Interstate Highway 45 Zero Emission Vehicle Corridor Deployment Plan
The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) was selected to receive funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to create a plan for the build-out of electric vehicle charging and hydrogen refueling infrastructure along Interstate 45. This is a critical step to transition this highway into a Zero-Emission Vehicle Corridor and enable emissions-free travel, with focus on the freight sector. NCTCOG, in cooperation with the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC), will develop a stakeholder group that includes fleet end-users, hydrogen and electric vehicle industry representatives, research groups, and utilities. This initiative is part of a longer-term, broad view of IH-45 as a strategic corridor for sustainable initiatives, which could include items such as autonomous vehicle technologies, truck platooning, and other emerging transportation elements.
