Thursday, February 26, 2015

CSJs: 0092-01-XXX, 0092-14-XXX

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in cooperation with the City of Dallas, will conduct a public meeting for proposed improvements to I-45 and S.M. Wright Freeway (S.M. Wright) near downtown Dallas in Dallas County, Texas. The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2015 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Park South YMCA, 2500 Romine Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75215. 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 with no formal presentation. Representatives from TxDOT and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the proposed project.

The proposed project includes the reconfiguration of the existing interchange between I-45, S.M. Wright, Cesar Chavez Boulevard, and Good Latimer Expressway. The proposed improvements will extend S.M. Wright to connect exclusively to Cesar Chavez Boulevard. The existing S.M. Wright underpass of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (MLK) would be converted to an at-grade signalized intersection. The I-45 frontage roads would be extended to MLK, and the existing ramps connecting MLK and I-45 would be relocated to the proposed signalized intersections of the proposed frontage roads and MLK. A northbound exit ramp to Grand Avenue. from I-45 as well as a southbound entrance ramp from Grand Avenue. to I-45 would also be constructed. Pedestrian and bicycle improvements would be constructed along S.M. Wright to create a continuous network between S.M. Wright, MLK, Grand Avenue., and Good Latimer Expressway. Additional right-of-way (ROW), approximately two acres, is anticipated to be required along both the east and west side of I-45. One fire station and two commercial businesses would potentially be displaced as a result of the proposed project.
