EL PASO –– The Texas Department of Transportation is currently seeking public input on the entire Texas corridor of U.S. 90, which stretches across Texas for more than 760 miles from I-10 in Van Horn to the Louisiana state line. The “West Segment” of the corridor study begins at I-10 in Van Horn and ends at the Terrell/Val Verde county line.
The department launched an online survey on September 29 which will remain open to public input through November 3.
The survey, part of TxDOT’s U.S. 90 Texas Corridor Study, will give Texans an important voice in shaping the future of U.S. 90 and the many communities it serves. The corridor study is looking for ways to keep up with the state’s growing population, increasing traffic and booming economy, per the department.
The study examines currently planned transportation projects and analyzes additional safety, connectivity, bottlenecks and other mobility needs along U.S. 90 in Texas. The results of the survey will help TxDOT identify potential improvement needs and prioritize plans, policies, programs, and projects.
To identify and prioritize projects within the study, TxDOT plans to take into account safety, mobility and congestion, system connectivity and multimodal passenger and freight.
