During the development of the Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan (BTMP), TxDOT hosted a series of meetings throughout the border region to gather public input on capacity and operational improvements to the existing multimodal transportation infrastructure. Now, the public is invited to review and provide comments on the draft BTMP.
TxDOT, in collaboration and partnership with the Border Trade Advisory Committee, is working with U.S. and Mexican agencies and stakeholders to develop the BTMP. The master plan will identify the cross-border challenges of moving people and goods and will include analysis of existing transportation systems — roadway, transit, pedestrian, pipeline, airport, maritime and rail. The plan will analyze current and future transportation and will include a prioritized list of transportation investment strategies that support binational, state, regional and local economic competitiveness and improve the impacts of cross-border trade and transportation.
All comments may be submitted by mail or email and must be postmarked by Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. CST.
