Interstate 45 Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan
The Interstate (IH) 45 Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Infrastructure Deployment Plan outlines recommendations for building new infrastructure ZEV projects for both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), along IH 45. This corridor, which carries a large amount of freight, is key to advancing air quality efforts in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston as both face ozone nonattainment challenges that are impacted by heavy-duty diesel vehicles. For more information, visit www.nctcog.org/IH45-ZEV.
2022 Access North Texas Update
Access North Texas is the regional public transportation coordination plan for the 16-county North Central Texas region and documents the transportation needs of older adults, individuals with disabilities, and individuals with lower incomes across the region. Staff will provide a summary of updated goals and strategies developed to better serve these populations with public transportation. A draft plan will be posted for review and comment.
Regional Pedestrian Safety Action Plan: 2022 Update
The Regional Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (PSAP) serves as a guide for State, regional, and local governments for improving pedestrian safety across the 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Planning Area. This Plan was endorsed by the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) on June 10, 2021 and adopted by reference as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan, Mobility 2045 - 2022 Update, on June 9, 2022. The proposed 2022 Update can be viewed in a red-lined version of the documents on the NCTCOG website: www.nctcog.org/PedSafetyPlan.
Federal Performance Measures Update
Metropolitan Planning Organizations are required by MAP-21 and the FAST Act to monitor and set targets for a specific set of performance measures covering various aspects of the transportation system under their jurisdiction. Targets are established biennially for these measures as part of a four-year performance period. NCTCOG staff is in the process of analyzing outcomes from previously set targets while setting new targets for the next performance period and will provide an overview and update on the measures.
