4 acres of additional ROW and 0.2 acre for drainage easements. No displacements or relocations would occur. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and the tentative schedules for right-of-way acquisition and construction will be available at the public hearing and can also be obtained from the TxDOT Dallas District Office. Portions of the proposed project are located within the 100-year floodplain.  Approximately 0.1 acres of wetlands would be impacted by the proposed project.
