FINAL Public Hearing TOMORROW!
November 13, 2018 at 6pm
Location: The Dallas Arboretum.
TxDOT will build Option #2 if we don't show up in force. Your opinion needs to be on record in order for your voice to be heard.
There are 3 ways to speak out against TxDOT's Option #2 tomorrow.
Speak to a court reporter and tell them you Oppose Option #2, and support the community preferred plan Option #1.
Speak to an open microphone for up to 3 minutes, and tell them that you Oppose Option #2 because it re-aligns the state highway onto our overburdened Gaston Avenue.
Fill out and submit a public hearing comment form (provided by TxDOT at the public hearing), and make sure that every adult member of your household does the same.
Primary Flaws of Option 2
The re-alignment of State Highway-78 (SH-78/ aka Garland/Grand) onto our over burdened Gaston Avenue. This re-alignment will force those that wish to STAY on the Highway and continue onto I-30, to take a LEFT in order to do so.
TxDOT’s Option #2 REMOVES a FULL lane of traffic onto Grand. Currently there are 2 FULL lanes from Garland to Grand, and 1 shared lane. Option #2 will only provide 1 FULL lane and 1 short LEFT turn lane to Grand, leaving only 1.5 lanes to accommodate the 18,700 vehicles a day that wish to stay on the highway.
