|Purpose||The TxDOT is proposing to construct Loop 9, Segment A which is a six-lane new location frontage road system between US 67 and I-35E through Dallas and Ellis Counties, Texas.|
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:
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.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW and potentially displace 36 residences, 3 businesses and 59 non-residential or commercial structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses.
The virtual public hearing 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 hearing or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office, at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, December 5, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
