2045 Regional Transportation Plan - Public Meetings Scheduled
In the year 2045, our region will have an integrated multimodal transportation system, achieved through coordinated public and private investments, that supports a desirable quality of life, enhanced economic vitality and increased safety, access and mobility.

To realize this vision, H-GAC, transportation agencies, local governments, and residents must work together to ensure that long-range transportation plans reflect the region's needs and desires.

Opportunities to participate in Public Meetings are fast approaching. We want to hear your thoughts on how best to prepare and plan for the years ahead.
