How is the project funded?

A combination of city funds and a $12 million grant from the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) through its fiscal agent the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) will provide the advance funding for the reconstruction of Irving Boulevard from Sowers Road to Strickland Plaza.

This grant will allow for advanced funding to begin the Irving Boulevard Reconstruction. Per the terms of the Interlocal Agreement (ILA), the City of Irving will contribute funds to NCTCOG if and when funds are available in the TIF fund. Contributions from the City of Irving to RTC, via NCTCOG, for the grant are outlined within the ILA between the two entities.
