Public Input

Public involvement is a critical element of the environmental study process. Over the course of the 183 North Mobility Project, the study team conducted open houses, published e-newsletters, visited neighborhood groups and other stakeholders, and kept the media informed.

The study team discussed various alternatives with the public and gathered feedback. This input was combined with technical analysis to identify the best options for meeting the project's purpose and need. Those options were subject to additional public review, and the Express Lanes Alternative was ultimately determined to be  the study's Preferred Alternative, recommended by the Mobility Authority to TxDOT as described in the Final Environmental Assessment.

All formal public input received during the study was incorporated into the final environmental study document that is submitted to TxDOT and environmentally approved in April 2016.
