The Texas Department of Transportation is planning for its Connecting Texas 2050 plan and is seeking the public’s input on recommendations for the state’s long-range transportation plan.

TxDOT will hold an in-person open house in McAllen from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 23 at the James “Nikki” Rowe High School Cafeteria located at 2101 N. Ware Road.

The state agency wants to know what priorities the public has for the future as the department works to develop the statewide long-range transportation plan.

Individuals attending the public meeting will learn about the process to prepare a statewide long-range transportation plan, share their visions for the future of transportation and provide input on their transportation goals and needs to help TxDOT plan for 2050, according to TxDOT.
