Dallas-Fort Worth’s Regional Transportation Council is scheduled to hear a presentation on the region’s air quality during a Jan. 11 meeting.

The gist

Staff from the North Central Texas Council of Governments are slated to present an hourlong workshop tying together air quality and transportation initiatives, according to the meeting agenda. Staff will highlight regional, state and federal efforts related to air quality, including ozone attainment status across the region.

The workshop will be composed of five different sections:
  • Update on the state implementation plan
  • Update on federal particulate matter standard
  • Results of greenhouse gas emission inventory
  • Dallas-Fort Worth Air Quality Improvement Plan
  • Federal highway greenhouse gas performance measures
The workshop comes after NCTCOG reported 50 exceedance days during the 2023 ozone season. One exceedance day means one or more air quality monitors in the region measured ozone levels averaging above 70 parts per billion, the federal standard.

Get involved

The council will meet at 1 p.m. Jan. 11 at 616 Six Flags Drive in Arlington. A livestream of the meeting is accessible via the council’s website.
