The Texas Department of Public Safety in conjunction with The Texas Department of Transportation has opened the evacu-lanes. The evacu-lanes are designed to relieve traffic congestion during the initial phase of an evacuation. The evacu-lanes are only for roadways listed on the evacuation map as designated evacuation routes. These lanes should be used with extreme caution by those who are evacuating.
(Please refer to the evacuation map for evacuation routes)
Those roadways not listed as evacuation routes will not have evacu-lanes and travel on the shoulder of the roadways is strictly prohibited.
At this time, there has been no call made to initiate contraflow by The Texas Department of Public Safety.
