Everyone, please go to this link and take the survey which will drive the NCTCOG initial review of public opinion about adding rail, or a bike trail or even a new road project to the current 2035 Mobility Plan. The survey is weighted to get you to select some form of transportation improvement. If you don’t know the 2035 Mobility Plan, get the copy and read over the short presentation. Know what is planned so you are not sucked into solving a problem that doesn’t exist or has a programmed solution.
Simple solutions improving our current roads, like banning trucks in the left lane of I30 from Greenville to Garland and/or making the frontage roads one direction each, and those changes alone would reduce traffic that slows movement to and from Rockwall/Garland due to the causeway across the lake. Allowing HWY 66 to become a 4 lane would revitalize Caddo Mills and remove the impact I30 had on the city by bringing local traffic back to 66 from Rockwall to Greenville. Royce City is growing due to their part of 66 being improved, why not Hunt Co. towns and cities getting the same oppurtunity.Choose your selection carefully and remember his survey counts!
The survey is located on the right side of the webpage in a square showing a car and the question written in orange. There is another survey below it about how information is flowing from NCTCOG to you.
Also please write the NCTCOG an email stating your opinion on how the Blacklands Cooridor should be developed or not developed. Each of your emails will become part of the public record. However, it’s easier for the NCTCOG to see a survey results than read hundreds of emails, so make them do their due diligence and submit both.
This issue will be with us for our generation since Hunt Co. joined the Metroplex. We are looked at as flyover/drive thru land. People outside of our area don’t see our communities, only possible profits from our land. Don’t allow your future to be dictated by politicians. Be part of the solution and growth of our community.
