Arrington seeks federal assistance for I-27 expansion

Posted: Updated:

Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington says he is advocating for federal money in West Texas. Specifically, for the Ports-to-Plains Corridor.

That project would connect I-27 to Laredo.

"We've got a lot of congestion on I-35 and other highways and bi-ways throughout the state, and we've got a tremendous amount of important product -- the food, fuel and fiber for this country -- has to make its way to the East and West coasts, and I can't think of a better investment to do that," Arrington said.

The congressman says he also wants to build out high speed internet infrastructure.

He says that's desperately needed in the many rural communities throughout District 19.
