Notice of intent.
The FHWA issued a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a Trinity Parkway reliever route, a transportation project, in the Federal Register on June 16, 1999 (Volume 64, Number 115). The FHWA is now issuing this supplementary Notice of Intent to include in the EIS a City of Dallas evaluation of a proposed City of Dallas Lake Plan located within the Trinity River Dallas Floodway in Dallas County, Texas. This proposed Lake Plan potentially affects the project corridor for the transportation project, and several of the route alternatives under consideration. Supplementary analysis is needed to fully address the impacts of joint development of these actions.Start Further Info
