North East Texas Rural Transportation Summit Bowie, Camp, Cass, Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Morris, Rains, Red River, Titus, Wood One thing Northeast Texans have in common is the dependence on improved transportation for our rural area.

Each city and county in the region has identified needed highway improvements such as safety concerns, increased capacity, maintenance or improved design to meet the changing needs in our region. It is important to understand not only the need for new roads or added capacity, but also how freight shipping by truck, rail and air play an important role, as well as where passenger rail opportunities may be needed.  Communication is vital in identifying our primary transportation needs.

In an effort to help us meet the common goal of improving our region’s roadways, Sulphur Springs/Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation is hosting the 3rd annual Northeast Texas Rural Transportation Summit on Thursday, November 1st, at the Hopkins County Civic Center, 1200 Houston St., in Sulphur Springs, Texas. Tickets to this invitation-only event are $25 and include admission plus a catered lunch. TxDOT Chief Engineer Bill Hale will be our keynote speaker; invited attendees and speakers include District and Area Engineers from TxDOT, local elected officials and area business and industry leaders.

During this event, attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly with TxDOT officials, hear from other subject matter experts in transportation, and hear about state priorities and plans as we move forward. Working together in finding solutions to these challenges is the key to reaching our goal.
