Railroad Commission of Texas
In the mid 1990’s, elected officials and civic leaders in Lubbock, Texas wanted to improve U.S. 87/287 to the north and south of U.S. Interstate 27 between Lubbock and Amarillo, Texas. The goal: to capture the economic benefits of trade along north and south corridors to support increasing trade opportunities. Today, there are three federally designated High Priority Corridors on the National Highway System of the Ports-to-Plains Alliance. Collectively, the U.S. corridors traverse through more than 2,300 miles.
