[ARCHIVED] Loop 9 public meetings set for SE corridor, US 67 to I-20

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will host a second series of Public Meetings for the purpose of soliciting public comments on the proposed Loop 9 Southeast Corridor/Feasibility Study from US 67 in Ellis County to I-20 in southeast Dallas County. A new location roadway is proposed with possible toll applications being applied. 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. Identical information will be presented at both meetings.
The Public Meetings will be conducted in an Open House format along with a formal presentation. You are encouraged to attend and provide your concerns, issues and suggestions. The upcoming Public Meetings will be held on September 24th and 26th at the locations listed below:
