REGIONAL MOBILITY PLAN
Date
Rio Grande Valley Mobility Plan
Need for Plan
•
Traditional funding won’t address needs, and
current plans don’t identify all regional needs.
•
Competition for additional funding is tough
without a single documented plan supported
by all.
•
RGV is at a disadvantage without one.
•
There is a perception that the RGV is not
united in regional priorities.

Focuses on regional needs.
•
Is needs based (not financially constrained).
•
Documents valley-wide support of regional priorities.
•
Supports local delegations in pursuing
additional funding.
•
Builds on previous success of past RMPs.

Merging of the Three Valley MPOs

Reasons for TxDOT Initiative:
•
Region will have ONE voice, providing a much greater opportunity for
funding regional-type projects (i.e. FM 1925).
•
Single regional MPO for the Valley would have almost 1.1 million
people in the urbanized area and rank as the fifth largest in the
state by population, following D-FW, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin.
•
TxDOT Commission and Administration have urged local officials in the
past to consider merging the MPOs, most notably at the 9/26/2013 TxDOT
Commission meeting held in McAllen.
•
A single regional MPO would be able to identify regional-type projects
needed to address the following major developments:
Space X, 2nd Access, Mazatlan-Matamoros Mexican Superhighway,
Mexican oil/gas privatization, UT-RGV, Interstates.
•
One set of planning documents, (TIP, MTP, etc.) for the region instead
of three separate ones.
