Hidalgo County Commissioners Court approved a resolution honoring the members of the Texas Transportation Commission for their continued emphasis and support of improving the transportation projects. Hidalgo County and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has had a mutually-beneficial relationship that has resulted in many joint transportation projects that have served to promote trade and commerce that benefit the residents of Hidalgo County. Most recently, TxDOT played an instrumental role in achieving federal highway designation for Interstate 69 Central and Interstate 2 in Hidalgo County, as well as in the development of State Highway 68. The Texas Department of Transportation is governed by the five-member Texas Transportation Commission and an executive director. The Commission is comprised of Chair Ted Houghton, Commissioner Jeff Austin III, Commissioner Jeff Moseley, Commissioner Fred Underwood, and Commissioner Victor Vandergriff, and TxDOT's Executive Director Phil Wilson. The Commission held its September meeting on Thursday September 26, 2013 at 9:00 am at the McAllen Convention Center and toured local transportation projects as well as international ports of entry to view the first-hand the needs of our area.

Hidalgo County Commissioners Court welcomes the Texas Transportation Commission members to South Texas and wishes them a productive visit and thanks them for their continued emphasis and support on improving the transportation needs in Hidalgo County, across South Texas, and throughout the State of Texas.
