CAMPO seeks input on highway funding

Friday, October 9, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization – otherwise known as CAMPO – will be kicking off a series of public events next week to gather input on how to spend $96 million in state funding for transportation improvements. The money comes from a portion of oil and gas tax revenues that Texas voters decided, in November 2014, should go to the State Highway Fund. Now it’s time to figure out what highway projects in the Central Texas region most deserve that funding. The first meeting will be a public hearing on Monday, Oct. 12, at 6 p.m., at the Thompson Center on the University of Texas campus. Several community meetings will follow in the weeks to come. People may also give feedback through an online survey or by email (, regular mail (CAMPO, P.O. Box 1088, Austin, TX, 78767), phone (512-974-2529) or fax (512-974-6385). The deadline for public comments is Nov. 6, 5 p.m.
