The proposed Loop 9, Segment A project is an approximately 9.4-mile proposed new location, six-lane roadway within Dallas and Ellis Counties and the surrounding communities. Loop 9, Segment A would include an eastbound and westbound frontage road facility, each consisting of three 12-foot lanes, an 8-foot inside shoulder, and an 8-foot outside shoulder. The proposed project right-of-way (ROW) would include a median (358 to 512 feet wide) that would accommodate the future construction of an ultimate access-controlled mainlane facility. Additionally, a 10-foot-wide berm has been preserved on either side of the proposed ROW to accommodate a future shared-use path. The total proposed ROW acreage is estimated at 597 acres. The proposed project passes through the Cities of Cedar Hill, Ovilla, Glenn Heights and Red Oak.
