TxDoT invites residents to Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan meeting

Community members from around the El Paso area are invited to participate in TxDOT’s Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan (BTMP) meeting this week.

The master plan will identify the cross-border challenges of moving people and goods and will include analysis of existing transportation systems — roadway, transit, pedestrian, pipeline, air, rail, ports and waterways.

During the session, attendees will discuss the BTMP goals and objectives, review the data collection received to-date, and gather insight on transportation issues/opportunities in the El Paso region.

In 2017, Texas traded approximately $187.5 billion with Mexico, more than three times the amount that Texas trades with China, the state’s second largest trading partner.

The BTMP will analyze current and future transportation and will include a prioritized list of transportation investment strategies that improves the efficient movement of people and goods across the border and supports binational, state, regional and local economic competitiveness.

Those not able to attend the public meeting can learn more and also submit comments online by clicking here.

The public meeting will be held from 5-7  p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 at the Double Tree by Hilton El Paso Downtown/City Center, located at 600 North El Paso St.

The final BTMP report is expected in December 2020.
