TxDOT will test the new natural gas trucks in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex where cities like Irving support alternative fuel options. Once the pilot has concluded, the Department will evaluate the success of the program and determine if additional natural gas vehicles will be purchased.
“I would like to thank and congratulate TxDOT for their efforts in using alternative fuels, including natural gas, and taking measures to reduce emissions thus helping to improve air quality,” said Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne. “The City of Irving is a leader in environmental stewardship. I look forward to the continuation of Irving’s working relationship with TxDOT and our focus on enhancing the quality of life for Irving’s residents, visitors and businesses.”
