Board to hear toll road update

A panel helping to oversee proposed transportation projects in Northeast Texas is scheduled to receive an update this week on the proposed toll road between Greenville and Lavon.

The board of the Sulphur River Regional Mobility Authority (SuRRMA) is set to meet at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Cooper City Hall, on the north side of the downtown square in Cooper.

Among the items on the agenda is a recap of July 25 public meeting in Lavon, during which the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) Regional Transportation Council announced the start of a transportation study of the area between Lavon and Greenville.

Danny Duncan of Commerce and W. D. Hilton of Greenville are the Hunt County members of the SuRRMA, which represents Hunt, Delta, and Lamar counties.

 In early 2007, the commissioners courts in all of the counties filed a petition before the Texas Transportation Commission, seeking the formation of the SuRRMA, which was officially made operational as of Jan. 15, 2007, the charter date under the state resolution authorizing the formation of the agency.
