Future Interstate Highway

On Tuesday, March 15, 2022, President Biden signed the FY 2022 Omnibus Appropriations legislation. This legislation included the designation of the entire Ports-to-Plains Corridor in Texas and New Mexico as a Future Interstate Highway. The Alliance and its partners continue efforts to obtain highway construction funding for both the Future Interstate and expansion to four-lanes along the entire corridor.

Ports-to-Plains System in Texas

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) continues to move forward in developing and implementation strategy and plan to develop the Future Interstate Highway. While the I-27 Advisory Committee will provide the department with information on concerns and interests along the Ports-to Plains Corridor, and will advise the department on transportation improvements impacting the Ports-to-Plains Corridor, TxDOT is gathering information on the Ports-to-Plains System in Texas. YOUR INPUT IS IMPORTANT. TxDOT needs to hear from all the segments along the Texas Corridor.
