Loop 20

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - The ongoing Loop 20 upgrade could now be brought up to interstate standards.

The Texas Transportation Commission was in Laredo and approved a Regional Mobility Authority (RMA) for Webb County and the City of Laredo during a commission meeting held at Texas A&M International University. This is the first ever joint County/City RMA in the State of Texas. Once up and running, the authority will act as a local independent transportation agency that will oversee transportation projects in the area.

Webb County Judge Danny Valdez said the approvals given this morning by the Texas Transportation Commissioner will not only benefit our current Webb County residents, but all future generations to come.
