I-10 Texas Corridor Study
TxDOT works to deliver a safe, reliable and integrated transportation system. The Interstate 10 (I-10) Corridor is one of Texas’ busiest and most important highways. Approximately 880 miles of I-10 span the state, connecting cities and communities and providing a pathway for continued economic prosperity.
In keeping with population growth, increasing traffic, and the state’s booming economy, the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Transportation Planning and Programming Division (TPP) is conducting a study of the entire I-10 corridor from the New Mexico State line to the Louisiana State line.
The I-10 Corridor Study will examine currently planned transportation projects, analyze safety, connectivity, and mobility concerns, as well as identify short-, medium-, and long-term improvements to address the needs of the corridor.
The study will consider the following key elements to identify and prioritize proposed projects along the corridor:
- Mobility & CongestionCosts & Funding
- Truck Parking
- Multimodal Passenger & Freight
- Alternative Routes & Resiliency
- Operations & Maintenance
- Asset Preservation
Input collected from stakeholders, both public and private, throughout the study will be important to help TxDOT identify transportation needs and prioritize projects to improve safety, connectivity, and mobility along the I-10 corridor.
Key stakeholders include:
- TxDOT district and division representatives
- A steering committee
- Three regional working groups –
- West – Texas/New Mexico State line to the Pecos/Crockett County line
- Central – Pecos/Crockett County line to the Caldwell/Gonzales County line
- East – Caldwell/Gonzales County line to the Texas/Louisiana State line
- Two industry groups - the energy sector industry and trucking, freight, and economic development organizations
- Travelers and other members of the public
The public will have the opportunity to provide input through the development of the study.
