The Sulphur Springs Hopkins County EDC and the ArkTex Council of Governments are hosting a Northeast Texas Rural Transportation Summit to be held on Wednesday, November 9 at the Hopkins County Civic Center.

The event is being held in an effort to discuss our region’s transportation needs and how best to meet them. Every city and county within the region has identified needed highway improvements including safety, increased capacity maintenance and design.

There are many factors limiting our region’s ability to build newer and better roads, with lack of funding topping the list.

Tickets for the event are $25 and include admission and lunch, and can be purchased from the Sulphur Springs EDC, or RSVP with them by calling 903/439-0101. Deadline for ticket purchase is November 4th The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Local elected officials, Paris and Atlanta area TxDOT representatives along with officials from TxDOT in Austin will discuss our region’s long-term transportation needs. State Senators and Representatives will also be making presentations.

The goal of this summit is to share communication with TxDot and the region the common goals for improving our roadways. Your input is valuable. During this event you will have the opportunity to speak directly with TxDOT officials and participate in a panel discussion with state officials from the Northeast part of the state.
