REP. MUÑOZ AND THE HIDALGO COUNTY RMA ANNOUNCE OPENING DAY OF THE OVERWEIGHT/OVERSIZE CORRIDOR PERMITTING

MCALLEN TEXAS – A large group of produce, logistics, and other stakeholders gathered this morning at the McAllen Convention Center to hear the Hidalgo County Regional Mobility Authority announce that today permits are available to use the Overweight/Oversize Corridor. The O/O Corridor was authorized by the Legislature during its most recent regular session in Austin.

Rep. Muñoz authored the legislation, HB 474, and Senator Juan Hinojosa sponsored the measure in the Texas Senate.

"Today marks a milestone in our region’s economic development efforts," said Muñoz. “This corridor is another example of how creating partnerships between state and local governments, private industry, and economic development experts can provide benefit to the entire community. I am very proud to be a part of it and bring this key piece of infrastructure to promote trade and attract jobs and investments.”

Permits are $80 each and can be purchased at the following website:
