Purpose TxDOT is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Loop 9, Segment A project to construct a six-lane new location frontage road system between US 67 and IH-35E through Dallas and Ellis counties, Texas.

The purpose of the public meeting is to present the project studies completed to date and identify relevant issues related to the proposed Loop 9 project as part of the National Environmental Policy Act process. The public meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the range of alternatives, environmental constraints, and project plans developed to date to be considered and evaluated in the EIS.

The proposed Loop 9, Segment A project is an approximately 9.4-mile proposed new location six-lane roadway within an approximate 600-foot right-of-way. The proposed project right-of-way would include a median that would accommodate the future construction of an ultimate access-controlled mainlane facility. A No-Build Alternative, four Build Alternatives, and four modifications to these alternatives resulting from prior public involvement will be presented at the public meeting.

The proposed project would, subject to selection of a preferred alternative and final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace between 30 and 70 residences and between 57 and 72 non-residential structures.

Accessibility The virtual public meeting and in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office, at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, February 25, 2022.
