Is the southern section of SH 130 a private toll road?
SH 130 Segments 5 & 6 is a publicly owned facility that is privately operated and maintained by SH 130 Concession Co.
SH 130 Concession Co. built the roadway at no cost to the state and operates and maintains the road under a 50-year Facility Concession Agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation.
The Texas Department of Transportation oversaw, but did not pay for, the acquisition of all right of way and roadways required. The State of Texas is the title holder of record.
