Statement of Gov. Rick Perry on Trans Texas Corridor
AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement on the decision by the Texas Transportation Commission to accept the proposal of Cintra, an international group of engineering, construction and financial firms, for construction of the first segment of the Trans Texas Corridor from Mexico to Oklahoma.
"Today's action by the Texas Transportation Commission will go down as one of the most significant days in the history of transportation. Three years ago next month, I presented the most visionary transportation plans this state has ever seen. Not only will the proposal presented by Cintra move the Trans Texas Corridor from concept to reality, it likely will forever change the way we build roads in Texas."
