Statewide series of open-house meetings will address future transportation needs, solutions
AUSTIN — Beginning Monday, the Texas Department of Transportation will host a series of 25 statewide public meetings to welcome citizens’ feedback on a long-range plan for the state’s future transportation needs.
The Texas Transportation Plan (TTP) 2040 will define TxDOT’s long-range goals for all transportation modes — roadways, transit, rail, ports, aviation, pedestrian, bicycle and freight. The plan also will address the state’s aging infrastructure and offer solutions for managing and prioritizing transportation funding and assets.
An interactive investment tool and exhibits outlining the statewide initiative will be presented at each meeting. Participants are invited to ask questions and provide written comments on the direction of the plan, which is scheduled to be completed and ready for public hearing and adoption by the Texas Transportation Commission this fall.
Residents in Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Rains and Red River counties can attend a TTP 2040 public meeting from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. June 25 in Room 205 of the McLemore Student Center at Paris Junior College (2400 Clarksville Street). A statewide schedule of meetings and related information can be found here or at www.txdot.gov by searching for TTP 2040.
