Purpose:

The purpose of the meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to learn about the Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan (BTMP) and provide input on needs, challenges, and opportunities for moving people and goods across the border and within the border region.

Description:

TxDOT, in collaboration and partnership with the Border Trade Advisory Committee, is working with U.S. and Mexican agencies and stakeholders to update 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, air, rail, ports and waterways.

The plan will analyze current and future transportation and will include a prioritized list of transportation investment strategies that improves the efficient movement of people and goods across the border and supports binational, state, regional and local economic competitiveness.

TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The meeting will be in English; however, materials will be available in Spanish and an interpreter will be present.

Please call (512) 685-2955 at least 5 working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
