For local projects, Weber discussed the importance of State Highway 146, stating that it will move forward. He also mentioned the importance of addressing freight movement at the port.

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.
