The City of Balch Springs and the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) are hosting an online public engagement opportunity for all residents, visitors, and those employed in the City of Balch Springs to provide feedback on the Hickory Tree Road Planning Study. The plan will provide recommendations for relieving roadway congestion and increasing bicycle/walking access and safety along the roadway.
Participants will watch a video presentation of the project's activities and preliminary recommendations, review supporting illustrations, and complete a questionnaire to provide feedback about the content presented. The public engagement opportunity will be available online until late October and is hosted on the NCTCOG website.

Hickory Tree Road Online Survey & Stakeholder Meetings
The City of Balch Springs is conducting a planning study for roadway improvements on Hickory Tree Road from Bruton Rd to Elam Rd. Supporting this project, the NCTCOG is partnering with the City of Balch Springs to complete a corridor study of Hickory Tree Road, from Bruton Road to Elam Road (approx. 2 miles). The intent of this project is to support bicycle and pedestrian safety and access to destinations on the corridor, congestion relief, and economic development.
Plan recommendations will address pedestrian crossings, sidewalks and shared-use paths along the corridor, and roadway configurations. This plan additionally supports an existing Safe Routes to School funded project for Floyd Elementary on the study corridor.
Stakeholder meetings were held for residents and business owners/tenants on June 29 and June 30.
