Take TxDOT I-20 Survey by Dec. 10

DALLAS, TX – As part of the statewide I-20 Texas Corridor Study, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is requesting public input through an online survey through December 10, 2021.

The survey asks respondents to weigh in on their transportation priorities for I-20, their points of interest along the corridor, and issues or opportunities that should be addressed. Findings and recommendations from the study will be used to help guide the future of the I-20 Corridor so now is the time for Kaufman County residents to be heard!

To access the survey, go to https://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/projects/studies/statewide/i20-corridor-study.html and click the link on the project page. The survey is available in Spanish and English.

Kaufman County, fortunately is strongly represented at the table as County Judge Hal Richards serves as chair for the I-20 Corridor Working Group, Central Section, which represents 22 counties along the corridor. This survey will assist the Central Working Group and TxDOT in their efforts to study the Interstate from state line to state line.

“Transportation planning begins years, if not decades, in advance of construction, so what we say today, will matter decades from now,” said Judge Richards. “Because growth in Kaufman County is exploding, we will, more than ever before, rely on Interstate 20 to carry people, goods and services to our county. We need to make our voices be heard.”

TxDOT’s Freight, Trade, and Connectivity Section of the Transportation Planning and Programming Division is conducting the I-20 Texas Corridor Study to identify multimodal needs and prioritize improvements that facilitate the movement of people and goods from east to west Texas. The study area spans along I-20 from the I-10 junction in Reeves County to the Texas/Louisiana state line, a distance of 635 miles.

“This is the first time TxDOT has taken a comprehensive look at the whole I-20 corridor. I-20 is one of the primary east-west travel and trade routes in Texas,” Caroline Mays, Director of Freight, Trade and Connectivity Section at TxDOT. “As part of the study process, TxDOT wants input from people who live and work near I-20. This survey is an opportunity for the public to give us their input about what should be addressed in the study recommendations.” 

The link to the survey is also available on the County’s website at www.kaufmancounty.net until December 10, 2021. County residents may also send additional comments and concerns to info@kaufmancounty.net.
