10-Year Plan Update

In December 2016, the Regional Transportation Council approved a 10-Year Plan identifying major projects to be implemented in the region by Fiscal Year 2026. An updated draft of the project list that goes out to FY 2029 and details on the project scoring process will be presented for review and comment.


2019 Congestion Management Plan Update

Federal regulations mandate urbanized areas with populations over 200,000 must implement and maintain a Congestion Management Process (CMP) for measuring transportation congestion levels and prioritizing management strategies. Staff will present a brief overview of federal CMP requirements, the history and role of the CMP in the metropolitan planning process and elements and topics to be considered in the CMP update.


Mobility 2045 Status Report

Mobility 2045 defines a long-term vision for the region's transportation system and guides spending of federal and state transportation funds. This includes funding for highways, transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and other programs that reduce congestion and improve air quality. An implementation status update will be presented.


511DFW Traveler Information System

Traveler information for the region related to freeways, toll roads, city streets and transit trip planning is available through 511DFW. The system provides information in Spanish and English through mobile apps for Android, iOS devices, the 511DFW.org website and by dialing 511.
