The Trinity River Project has changed dramatically from the plan approved by Dallas voters in 1998. The magnificent urban park, complete with lakes and promenades, is nowhere to be seen. A high-speed, limited access toll road is planned to be built within what was supposed to be our Central Park.

The toll road is more than $600 million over budget. Due to safety concerns, it has recently been moved even farther into the park, further reducing parkland and lakes.

Given these significant changes, we believe Dallas voters deserve the opportunity to vote on whether we want a toll road in the Downtown Trinity Park.

We are TrinityVote, a broad-based coalition of Dallas residents who believe that our Trinity River Project is off-course and needs to get back on track.

Our coalition includes neighborhood residents, developers, environmentalists, urban planners, architects, and others who believe that putting a toll road in our park will irreparably destroy the opportunity to create an incredible signature park on the edge of Downtown Dallas.

Join us. Help us reclaim the Trinity River Project.
