TxDOT paving the way for more diversity

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Department of Transportation is paving the way for more diversity.

This year's PAVED Transportation Summit provides opportunities for small, minority and women owned businesses to work on major highway projects.

Projects Adding Value by Expanding Diversity, a.k.a. PAVED, was developed by TxDOT's Civil Rights Division.

TxDOT hopes to provide these businesses with the resources needed to succeed in the marketplace.

"What we are trying to do is connect these small business owners to highway construction industry professionals, allowing them to exchange ideas and provide opportunities for these small businesses to work with TxDOT," Public Information Officer Dianah Ascencio said. 

The summit discussed new projects in Yoakum, Castro and Hockley counties
