2025 2028 Rural Transportation Improvement Program
Paris District

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Paris District will conduct an online virtual public meeting for the 2025 2028 Rural Transportation Improvement Program (Rural TIP). The purpose of this meeting is to provide information and receive comments on which transportation projects may be coming to your area. The Paris District includes Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Rains, and Red River counties.

The Rural TIP includes all added capacity and regionally significant projects to be funded within a TxDOT District during the next four years, including those eligible for federal funding. As such, this meeting offers the public an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed priorities.

The Rural TIP is the first step on the road to producing a Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
