Northeast Texas Rural Transportation Summit

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The Sulphur Springs/Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation is hosting the second annual Northeast Texas Transportation Summit at the Hopkins County Civic Center on October 31st from 9 am to 4pm.  There will be three panel discussions on Freight Rail Service, Airports, and Freight Companies.  The afternoon will include breakout sessions where you will  be broken into counties and will collaboratively be able to give feed back to the Paris and Atlanta Districts of TXDOT.  The Keynote Luncheon Speaker is Glen Hagar State Comptroller.  He is going to discuss funding for roads at the State Level.   

The principle the goal of this Summit is to bring attention to our transportation needs in Northeast Texas.  Economic Development is dependent on our transportation system, roads, rail and air so having a discussion on how to identify the needs and how to get them funded is critical to our success in bringing quality jobs and investment to our communities.
