Arlington, Texas – The North Central Texas Council of Governments will share updates on current and upcoming projects at its next public meeting, to be held at noon Monday, Sept. 12.

The Roadway Safety Plan is the first regional proposal to eliminate fatal and serious injury crashes on the region’s roadways by 2050. Staff will present details of this plan, which uses a data-driven approach to identify especially dangerous crash types and recommends countermeasures to prevent them from occurring.

Staff will also provide details on this year's National Drive Electric Week North Texas celebration. The event will take place on Sunday, October 2 in Dallas.

Additionally, staff will present detailed information related to several initiatives, including proposed transit projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration through the final award of Fiscal Year 2022 and the Management, Operations and Safety Program. This effort provides funds to improve the region’s air quality and manage the transportation system.

Finally, proposed modifications to the list of funded projects will be posted for review and comment. Updated public comment rules for RTC meetings, 2022 Walk to School Day, Map Your Experience, Access North Texas and the Regional Smoking Vehicle Program will also be highlighted.
