The Texas Department of Transportation is looking east -- way east -- to find companies that might be interested in bidding for construction projects on the Trans Texas Corridor .

A group of contractors, engineers and other business leaders from Spain will visit the Dallas-Fort Worth area and several other Texas cities Feb. 9-12 to learn details about future transportation projects.

The trade mission is being organized with the help of the American Chamber of Commerce in Spain.

The corridor is Gov. Rick Perry's long-term plan to build a 4,000-mile network of toll roads, high-speed rail lines and utilities. The goal of the plan, which could cost more than $150 billion, is to meet the state's mobility needs for the next 50 years.
