Public invited to comment on TxDoT’s Transportation Plan

El Pasoans and residents from around the county are invited to comment on the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Unified Transportation Plan (UTP).

“Public comment is critical for planning across the state, but especially important in the El Paso District. We are the largest geographical TxDOT district, spanning 21,700 square miles, said TxDOT Director of Transportation Planning and Development Eddie Valtier, P.E. “The needs of our district vary – not only because of our dual urban/rural characteristics, but also because of the varying geographical characteristics across our six counties.”

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 11, starting at 3 p.m. at TxDOT El Paso District Headquarters 13301 Gateway Boulevard West.

The Unified Transportation Program (UTP) is TxDOT’s ten-year programming document to authorize and guide transportation project development and construction on Texas’ intermodal transportation network. It is updated, and adopted by the Texas Transportation Commission annually.

The UTP includes funding strategies and projects to maintain and preserve the existing transportation system and taxpayer investments. The UTP also includes funding strategies and projects to construct transportation infrastructure.

The UTP is neither a budget nor a guarantee that projects will or can be built. However, it is a critical tool in guiding transportation project development within the long-term planning context.

Members of the public interested in participating, but not able to attend the meeting in person, have the opportunity to join the meeting online, by phone or provide their comments via mail
