The purpose of the meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to learn about the Ports-to-Plains Corridor Feasibility Study and provide input on needs, challenges, and opportunities for moving people and goods across the State of Texas.


The 86th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 1079 to study the Ports-to-Plains Corridor, including an evaluation of the feasibility of, and the costs and logistical matters associated with improvements that create a continuous flow, four-lane divided highway that meets interstate highway standards to the extent possible, including improvements that extend Interstate 27 between the New Mexico and Oklahoma borders and Laredo. The Ports-to-Plains Corridor has been divided into three “segments” as shown on the Segment Map. This public meeting will focus on Segment 1 from the New Mexico and Oklahoma borders to the Hale/Lubbock County Line.
