Board of Directors Meeting
2018 UTP Update
AGENDA ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Review the proposed TxDOT 2018 UTP update and consider the recommendation to send a letter to Texas Transportation Commission Chairman Bruce Bugg regarding the allocations, specifically the significantly low funding for Category 4-Rural and Category 12 in the San Antonio districts. - Diane Rath
The ARRPO has worked extensively the past ten years to assess our needs and prioritize our projects for the 10-20 year plan. Under the curent proposal, key initiatives have no funding. This includes Hwy 16 in Bandera County, US 87 in Wilson County and US 290 in Gillespie County. These regions have seen tremendous growth the past several years and have experienced significant transportation issues. The modification being considered by the Commission has only added IH 10 in Kendell County.
We would urge consideration of allocating additional amounts to address thise serious needs in Cat 4 Rural and Cat 12 in the San Antonio districts.
This item does not require a budget amendment and has a non-financial impact.
Staff recommends approval of sending the attached proposed letter to the Texas Transportation Commission Chairman Bruce Bugg. If you have any questions. please contact Diane Rath at
