TxDOT Public Hearing for Lake Ridge Parkway July 10

TxDOT - June 12, 2007

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a public hearing on the proposed widening and extension of Lake Ridge Pkwy. from south of Great Southwest Pkwy./High Hawk Blvd. to Interstate 20 (I-20) on Tuesday, July 10, at West Elementary School, located at 2911 Kingswood Blvd. in Grand Prairie. The hearing will begin with an open house at 6 p.m. followed by a presentation at 7 p.m. A public comment session will be held after the presentation.

During the event, TxDOT representatives will discuss the widening of Lake Ridge Pkwy. in Dallas and Tarrant Counties for a distance of approximately 2 miles, to enhance the regional transportation system by improving mobility and the connectivity with roadways in the southern Dallas-Fort Worth Region.

Proposed enhancements to the project would widen Lake Ridge Pkwy’s existing four-lane, divided urban roadway to a six-lane, divided curb and gutter roadway with left-turn lanes at selected intersections. Also, it is being proposed to extend Lake Ridge Pkwy. from north of Polo Road to the south frontage road of I-20, adding approximately 25.1 acres of additional right-of-way.

The environmental document, maps, drawings and other project information will be on display at the hearing. This and other information are available for viewing and copying at the TxDOT Southwest Dallas County Area Office, located at 1424 High Meadows Way in Cedar Hill, and at the TxDOT Dallas District Office, located at 4777 East Highway 80 in Mesquite.
