Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority Projects
The Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority (CCRMA) was established in 2004. Our mission is to make significant contributions to the region’s quality of life by providing effective, safe, accelerated mobility improvements that will encourage economic development and job creation in South Texas. We recognize that Brownsville and Cameron County has experienced over 200 percent growth in the last 35 years. Even at conservative estimates, we are projected to have over 600,000 people living in Cameron County in the next 20 years. If you factor in both sides of the border, the region is expected to reach over 3.5 million and by 2040 we should see population reaching 7 million. With all those people, we will see more cars. In fact we are already starting to see congestion increase specifically at major intersections such as US 77/83 and FM 3248.
After looking at the population statistics and projections and the traffic data, we have identified 9 projects that we believe meet the mission of the CCRMA. They include:
