Mines Road project gets $3 million earmark

Gene Lindgren, LEDC President & CEO, was invited to attend a press conference hosted by Congressman Henry Cuellar at Laredo City Hall where the Congressman announced a $3 million earmark that will allow this crucial project to move forward.  The contribution was an important catalyst to close the funding gap for the $45.7 million that will provide an important relief route between Mines Road and IH-35.

The LEDC contributed to the advocacy efforts to fully fund the project with letters, calls, and meetings to elected officials at all levels and with TxDOT leadership.
