Russell Laughlin — President, 35W Coalition
The 35W Coalition engages and educates businesses, civic groups, the public, and key policymakers about the mobility crisis facing our region, particularly along the I-35W corridor. We do this through quarterly meetings to update members and interested parties about key transportation priorities, pending legislation and progress made in the region.
The 35W Coalition is focused on:
• Advancing continued improvements to I-35W corridor
• Advocating for increased investments in transportation affecting this region
• Fostering quality development that preserves the aesthetics and value of the region
• Supporting the efforts of other transportation organizations and projects that impact the region
Through the Coalition's advocacy efforts, we helped accelerated improvements to I-35W North and the I-35W/I-820 interchange by several years. We have also secured passage of the 35W development guidelines by the City of Fort Worth and assisted in securing $415 million in federal funding through the Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) program and $130 million in state funding.
Members have access through our quarterly meetings, invitation-only receptions and legislative visits to key elected officials and transportation executives who drive transportation decisions in our state. You'll also receive newsletters and legislative alerts to help you understand the issues and prepare you to take action.
Become part of a powerful and credible organization that uses a unified voice to leverage change and move key transportation projects forward.
