MAKE US 67 BETTER
You are invited to the first set of US 67 Corridor Master Plan Public Meetings, hosted by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in partnership with the communities in the Transpecos Region.
We need your input, your insight, and your comments. /Join us at the Open House meeting designed to provide the communities with an opportunity to help shape the future of transportation along the US 67 corridor. /The corridor stretches 142 miles from Interstate 10 west of Fort Stockton to the Presidio/Ojinaga Port of Entry on the US/Mexico border. The US 67 study corridor has experienced increased traffic driven by many factors including population growth, additional tourism and special events, international commerce, and Permian Basin oil field development. The US 67 Corridor Master Plan will identify current and future needs along US 67, and provide a set of recommended projects for short-, mid-, and long-term implementation.
