A study to determine the future transportation needs of the Blacklands Corridor is being expanded to include a lot more of the blacklands.
A public meeting has been scheduled next month to update the proposal, which now encompasses everything between Interstate 30 and U.S. Highway 380 between Greenville and Garland.
The Regional Transportation Council of the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has announced the expanded study area is approximately 35 miles long and 440 square miles and takes in a portion of the President George Bush Turnpike.
The Greenville City Council intends to take a vote Tuesday on whether to formally create the overlay zoning district which has been proposed for the Interstate 30 corridor. The vote is scheduled during Tuesday’s regular council agenda, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building.
