I-20 East Texas Corridor Study

The I-20 East Texas Corridor Study, completed in December 2014, focused on evaluating the current safety and capacity needs along the 155-mile stretch of I-20 from I-635 in Dallas to the Texas/Louisiana state line.

The I-20 corridor currently serves as an integral east-west connection for both travel and trade in Texas. As the interstate system ages and trade increases, identifying opportunities for improvement becomes more critical. Assessing the current corridor conditions and identifying future growth potential are important to ensuring this route meets the needs of the region for decades to come.

I-20 East Texas Corridor Advisory Committee

An integral component of this study is to work directly with public and private stakeholders through an advisory committee. The I-20 East Texas Corridor Advisory Committee was established in August 2013 by the Texas Transportation Commission to assist TxDOT in assessing the rural transportation needs along I-20 by providing locally focused input and recommendations. This group currently comprises 21 elected officials and other stakeholders along the I-20 corridor and includes representatives from:

  • Dallas County
  • Gregg County
  • Harrison County
  • Kaufman County
  • Smith County
  • Van Zandt County
  • City of Balch Springs
  • City of Canton
  • City of Forney
  • City of Lindale
  • City of Longview
  • City of Marshall
  • City of Mesquite
  • City of Seagoville
  • City of Terrell
  • City of Tyler
  • Dallas Area Rapid Transit
  • North Central Texas Council of Governments
  • North East Texas Regional Mobility Authority
  • Longview Metropolitan Planning Organization
  • Tyler Metropolitan Planning Organization

In addition to the members of the committee there are several collaborating partners who will provide input at appropriate times during the process and are invited to all working group meetings. The collaborative partners include:

  • Farm Bureau
  • Native American Tribes
  • Economic Development Organizations
  • Private Businesses Interests
  • Rural Planning Organizations
  • Freight Rail and Passenger Rail Interest Groups
