Energy Sector Task Force

In March 2012, TxDOT formed the Task Force on Texas' Energy Sector Roadway Needs to develop recommendations for addressing the state's energy-related infrastructure issues.

The task force was comprised of representatives from state agencies, local governments and the energy industry.

Task Force Responsibilities

One of the task force’s primary challenges was to identify innovative funding strategies for the unique road maintenance and repair needs of the energy sector regions. Additionally, the group focused on ways to raise public awareness around driver safety in these regions.

Over the course of a year, the task force gathered data from transportation partners around the state and held numerous meetings to assess the options. In December 2012, the group released a report to the Texas Transportation Commission outlining a number of recommendations for further discussion.
