To NAFTA Highway Sceptics - from TX DOT websiteSubmitted by mlummus on Tue, 01/15/2008 - 15:02
From Texas Department of Transportation website:
"On November 13, the Texas Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration, released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed I-69/Trans-Texas Corridor project.
"Using existing highways will be the first consideration as state transportation officials continue work to identify an alignment for I-69/TTC from far South Texas to Northeast Texas.
"The Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor is a proposed divided highway corridor stretching from Laredo through West Texas to Denver, Colorado. Designated as a High Priority Corridor by Congress in 1998, the Ports-to-Plains corridor will facilitate the efficient transportation of goods and services from Mexico, through West Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado and ultimately on into Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Together, the communities along the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor are becoming the gateway to trade throughout the nation and with Mexico and Canada."
