Where:

Double Tree Hilton Dallas-Market Center
2015 Market Center Boulevard
Dallas, TX 75207

When:

Thursday, June 16, 2016
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed operational improvements to Interstate Highway 35 East (I-35E) from I-30 to Oak Lawn Avenue within the City of Dallas in Dallas County, Texas.

Description:

Currently, the various on- and off-ramps in close proximity to one another contribute to traffic congestion and weaving conditions within the project limits. Proposed improvements include:

  • Reconstruction of the southbound (SB) frontage road
  • Construction of a two-lane SB and northbound (NB) collector-distributor road
  • Reconstruction of ramps to improve traffic operations that address the existing weaving conditions

The proposed project is approximately 2.17 miles long. Although no additional right of way would be required, a permanent easement of approximately 0.46 acre would be required from the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).

Verbal and written comments from the public regarding the Lowest Stemmons Project can be presented at the meeting. Written comments may be submitted to TxDOT Project Manager, 4777 E. Highway 80, Mesquite, TX 75150-6643. Comments may be submitted for a period of 10 days after the meeting and must be postmarked by Monday, June 27, 2016, to be included as part of the official public record.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
