Transportation Advocates of Texas - Update
Joe Weber (Ret.), TxDOT Executive Director, talks about his early months leading the agency
On a recent visit to a Permian Basin oil and gas company, TxDOT Executive Director Joe Weber saw a PowerPoint slide showing that the company anticipates their oil field truck traffic to be 10 times greater in 2024 than it is today. Weber, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant general, took over the top job at the Texas Department of Transportation in April and has been spending his time since getting to know more about the state's transportation challenges. General Weber said the activity going on in the state's energy exploration and development sector is one of his biggest concerns - the one thing he loses sleep over. He said TxDOT and its contractors are continuing to fall further behind in the South Texas and Permian Basin counties where oil and gas activity is intense. Much of that activity is running over roads that were never meant for the kind of traffic they are seeing with thousands of heavy truck trips required for each well completion. Weber said that his concern would not be nearly as great if the energy development activity were going to subside in two or three years as some had previously suggested. Weber predicted that the expansion of economic activity in Mexico in the coming years will be dramatic and that it will mean substantially more truck and rail traffic in Texas. "Pretty amazing," Weber said. "We better be generating more revenue." He said he understands there will never be enough money to do everything and that what is important to him as TxDOT's executive director is that available funds be put in the right place with the right priorities. He also said he has concluded that while more road and bridge projects are essential, the state will never be able to fully build its way out of the congestion problems created by a potential doubling of the Texas population over the next 30 years.

Terri Hall â€“ Page 2 â€“ Texans for Toll-free Highways
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. With the Department's shift to tolling, some of this money it plans to divert to rail will include toll revenues. Texans won't take kindly to paying tolls to fund rail that they can't or won't use. Weber's position seems a contradiction in and of itself by acknowledging road funding is already inadequate to meet transportation needs, yet his plan to fix that is to steal yet more funding from roads to build rail. Weber did not respond to requests for clarification. The mixed messages state leaders are sending - Straus promising to end raid of gas tax for non-road purposes, while Weber is calling for road funds to go to rail - could torpedo the effort to get voters to approve more road funding this fall when Prop 1 appears on the ballot.
