The Webb County–City of Laredo Regional Mobility Authority (the “WC-CL RMA”) is a political subdivision, formed pursuant to Chapter 370 of the Texas Transportation Code (the “RMA Act”). The formation of the WC-CL RMA was approved by the Texas Transportation Commission on February 27, 2014, pursuant to the joint request of Webb County and the City of Laredo.
The WC-CL RMA represents the Legislature’s vision to give local communities greater flexibility to develop and implement innovative transportation programs while working with local governments and the Texas Department of Transportation (“TxDOT”). The WC-CL RMA can develop infrastructure projects in the South Texas region that otherwise might depend solely on state or federal funding. With the support and guidance of Webb County and the City of Laredo, the WC-CL RMA is evolving into an agile and effective organization.
The mission of the WC-CL RMA is to assist the establishment of a comprehensive transportation system to directly benefit the traveling public within Webb County and the City of Laredo through the development of additional transportation alternatives within the region.
