Celebrate 40 Years of Safety with Texas811!

Welcome to a milestone celebration as Texas811 proudly marks its 40-year anniversary! Established in 1984, we've come a long way since then, witnessing incredible transformations in technology, lifestyle, and the economy. As we reflect on the past, let's take a trip down memory lane and appreciate the incredible journey that has shaped us into who we are today.

A Journey Through Time:

In 1984:

  • The average home price was $97,000; today, it stands at $412,000.
  • A movie ticket cost $3.36, compared to today's $14.
  • Only 40,000 people owned a cell phone, and installing one in a car cost between $1,900 and $4,100.
  • Computers, a luxury at the time, ranged from $1,800 to $2,500.

What Remains Unchanged:

Amidst these transformations, one thing has remained constant since 1984 – the unwavering mission of Texas811. Our commitment to facilitating damage prevention, promoting public safety, and protecting the environment through stakeholder education and communication is as steadfast as ever.

Your Impact:

Our 40-year anniversary is not just a celebration; it's a moment to acknowledge the vital role each one of you plays. Your dedication contributes to the essential fabric of Texas infrastructure, ensuring safe economic growth and the well-being of all Texans. What you do at Texas811 has always been and will continue to be a BIG DEAL!

Looking Forward:

As we celebrate this significant milestone, we also look ahead to the future. With $500 billion allocated for infrastructure, the next 40 years promise growth and progress. Without the crucial services provided by 811, this growth wouldn't happen in a safe and timely manner.

Join the Celebration:

Throughout this year, we have exciting plans to mark this achievement. It's not just about looking back; it's about looking forward with anticipation and excitement for the next 40 years. Join us in celebrating the legacy of keeping Texas safe.

I, Chris Stovall, am thrilled to share this journey with you. Your commitment to Texas811 has been instrumental in our success, and I look forward to celebrating 40 years of safety with you throughout the year.

Here's to the past, present, and future of Texas811 – a legacy of safety, growth, and excellence!
