The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing improvements to Interstate Highway (I) 35 East (E) from United States Highway (US) 67 to I-30 and US 67 from I-20 to I-35E in Dallas County, Texas. Pursuant to Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, Part 1, Chapter 2, Subchapter E, §2.107 and §2.108 and Code of Federal Regulations, Title 23, Chapter I, Subchapter H, §771.111 and Title 40, Chapter V, §1506, this notice advises the public that a draft environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review and that TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at the Freda Lindsay World Missions Building at Christ for the Nations Institute, 444 Fawn Ridge Drive, Dallas, TX 75224. Displays will be available for viewing at 6 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project.

The proposed project collectively referred to as the “I-35E/US 67 Project” and previously referred to as “The Southern Gateway Managed Lanes Project” consists of improvements within the City of Dallas, in Dallas County, Texas, a distance of approximately 11 miles. The proposed improvements include the conversion of the two existing reversible high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to two reversible non-tolled express lanes from Colorado Boulevard to I-30, full reconstruction of the section of I-35E between US 67 and Colorado Boulevard to include two reversible non-tolled express lanes, widening of the mainlanes from 8 to 10, and reconstruction of the frontage roads. Improvements to US 67 from I-20 to I-35E include partial construction to change the existing concurrent HOV lanes to one reversible non-tolled express lane within the existing median and widening of the mainlanes from 4 to 6. The proposed project would include sidewalks and 14-foot shared use lanes to accommodate vehicles and bicyclists along those frontage roads where full reconstruction is proposed. Dedicated bike lanes and sidewalks are proposed at cross-streets where full reconstruction of the cross-streets is proposed.

Displays available for viewing: 6 p.m.
