The Texas Department of Transportation unveiled new construction plans for a busy section on Loop 12 Northwest Highway on Monday. The possible plans involved a tunnel or overhead bypass highway, reported NBC DFW.

The specific area that is being looked at is between Inwood Road and Hillcrest Avenue, and the options would speed up traffic in the area. Both major options would bypass Preston Center and the Dallas North Tollway.

More inexpensive options are also being evaluated, and the virtual presentation can be viewed until Dec. 22 at 11:59 p.m here

Currently, TxDOT is looking for resident input on the options. Individuals can call 214-320-4469 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to ask questions and written comments can be submitted to stephen.endres@txdot.gov. Residents can also leave a voice mail at 833-933-0437 or can mail comments here:
