Transportation and Infrastructure Committee

The Transportation and Infrastructure Advisory Committee plays a prominent role in informing and uniting advocacy efforts related to securing federal and local funds for flood mitigation purposes and is focused on local, state and federal policy issues that affect Houston’s transportation industry, network and infrastructure. Committee members focus on port infrastructure development, advancing methods for congestion alleviation and addressing critical funding needs, including for streets and drainage. The committee will continue to prioritize its efforts on coordinating and advocating for the resiliency needs of the region, as well as affecting the region’s many other major infrastructure needs.

  • Supporting the development and implementation of regional and statewide flood and resilience plans.

  • Supporting significant investments at the local and state level to leverage federal funding for infrastructure designed to protect both the economy and people from future storms.
