US-75/69 CORRIDOR TASK FORCE
The mission of the TEX-21 U.S. 75/69 Corridor Task Force is to improve, sustain, and advance the viability and position of the U.S. 75/69 Corridor as a preeminent national transportation corridor and to provide all Corridor stakeholders with the appropriate platform and cohesive vision to advocate on its behalf.
The TEX-21 U.S. 75/69 Corridor Task Force will bring together key stakeholders along the entire U.S. 75/69 Corridor in Texas and into Oklahoma tasked with the creation of a renewed focus on reinvigorating and greatly enhancing the commerce of transportation along one of the most dynamic and thriving corridors in the country. Through the results-driven, focused collaboration made possible by the leadership and expertise of TEX-21, the full potential of this Corridor can be realized at all levels.
TEX-21’s U.S 75/69 Corridor Task Force will pursue policies and infrastructure improvements along the Corridor that will better enable the safe, fast, and efficient movement of goods to and along the Corridor, thereby enhancing ongoing efforts to attract and retain world-class corporate residents to this growing region. By fostering and encouraging an informed and energized effort at the federal and state levels focused on the importance and potential of the U.S. 75/69 Corridor, the Corridor will be positioned to better provide for the mobility needs of the region’s corporate and residential citizens.
Through a coordinated effort of all stakeholders, the Task Force will identify and maximize available transportation assets and will position its members to attract further funding and available resources at the federal and state levels for the improvement of U.S. 75/69. The TEX-21 U.S 75/69 Corridor Task Force will seek to raise the status of U.S. Highway 75/69 to a Congressionally Designated High Priority Corridor, and eventually seek to include it as part of the U.S. Interstate Highway system, thereby qualifying it through both of these avenues for the additional funds and improvements which it deserves.
