Regional Safety Program
Due to the increase in fatalities and serious injury crashes across the State and the Dallas-Fort Worth region, NCTCOG has been working with the Texas Department of Transportation and other Metropolitan Planning Organizations within Texas on a Statewide Safety Task Force. The focus is to identify strategies to reduce crashes on the transportation system. As part of this effort, the Regional Transportation Council recently approved a safety funding program, and staff will provide an overview of the engineering, enforcement, and educational projects being developed through the program.
Mobility 2045 Update Transportation Conformity Determination

On Dec. 16, 2022, the US Department of Transportation granted a successful transportation conformity determination for the Mobility 2045 Update. The Clean Air Act of 1990 requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations with a nonattainment designation to perform an air quality analysis when a new metropolitan transportation plan is developed. Staff will present any effects on final project recommendations due to the Transportation Conformity review process.
