TxDOT Hearings Scheduled on Transfer of SH 121 from State to NTTA

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct two public hearings to receive comments from interested persons concerning the proposed removal from the state highway system and transfer to the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) of a segment of State Highway 121.
The segment is located from just east of Business 121 to the west side of FM 2281, a distance of 7.39 miles, in Dallas and Denton counties. The non-tolled area is just south of the existing SH 121 Tollway currently being run by TxDOT since its opening last year.
TxDOT‚s meetings will be on Tuesday, August 7, 2007 at 6:00 p.m., at Coppell Middle School - North, 120 Neches Trace, Coppell, Texas 75019 and Thursday August 9, 2007, at 6:00 p.m., at City of Lewisville, City Hall Council Chamber, 151 West Church Street, Lewisville, Texas 75057,
State law authorizes TxDOT to lease, sell, or transfer a toll project or system that is part of the state highway system, including a nontolled state highway or a segment of a nontolled state highway converted to a toll project, to a governmental entity that has the authority to operate a tolled highway. In North Texas that agency is the NTTA.
Descriptions, maps and drawings showing the proposed portion of State Highway 121 to be transferred and other information concerning the proposed transfer are on file and available for public inspection and copying by contacting Bill Compton, P.E., Texas Department of Transportation, 4777 E. US Hwy 80, Mesquite, TX 75150-6643, telephone 214-319-4489.
