As part of the federal government’s evaluation of the Trinity Toll Road, they must take public comment. If you didn’t get a chance to attend the “public hearing” last month, you can still provide written comment (which will be included in the public record) through June 30. Here’s the NTTA press release:
Trinity Parkway Public Comment Period Extended
Plano, TX – The public comment period on the Trinity Parkway has been extended until June 30 to allow more time for the public to review and comment on the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS). The Federal Highway Administration made this decision after they received requests for extensions at and after the Trinity Parkway public hearing held on May 5.
The public comment period is a stage of the environmental review process when the comments are sought from the general public about the project. Initially, the public comment period was scheduled to end on May 15.
Written comments may be submitted via mail to:
NTTA, Attn: Corridor Manager
Re: Trinity Parkway Project
P.O. Box 260729
Plano, TX, 75026
Written comments also will be accepted by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments must be received or postmarked on or before Tuesday, June 30, 2009, to be included in the public hearing record.
Those interested in reviewing the SDEIS can do so on-line at http://www.ntta.org/AboutUs/Projects/TrinityParkway.htm.
