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.
