A follow-up meeting set to take place Tuesday on mobility corridors in Northeast Midland will allow citizens to further discuss the transportation needs they see in that area as it continues to grow.
The public is invited to attend a town hall meeting on the Northeast Corridor Feasibility Study at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at the Hispanic Cultural Center of Midland, 1311 E. Wadley, next to Sibley Nature Center at Hogan Park. The meeting will start with an open house session at 5:30 p.m. followed by a presentation at 6 p.m. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts on transportation planning and concepts as they relate to Northeast Midland.
The study is a result of partnership between the City of Midland and the Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization in order to define a common vision for the transportation network in Northeast Midland. As the transportation network in the study area is still in its initial phases and Loop 250 is currently incomplete, the study is focused on the immediate local area network for now with an eye toward potential regional needs supported within this framework as the area develops.
The area of study includes parts of Midland and Martin counties, generally bound by County Road 2600 to the north, FM 1208 to the east, Interstate 20, Business 20 and Northeast Loop 250 to the south, and Highway 349 to the west. Along the south, the study area will extend an additional half mile in order to incorporate supporting connections with the north-south roadway network.
The City of Midland retained Freese and Nichols, Inc. for the development of this study.
