Cameron County Non-Radioactive Hazardous Material Route Plan

The Brownsville and Harlingen-San Benito Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), in collaboration with regional stakeholders, conducted a hazardous cargo route study in order to develop a set of non-radioactive hazardous materials (NRHM) routes for Cameron County. The objective of the Cameron County Hazardous Cargo Route Study was to select NRHM routes that minimize both the potential for hazardous materials incidents and the consequences for the residents of Cameron County should an incident occur.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Over the past few months the Harlingen-San Benito MPO has been working closely with HALFF Associates to develop a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for our MPO area. After many reviews and comments received from the community, the Bike & Ped Task Force, Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), Transportation Policy Committee (TPC), and each of our MPO cities, we have entered the last stage of the development of this Master Plan. This plan identifies gaps in the existing infrastructure within the HSBMPO planning area and creates recommendations for a complete, multi-modal, and user-friendly system of alternative transportation options such as bike lanes, sidewalks, and trails. Following the adoption of this plan, we look forward to helping each city with the implementation of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan in their area.

Our goal is to connect users to the places they want to go, including neighborhoods, downtowns, work centers, and bus stops. If you have any questions regarding     this plan, please contact our office.
