  • are located not more than one mile from an interstate highway system within the eligible counties; and/or
  • that are located inside the triangular area between the Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas-Fort Worth areas, and in the area in and between the Corpus Christi, Laredo, and San Antonio areas.
