ACTION ALERT: NTTA Public Meeting Scheduled for Dallas North Tollway Extension, Phase 4A

By Sherita Coffelt - NTTA - Jan. 15, 2008

(Prosper, TX) - The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) will conduct an open house public meeting to discuss the design for the extension of the Dallas North Tollway from U.S. 380 north to Farm-to-Market (FM) 428 in Collin County, referred to as the Dallas North Tollway Extension, Phase 4A. The public meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2008, at Prestonwood Baptist Church, north campus, 1180 Prosper Trail in Prosper, Texas. All interested citizens are invited to attend this public meeting.

“At this meeting, we will provide information regarding the development of the proposed alternatives to interested citizens and stakeholders and to provide a forum for which the public may provide input and comments,” said Jeff Dailey, the NTTA’s Assistant Executive Director of Project Delivery. “This project will further open a corridor to the northern side of the metroplex. Not only will the project provide direct access beyond U.S. 380, it will serve as an additional step in creating a system link north.”

Maps, drawings and other information about the project will be on display, showing the corridor alignment and preliminary design information. The study team will be available at each display to assist in orientation and interpretation of the drawings and other materials and to discuss environmental effects of the proposed design.

Attendees will have the opportunity to provide the study team with comments and suggestions by providing verbal comments to be documented by a court reporter or submitting written comments. Such comments will assist project personnel with the design decisions associated with this study.

Any interested citizen may present verbal or written comments either at the public meeting or after the meeting to the NTTA by Feb. 7, 2008, in care of Ms. Leigh Hornsby, HNTB Corporation, 5910 W. Plano Parkway, Suite 200, Plano, TX 75093. Comments may also be sent electronically to mlhornsby@hntb.com.
