The four Priority Corridors are
described as being built (1) parallel to I-35/I-37 and the
proposed I-69 from near Denison to the Rio Grande Valley; (2)
along the path of I-69 from Laredo around Houston to near
Texarkana; (3) parallel to I-45 from the Dallas-Fort Worth area
to Houston; and, (4) parallel to I-10 from near El Paso to near
Orange. These four Priority Corridors alone total 4,000 miles.
Together with the additional corridor routes identified in the
Crossroads of the Americas: The
Trans Texas Corridor Plan the corridors could total 8,000
miles or more.
The Priority TTC
Corridors are commonly known as: TTC-35, TTC-69, TTC-10 &
None of the corridor routes have
ever been defined by the Legislature. Neither has the
Legislature established any limits on size such as length or
width. State Law establishing the Trans Texas Corridor (House
Bill 3588) granted the Texas Transportation Commission
complete authority to designate any existing or future facility
as the Trans Texas Corridor.
