Where:

The prerecorded virtual public meeting presentation will be available here on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at 12:00 p.m..

When:

Virtual Meeting:
Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at noon until Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 11:59 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting for the draft Texas Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan (Plan) which intends to create a comprehensive framework to enable passenger EV travel across the state and spur economic development. This Plan will provide EV drivers with the confidence and flexibility when traveling for work, recreation, or exploration regardless of the distance traveled or weather conditions. The virtual public meeting will include a pre-recorded presentation, and TxDOT encourages the public to provide comments. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

Description:

In accordance with the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program Guidance, the Plan focuses on building a nationwide network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030 that ensures a convenient, reliable, affordable and equitable charging experience for all users. The multi-year Plan will start development on the Electric Alternative Fuel Corridors and then work with rural/small urban areas and MPOs across the state.

Overall, the Plan intends to:

  • Expand Electric Alternative Fuel Corridors to include almost all non-business Interstate routes
  • Work with the private sector to install DC Fast Charge stations along Electric Alternative Fuel Corridors according to FHWA requirements
  • Work with Metropolitan Planning Organizations to identify suitable locations to install a combination of Level II and DC Fast Charging infrastructure inside large urban areas
  • Work with rural counties and small urban areas to install DC Fast Charge stations at or near county seats across the state
  • Collect data from the network to assess usage and identify trends for future development
