In what appears to be a contradiction with Texas House Speaker Joe Straus' announcement that his next budget will end all un-constitutional gas tax diversions to ensure taxes collected for roads indeed go to roads, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Executive Director Joe Weber recently signaled the need to depart from highway-only funding to use road taxes for rail.
Weber told the Dallas Morning News that "it's going to take more than new roads to keep Texans traveling smoothly if population growth estimates prove true."
He also said TxDOT needs to increase funding for rail projects despite an environment where road dollars are already scarce.

Bay Tran welcomes General Joe Weber, the new Executive Director of the Texas Department of Transportation. In late April, the Texas Transportation Commission voted unanimously to hire Joe Weber, a Texas A&M University official and former military leader, as the new executive director of the TxDOT. Since 2008, Weber has worked as A&M's Vice President for Student Affairs. Before that, he was Commander of U.S. Marine Corps Forces Command, which involved overseeing more than 70,000 Marines and sailors. From 2004 to 2005, he served as Chief of Staff of the Multinational Force Iraq based in Baghdad. BayTran looks forward to working with General Weber.

Lieutenant General Weber was born in Weimar, Texas in 1950 and is a 1972 graduate of Texas A&M University. Immediately upon graduation, he began his 36 years of service to the nation as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps. Over the course of an extensive military career, the General served in assignments throughout the United States and overseas, commanding at all levels and serving in a wide variety of senior staff positions. His primary duties focused on the training, education and readiness of thousands of service members and civilians as well as the responsibility for their health, welfare and overall quality of life, and that of their family members. He has broad experience working with the interagency as well as a multitude of foreign military and diplomatic representatives and agencies world-wide.
A strong desire to continue to serve, coupled with the satisfaction gained over a long career of addressing the needs and aspirations of young, dedicated men and women would eventually steer this Marine back to Texas A&M University in August 2008 to serve as Vice President for Student Affairs. A deep understanding and appreciation for the established Aggie traditions of the past, balanced with the necessity for new Aggie traditions for the future, permit the General to be most comfortable in his new setting and in dealing with the tasks at hand. General Weber will be providing an update to the current activities at the University.
The way Joe Weber sees it, ..., 19 May 2014 [cached]
The way Joe Weber sees it, the state transportation agency needs to increase financing for commuter and freight projects if it is to build the infrastructure that Texans are going to want and need in the decades ahead.
"That's going to be hard to do," Weber said.
"That's embarrassing to me," Weber said.
Weber, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant general, last week spoke with The Dallas Morning News about his philosophies on the future of Texas transportation.
Weber was most recently the vice president of student affairs at Texas A&M, his alma mater. Like Wilson, Weber is not an engineer and doesn't have a transportation-focused background.
But, he said, his 36-year tenure in the Marines included overseeing a host of construction work, military base installations and infrastructure projects.
"So it's not new to me," he said.
Weber said that meeting transportation needs isn't just about making sure Texans get to work. He said the future stability of the state's economy will rely on businesses, workers and consumers being able to connect through all modes of transport.
"It's about economic development," he said.
Weber said the agency needs to work closely with local authorities - including other transportation agencies - to better plan for future needs and projects. He said the agency will have to continue to explore new ways to finance projects. And emerging technologies such as automated cars could also lead to innovations that relieve congestion in less costly ways to the agency.
"We're really in a window of opportunity," Weber said.
