TxDOT, in collaboration and partnership with the Border Trade Advisory Committee (BTAC), worked with binational federal, state, regional, and private sector stakeholders to undertake development of the Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan (BTMP).
The BTMP is a comprehensive, multimodal, binational plan that identifies transportation issues, needs, challenges, and opportunities and strategies of moving people and goods across the border and in the border regions and beyond. The BTMP developed potential transportation investment strategies that support binational, state, regional, and local economic competitiveness.
Binational Regional Steering Committees - Stakeholder Outreach
The BTMP builds on the long-standing coordination and collaboration relationship between Texas and Mexico regarding binational planning, programming, and implementation of policies, programs, and projects to facilitate efficient and safe cross-border movement of people and goods. The BTMP builds on three regional border master plans developed between 2012 and 2013. The plans were for the following regions:
Therefore, the BTMP takes a holistic approach to border planning, developing one plan for the entire Texas-Mexico border, with the understanding that each border region is distinct and has unique geographic, trade, economic, and population characteristics.
