TxDOT will hold a hearing about Bicycle Use in DFW for the Dallas and Fort Worth Districts on Wednesday, June 25, at 5 – 8 PM, to update the public on bicycle plans and progress in the DFW districts.
TxDOT and NCTCOG will give a presentation at 6 PM with an open house format before and after the presentation. Maps and drawings will be on display to show the existing bike facilities and upcoming transportation projects on the state system and Dallas/Fort Worth regional area.
Please attend this meeting to let TxDOT know that people ride bikes in Dallas and Fort Worth! The meeting is at Irving City Hall (map), 825 W. Irving Blvd. See the TxDOT meeting page for more information.
TxDOT is required to offer a hearing about bicycle use in every TxDOT district office every year, but unless they receive sufficient interest from residents, it often doesn’t happen. This year, people who ride bikes across the Dallas and Fort Worth areas responded quickly to TxDOT’s call for hearing requests, so much so that they received the required number of responses within just a day or two. That’s great work from everyone in the region who spoke up. As the saying goes, decisions are made by people who show up, and this time, people who ride bikes showed up when it mattered! Please do the same one more time and attend this meeting– TxDOT needs to know that people who ride bikes expect TxDOT to take their needs seriously.
