Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019
6 p.m. Open House
7 p.m. Official Public Hearing
TxDOT as the lead agency, in conjunction with the City of Grapevine, invites the public to comment on the proposed extension of the existing Cotton Belt Trail along West Dallas Road from William D. Tate Avenue (Ball Street) to Dooley Street, continuing north along Dooley Street from West Dallas Road to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) railway, then continuing east from Dooley Street to Texan Trail, where it will connect with the existing Links Trail. The proposed project is located in the City of Grapevine in northeast Tarrant County. Comments must be received on or before Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019, to be a part of the official record.
The proposed project consists of the construction of approximately 1.5 miles of the Cotton Belt Trail consisting of a 10-foot wide trail section along the north side of West Dallas Road between William D. Tate Avenue (Ball Street) and Dooley Street, a 10-foot wide trail section along the east side of Dooley Street from Dallas Road north to Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) right of way (ROW), and a 12-foot wide trail section east from Dooley Street along the north side of the DART rail corridor to Texan Trail where it will narrow to 10-feet wide and connect with the Links Trail, a TxDOT on-system trail.
To construct the 10-foot wide trail section along West Dallas Road, the existing 5-lane undivided, 67-foot wide pavement section would be reduced on the north side to a 4-lane divided roadway, 59-foot wide pavement section. A 6-foot wide sidewalk would be constructed along the south side of West Dallas Road between William D. Tate Avenue (Ball Street) and Jean Street. No additional right of way or easements would be required for the proposed project. The proposed project would not encroach on a floodplain, wetland, or involve the use or taking of a property protected by Section 4(f) De Minimis, Parks and Wildlife Code Chapter 26 or Natural Resources Code Chapter 183.

If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (817) 410-3000 at least five working days prior to the meeting.
