TxDOT Holding Conversation On Priorities




The hearing is Thursday (Jul 21) at 9:00 am in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, 310 W. Panola Street, Carthage.

AUSTIN — The Texas Department of Transportation is hosting a meeting to gather input on priorities for future road improvements within the energy sector. It is having a conversation with area stakeholders and community leaders in energy-producing areas regarding their transportation needs and priorities. The department will consider targeting up to $1.8 billion of priority road improvements in energy-producing areas where heavy truck traffic degrade roads as a result of oil and gas production.

To date, TxDOT has invested $1.5 billion and rehabilitated 955 miles of roadways in energy-producing areas; repaired 899 miles of pavement; added or rebuilt 221 miles of shoulders; improved eight intersections, and widened 928 miles of narrow lanes.
