Texas Delivers 2050 Workshop

The LEDC promoted a recent TxDOT Texas Delivers 2050 workshop which was attended by several local stakeholders, including Gene Lindgren, LEDC President & CEO. We continue to advocate for infrastructure and mobility projects to improve mobility, reduce congestion, and mitigate safety risks, with the mission to further improve our port’s competitiveness and residents’ quality of life.  Several items were shared by Mr. Lindgren as a priority, including advocating for more equitable funding calculations for border communities, emphasizing the need to recognize our port as a state and national asset, and also advocating for specific project priorities such as IH-35 improvements, additional FM 1472 (Mines Road) and connector projects to ease congestion in Northwest Laredo, and the need for a direct connection between Laredo and Eagle Pass.
