AUSTIN - The Texas Transportation Commission has selected members to serve on two citizens’ Advisory Committees for the Trans-Texas Corridor.
Each committee will advise the Texas Department of Transportation in the planning of two priority corridors. One committee will focus on Interstate 35 corridor, and TTC-35 and the other committee will advise TxDOT on the proposed Interstate 69 corridor and I-69/TTC.
The Corridor Advisory Committees represent a cross-section of community and business leaders, land owners, local transportation experts and other interested parties. (A list of committee members is attached.)
"Our goal is to enhance the public dialogue and meaningfully involve more Texans in transportation decisions," said Texas Transportation Commission Chair Hope Andrade. "These committees will have an important seat at the table as we work together to shape the future of transportation for our state."
The committees will study and prepare reports on the impacts of corridor development, including economic, political, societal, population trends; the use of existing, new and upgraded facilities; road and rail solutions; and financing options.
Based on report findings, the committees will make recommendations to TxDOT's Executive Director and the Texas Transportation Commission on the development of these priority corridors.
The committees are expected to hold their first meetings this spring. Each committee is scheduled to serve through December 31, 2009.
Later this year, Corridor Segment Advisory Committees will be formed to specifically assist TxDOT in identifying a final route for segments of TTC-35 and I-69/TTC. The segment committees will be appointed by local entities.
