Gulf Coast Strategic Highway Coalition (I-14 Coalition)

The Gulf Coast Strategic Highway System is being pursued to meet the military transportation needs of U.S. Army facilities in Texas and Louisiana and connect them with Strategic Deployment seaports — the Port of Corpus Christi and the Port of Beaumont.

The I-14/Gulf Coast Strategic Highway System will help meet the need to move a growing amount of freight from one region to another and provide improved safety for travelers moving in and out of Central Texas.

This upgraded highway infrastructure will provide economic development opportunities in portions of these states that have not kept up with the economic growth which has occurred elsewhere – and do it in an environmentally acceptable way. Proposed I-14 Map (Texas)
