The TxDOT El Paso District is developing a Corridor Plan for 142 miles of US 67, from I-10 west of Fort Stockton to the Presidio/Ojinaga Port of Entry on the U.S./Mexico border. US 67 provides access to the towns of Marfa, Alpine, Presidio and surrounding communities, as well as Big Bend National Park, Sul Ross State University, the Marfa Lights, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Fort Leaton State Park, and Fort Davis attractions. It serves multiple communities with diverse needs and priorities. This rural area has experienced signficant growth in recent years, and TxDOT is undertaking a corridor study to help determine the current and future transportation needs to best serve the communities along US 67.
TxDOT wants to be proactive in planning for a safe and efficient corridor.
The US 67 Corridor has experienced increasing traffic driven by many factors, including population growth, additional tourism and special events, international commerce and Permian Basin oilfield development.
This has led to a number of safety and transportation issues. For example, from 2010 to 2016, there were more than 600 crashes along the corridor, including 100 injury crashes and 11 fatal accidents.
The US 67 Corridor Master Plan will identify current and future needs along US 67, and provide a set of recommended projects for short-, medium-, and long-term implementation.
TxDOT is planning extensive public outreach, including smaller working groups and public meetings at major study milestones. To develop the best plan, we need your input. We will provide multiple avenues for ongoing public engagement to ensure the plan incorporates the needs and concerns of local communities and provides appropriate recommendations.
TxDOT will work with local communities and public officials to get ideas on how the public involvement effort will proceed and to understand corridor needs based on input from the communities.
The study will follow a process defined in close consultation with corridor communities and focus group members.
Given the diverse nature of the corridor, effective communication and engagement will be conducted throughout the study effort.
The first round of public meetings were conducted in May 2018 and the second round of public meetings were conducted during the first and second weeks of November 2018.
