NCTCOG to Present Transportation Recommendations for Fair Park Area on March 19

Meeting gives residents another chance to provide input on connecting historic areas

March 12, 2024 (Arlington, TEXAS) – The North Central Texas Council of Governments will provide another opportunity for the public to review recommendations for multimodal routes to improve transportation links between downtown Dallas and the Fair Park area at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 19 in Dallas.

The Dallas Central Business District-Fair Park Links Study focuses on multimodal transportation needs from downtown Dallas through Deep Ellum to Fair Park and examines how these important parts of the city are linked, including what combination of transportation choices may work best for the historic area.

This meeting, located at Life in Deep Ellum, 2803 Taylor St., will allow residents and stakeholders unable to attend an evening meeting hosted in January the chance to review draft recommendations for providing better connections from downtown Dallas to these nearby historic areas.

The draft roadway, freight, public transit and active transportation recommendations resulted from a public outreach effort last year that included engagement with stakeholders and other members of the public. In addition to two previous public meetings on the topic, the project has featured a virtual engagement opportunity. An online mapping activity that opened following the January public meeting has allowed users to review the draft recommendations and provide feedback. Responses to the online survey will be accepted through March 31.

A major focus of this project and study is to reconnect the neighborhoods that were bisected during the construction of Interstate Highway 30 and IH 345. To achieve this goal, the study is considering new designs for these affected areas.
