Loop 9 Southeast Corridor/Feasibility Study From US 67 in Ellis County to I-20 in Dallas County CSJs: 2964-10-002, 003

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct two Public Meetings for the purpose of soliciting public comment on the proposed Loop 9 Southeast Corridor/Feasibility Study from United States (US) Highway 67 to Interstate Highway 20 (I-20) within Ellis, Dallas, and Kaufman Counties. The corridor is approximately 35 miles in length. A new location roadway with possible toll applications is proposed. The intent of the Loop 9 Southeast Corridor/Feasibility Study is to develop a locally-preferred alignment that would improve transportation efficiency within Dallas, Ellis and Kaufman Counties.  

The first meeting will be held Thursday, May 16, 2013 at Ferris High School, 1025 E. 8th Street, Ferris, Texas 75125, and the second meeting will be held on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at Ovilla Road Baptist Church, 3251 Ovilla Road, Ovilla, Texas 75154. Identical information will be presented at both meetings.  The meetings will be an Open House format between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with no formal presentation. 

Maps, drawings, and other information about the project will be on display, showing the location of the study corridor and corridor alternatives.  Project personnel will be available to discuss possible mobility and environmental effects of the proposed project and to assist in orientation and interpretation of the drawings and other material on hand. Project information is also available online at www.loop9.org.

All interested parties are invited to attend these Public Meetings and express their views on these proposed improvements.  Persons interested in attending the meetings who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact TxDOT’s Dallas District Office Public Information Officer at (214) 320-6100 at least two (2) working days prior to the Public Meetings. Because the Public Meetings will be conducted in English, any requests for language interpreters or other special communication needs should also be made at least two (2) working days prior to the Public Meetings. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate those needs.

Written comments regarding the study may be submitted at the Public Meetings. If one wishes to submit a written comment after the Public Meetings it must be hand‑delivered or postmarked on or before Monday, June 3, 2013. Written comments can be submitted to Bruce Nolley, P.E., Texas Department of Transportation, Dallas District Office, 4777 East Highway 80, Mesquite, Texas  75150. Mr. Nolley can also be contacted for additional information at (214) 320-6156.
