Representatives from the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) updated the Collin County Commissioners Court on the agency's five-year plan that includes more than $1 billion in improvements and construction.

Commissioners welcomed NTTA officials at the court's September 23 meeting where they heard about the plan that would add 200 miles of road lanes including extensions to President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT), Dallas North Tollway (DNT), and Chisholm Trail Parkway.

Plans for DNT are to build an extension north to the Grayson County line in several phases. After completing a four-lane bridge currently under construction at U.S. 380, the NTTA will construct a four-lane tollway section from U.S. 380 to FM 428 in Celina. Once that section is finished, work will begin on another road section that goes to the Grayson County Line. Construction is estimated to cost $500 million and commence in 2025.

NTTA officials are preparing two extensions to the east and west sides of the Bush Turnpike. In Grand Prairie, a 5-mile tollway connection is planned between the PGBT and the 360 Tollway. Estimated project cost is $370 million. The other extension will carry the tollway from Interstate 30 south to Interstate 20 for a projected total of $1.2 billion.

Chisholm Trail Parkway will undergo $240 million in construction on two additional lanes from the Johnson County line to U.S. 67 and then widening from I-30 in Fort Worth to U.S. 67 in Alvarado.

NTTA officials said they are planning to conduct a $2 million DNT corridor study focusing on driver experience, traffic management, and safety improvements.
State, local government staff must be trained in cybersecurity by mid-2020
The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) is leading the state's effort to certify all state and local government employees and elected officials in cybersecurity training.

HB 3834 passed by the 86th Legislature requires all state and local employees and elected officials to annually complete the cybersecurity training.

Their first certification must occur by June 14, 2020.

At state agencies, employees who use a computer to complete at least 25 percent of their required duties and elected or appointed officers of the agency must complete the training. Local government employees, who have access to a local government computer system or database, and elected officials are required to be certified.

As part of the program, DIR officials will consult with the Texas Cybersecurity Council to certify at least five cybersecurity training programs. In order to be certified, a program must focus on forming information security habits and procedures that protect information resources and teach best practices for detecting, assessing, reporting, and addressing information security threats.

Local governments must use a certified training program, unless the local government employs a dedicated information resources cybersecurity officer and has a cybersecurity training program that satisfies the requirements.

DIR is accepting applications now through October 4 from programs to be included on the initial list. After certifying the five programs, DIR will publish them on its website. Applications submitted after this date will be assessed on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
Airlines adopting facial recognition technology for boarding at DFW
Facial recognition technology in use at DFW 
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has joined other airports around the country that have implemented facial recognition technology.

Two carriers at DFW started using facial technology this summer for boarding. One of the carriers plans to expand its use of the technology to 75 gates at DFW by the end of this year.

Facial recognition technology matches photos from passports and other forms of identification to photos taken at the airport gate. The system takes seconds to complete a scan because it only matches the person that it has scanned to other passengers on the same flight. Passengers may opt out of the scan by presenting boarding passes and passports. 

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is the primary user of facial technology at airports. Its goal is to have a "biometric exit" in place by 2022 to scan 97 percent of all passengers departing the U.S. 

Industry experts say the technology could be applied to check-ins at hotels and car rental facilities. Restaurants are starting to use facial recognition to remember frequent orders.
San Antonio ISD weighs bond vote
San Antonio ISD (SAISD) trustees and staff are discussing a bond election for November 2020 that would address, in part, over $2 billion in district infrastructure needs.

They have identified more than $1.3 billion in projects spread across 43 schools some of which were built more than three decades ago.

SAISD Superintendent Pedro Martinez said the district has never performed a comprehensive facility needs assessment, but whatever bond package is proposed would finance a portion of the needs that have been mounting over the years. Air conditioners at more than 40 district schools failed last month, and trustees have been approving millions of dollars in other emergency repairs.

Additional needs include major renovations to some campuses as well as upgrades to mechanical, electrical, plumbing and other systems at other schools.
USACE delays Water Supply Rule
The Trump administration is holding off on enacting a Water Supply Rule to charge state and local entities for drawing water from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reservoirs.

According to a September 23 memo, USACE will delay the Water Supply Rule for at least six months as it collects stakeholder input.

Eighteen U.S. Senators, including Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, and attorneys general from 12 western states sent letters to the Trump administration last month requesting the withdrawal of the proposal that they say usurps states' authority over their water.
Strategic Partnerships salutes Texas' Lone Stars
David Coatney, Agency Director, Texas A&M Extension Service (TEEX)

David Coatney
Career Highlights and EducationI  began my career in 1985 as a firefighter at the San Antonio Fire Department, and then became fire chief of the Round Rock Fire Department. But, I would have to say that being the fire chief of the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department was one of the highlights of my public safety career. The men and women of the organization are top notch and committed to providing the highest level of service to citizens and visitors. Now, as the agency director of TEEX, I'm honored to be in a position where I can have significant impact on how training across many disciplines is carried out, helping the next generation of public servants.

I hold a Masters in organizational management and a bachelor's degree in occupational education - both from Wayland Baptist University. I am enrolled at the Bush School of Government in the Executive Master of Public Service Administration (EMPSA) program.

What I like best about my public service is: Performing a role that is in the service to others - basically giving back and helping out those who have nowhere else to turn. Knowing that you made a difference in somebody's life, perhaps in saving a life, is certainly a compelling reason to be in public service.

The best advice I've received for my current job is: TEEX has a huge footprint across the globe. Last year, we trained nearly 195,000 people across 81 nations. I was told to remain flexible and that it will take a bit to get your head and arms wrapped around it - basically one day at a time.

Advice you would give a new hire in your office: Don't be afraid of change; in fact, embrace it. Also, if you have something to say, speak up. We all need to do a better job of listening and communicating together, regardless of your role in the organization.

If I had the opportunity to leave work early, I could probably be found: At home, doing homework.

People would be surprised to know that I: Have five children, four of whom are adults and one who is a high school student.

One thing I wish more people knew about the Texas Engineering Extension Service: How adaptive we are. TEEX is a large organization that is probably best known for the training we provide in the fields of firefighting, law enforcement, and public works. But, we also provide technical services in product innovation and testing, as well as training in economic development, cybersecurity, business efficiency and manufacturing, and workforce development.
Tomball City Hall
The city of Tomball is conducting a facility needs assessment, which rated five city buildings in its initial phase.

An architectural firm contracted by the city evaluated City Hall, public works administration building, public works service center, Central Fire Station, and Fire Station No. 2 on a 10-point scale.

The 45-year-old City Hall, which also serves as the police and municipal court building, scored a 4.5. Over the years, two expansions have been made to the City Hall building. Because it does not have enough space for administrative offices, some of the administration staff members work out of the public works building. Substandard energy efficiency, air circulation issues, accessibility deficiencies, and inadequate number of parking spaces added to the list of concerns.

The city's public works service center rated a 2 out of 10, the lowest of all five assessed buildings. Its small size forces multiple trips by heavy equipment and vehicles, which in turn wears down the city streets. The building is not in an industrial area, and it does not have a training room, conference room, locker room, or sprinkler system for fire suppression.

Central Fire Station earned a 4 out of 10. Double bays were identified as a need to aid in more efficient vehicle exits. Office space is at a premium, and the facility lacks a dedicated training room. Fire Station No. 2 scored 8 out of 10.

Tomball's public works building earned a 7 out of 10. The 15-year-old building is in need of a roof replacement and energy upgrades.

Consultants recommended that city staff and elected officials tour these five facilities next and then conduct site visits of peer facilities.
Austin Community College celebrates new incubator
Austin Community College (ACC) announced its third incubator on September 25 to bolster the city's $12.3 billion manufacturing industry.

More than one-third of Central Texas employers are manufacturers, but a lack of specialized facilities exists for start-up companies to grow and for students to gain skills.

A new IMPACT Lab at ACC Highland Phase 2 will provide specialized facilities to assist manufacturing start-up companies in developing prototypes and products. The facility also will support the college's manufacturing academic programs and provide internships in engineering technology, architectural and engineering computer-aided design, logistics, global supply chain management, and other fields.

The lab also will house a future ACC Manufacturing Academy developed in partnership with the Austin Regional Manufacturers Association. The academy will provide high school students with opportunities to complete dual credit courses and obtain industry certificates via hands-on experience at the facility.

Construction is set to begin immediately on the lab, which is scheduled to open in 2020, according to a news release. Once complete, it will join ACC's incubators for bioscience and fashion.
The city of Friendswood is nearing a $76.7 million bond election on November 5 that includes six propositions to address needs spanning several departments.

Friendswood's propositions are headed by the $41 million Proposition F to finance flood control and drainage projects along Clear Creek within the city. The city would use the funds to construct, acquire and install stormwater drainage and flood control improvements as well as dredge, make channel improvements, relocate utilities, and purchase land necessary to make these improvements.

If approved by voters, Proposition A would allow the city to issue $2 million in bonds for the design, construction, improvement, and expansion of the Municipal Public Works Facility on Blackhawk Boulevard. A section of the new facility would include an emergency shelter.

Proposition B would fund a $5 million expansion of the city's Public Safety Building and appropriate $4.1 million to upgrade fire training facilities and construct a new fire station to replace Station 2 on West Parkwood. Approval of Proposition C would finance the design and construction of a new $9 million community center with emergency shelter capabilities. 

Proposition D includes an estimated $7.6 million for transportation infrastructure improvements. Of that amount, $4.5 million would go toward the extension of Friendswood Parkway from FM 528 toward Pearland Parkway, $2.1 million would go to construction of new sidewalks, and $1 million would finance enhancements at the city's most congested intersections. 

Proposition E would dedicate $8 million to park improvements, including $4 million for the first phase of construction for a new pool at Stevenson Park. Other items in the proposition are $2 million in upgrades to Stevenson Park and Old City Park, $1.5 million in enhancements to Renwick Park, and $500,000 for Clear Creek Green Belt design improvements.
TxDOT developing long-range plan for state's transportation system 
The state's transportation department is developing the Texas Transportation Plan 2050 (TTP 2050), a long-range plan that will shape Texas' multimodal transportation system for the next 30 years.

Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) officials are hosting several public meetings across the state through October and conducting online surveys to collect input on the plan that will implement the goals of the 2019-2023 Strategic Plan and build on the existing work produced for the Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan 2040.

TTP 2050 also will summarize existing and future system conditions, needs, revenues, funding gaps, and supporting data sources for all modes.

According to its website, TxDOT will draft the plan by the end of the year and publish it for additional comment prior to a public hearing. TTP 2050 will be adopted by the Texas Transportation Commission as the policy document for the future of Texas transportation.
Texas A&M engineers researching autonomous driving systems
Researchers at the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) are setting forth on conducting studies on applications of Automated Driving Systems (ADS) in rural areas and multimodal environments.

The team, which also includes researchers from George Washington University and the University of California Davis, is embarking on an extensive data collection effort using Level 4 high-automation vehicles that are capable of finishing an entire journey without driver action.

One of the team's goals is to develop and test ADS for rural roads to operate without high-definition maps and with no or low-quality road signs and marking. According to a TEES grant application, most other ADS studies that focus on large cities are excluding 80 percent of the U.S. population that resides in rural areas or multimodal driving environments that include pedestrians and cyclists.

TEES was successful in securing a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to support this research. USDOT's Automated Driving System Demonstration Grants program provided a total of $60 million in federal funding to projects across the country that test how to safely incorporate automated driving systems on U.S. roads.
Lubbock MPO amasses $43.5M for portion of Loop 88 construction
Loop 88 Preferred Route Option
The Lubbock Metropolitan Planning Organization (LMPO) has secured $43.5 million in funding for construction of a portion of Loop 88 from Highway 87 to Quincy Avenue.

State transportation commissioners appropriated $33.5 million for the third phase of construction on Loop 88. LMPO will contribute $10 million to the project. 

Organizers said construction should begin in 2021 on the project that will be divided into six sections along a 7-mile stretch.  

State transportation officials said they are developing environmental documents for the other Loop 88 sections. The entire Loop 88 project is estimated to cost $1 billion to $2 billion.
Rockport considers selling gas utility
Rockport councilmembers are considering the sale of the city's natural gas utility.

Facing a regulatory challenge from the Texas Railroad Commission that could require significant improvements, city leaders discussed selling all or part of the utility at a recent council meeting.

Repeated state fines combined with the cost replacing miles of cast iron pipe have resulted in losses for the utility. Staff also are stretched to the limit locating 15 to 25 buried gas lines per day for many post-Hurricane Harvey construction projects. Before the storm, the department averaged three to four lines per day.

City Manager Kevin Carruth told councilmembers that the city would need to contract a consultant if it were to pursue a sale. If the city decides to retain the utility, Carruth forecasts significant rate increases over the next five years.
Alamodome preparing for Final Four tournament with $14M in upgrades
The city of San Antonio is planning nearly $21 million in improvements to the Alamodome and Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center as the venues prepare to host the NCAA Final Four tournament in 2025.

More than $14 million in projects is planned for the Alamodome in 2020 as part of the city's six-year capital improvement plan that includes the center.

Planners have identified replacing the stadium's automatic retractable seating for $13.5 million as a priority improvement for 2020. The seating is 27 years old and no longer functions automatically.

An additional $5.76 million is being sought for construction of additional interior suites, upgrades to the stadium's fifth level, and improvements to ADA accessibility. Alamodome officials also are requesting $3.8 million to replace elevators and escalators.

More upgrades are being proposed for the convention center, including $3 million to replace part of that facility's roof damaged last year by storms. An estimated $900,000 is needed to replace escalators and elevators at the center.

State water board to consider multi-millions in infrastructure loans 

Members of the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) will consider requests for several multi-million dollar loans to finance water and wastewater projects at their October 3 board meeting.

The city of Austin is seeking a $67.83 million loan from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for construction of water system improvements at its North Austin Reservoir and Ullrich Pump Station that are at the end of their useful lives.

Staff members are planning to decommission the reservoir's existing infrastructure and construct a new facility that will include a new 8 million-gallon ground storage tank and pump station. A new electrical building would be built at the pump station site. 

Austin officials also are seeking a $53 million loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to make improvements to its Walnut Creek and South Austin Regional wastewater treatment plants, which they stated have reached end of life. Upgrades to the two facilities will improve system efficiency and reliability and reduce maintenance costs.

The city is proposing to upgrade the existing sludge thickener at the Walnut Creek plant and replace an electrical substation at South Austin Regional. 

San Angelo leaders are requesting a $65.75 million loan from TWDB for the expansion of the city's groundwater supply at the Hickory Aquifer by upgrading multiple locations, including construction of five new wells at its wellfield.

Texas wins award for program to immunize emergency responders

Texas recently won a 2019 Vision Award for its successful effort to increase immunizations among emergency responders.

The Texas Department of State Health Services received the award from the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials at its annual meeting in Bethesda, Maryland. The program was judged on its innovation, effectiveness and replicability.

The response to Hurricane Harvey in 2017 confirmed the results of an earlier study that many responders don't think about the need for vaccines until after they're deployed and working in a disaster area. Receiving vaccines at that point does not provide immediate protection, and the delay puts them at risk of acquiring infections like tetanus and hepatitis B.

The program provides tools for local health departments to work with the emergency responder organizations within their communities to designate an immunization coordinator and provide training, educational materials and resources for accessing immunization services. Emergency response organizations may include fire departments, police departments, EMS service providers, the Texas State Guard, volunteer organizations, and church organizations.
