Providing leadership to the region in the planning, funding,  
and development of a safe, efficient  multimodal transportation system.

TxDOT Freight Planning Permian Basin Traffic Management Strategies to Support Surface Freight

The Texas A&M Transportation Institute is conducting a survey for interested parties to provide feedback on the materials presented and ideas for improving freight mobility in the Permian Basin region. The survey is optional as well as all questions and should take 5-10 minutes to complete.

The City of Midland and Midland County have partnered to develop a comprehensive Safety Action Plan. The purpose of this Plan is tied directly to the local Vision Zero Plan which will identify and prioritize roadway safety projects aimed at significantly reducing and eliminating serious injuries and fatal crashes on Midland's streets and county roads. Important roadway safety projects will be identified through data analysis, public feedback, and with assistance from a Vision Zero task force. Projects will include safety improvements to roadways, intersections, sidewalk and bicycle infrastructure, lighting improvements, and more.

 

Thank you for your commitment for making safer streets for all roadway users in Midland. Let your voice be heard by leaving feedback on our online survey and interactive map activity today!
