The Regional Goods Movement Plan, completed in 2012, recommended a follow-up study to analyze supply chain connections between the region’s four deepwater ports and emerging markets without having to traverse the dense urban core. This need was also cited in previous TxDOT IH 69 corridor studies, the I-69 Advisory Committee report, and the TxDOT Texas Freight Mobility Plan.
After significant outreach with stakeholders and further coordination with port representatives, H-GAC issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) in May 2016 for the Ports Area Mobility Study. The purpose of the study is to better understand the supply chains linking the four deepwater ports in the area, and identify some locally approved improvement alternatives.
