The population in Texas is growing - more than 400,000 people move here each year. These new people and a growing economy create new demands on Texas’ transportation system. With limited resources, TxDOT must invest wisely to keep Texans and the economy moving.
We want to hear from you. Click on the bars to the right to tell us what’s important to you for the future of Transportation in Texas.

Thank you for your input.

1 - System Preservation
$230 billion
Ensuring that highway and transit systems are maintained in good condition so they remain safe and able to serve their intended purpose.
Close
Approach 1 - System Preservation
This approach is focused on ensuring that highway and transit systems are maintained in good condition so they remain safe and able to serve their intended purpose today and in the future.
Bridge condition Bridges will be kept in good condition, remaining structurally sound and open for use.
Pavement condition State roadways will generally be pothole free and support a smooth ride.
Transit condition Buses, trains, and associated facilities in all areas of the state will be comfortable and reliable.
New transit and rail ridership With current transit service levels maintained, ridership as a percentage of the total population will decrease since new service will not be provided.
Congestion Congestion in all areas of the state will be worse than today.
Jobs created Preserving our system will create a minimal number of new jobs.
Safety Safety is TxDOT’s number one priority and all statewide safety concerns are addressed.
2 - Metropolitan Mobility
$475 Billion
Addressing congestion and providing modal alternatives in highly populated areas of the state to reduce the time that drivers spend stuck in traffic.
3 - Connectivity and Freight Mobility
$460 Billion
Supporting the efficient movement of goods and services to create jobs and sustain a vibrant and growing economy.
Close
Approach 3: Connectivity and Freight Mobility
This approach is focused on supporting the efficient movement of goods and services to create jobs and sustain a vibrant and growing statewide economy.
Bridge condition Bridges located along roadways with significant freight traffic will be maintained in good condition, with some signs of aging. The condition of bridges on other roadways will deteriorate further with only routine maintenance applied.
Pavement condition Pavement on roadways that support significant freight traffic will be kept in fair condition with some potholes and cracking evident. Pavement on other roadways will show significant wear and tear with only routine maintenance applied.
Transit condition Buses, trains and associated facilities in rural areas will be maintained in good condition and enhanced to accommodate rural needs. The condition of assets in urban areas will deteriorate with only basic maintenance applied.
New transit and rail ridership Ridership will increase for transit and passenger rail in rural areas as more accessible and convenient travel options are provided in these regions as well as intercity rail between major metropolitan areas. Current ridership trends will persist for urban areas. Additional bike and pedestrian enhancements are provided in rural areas.
Congestion Congestion in rural areas will be reduced compared to today.
Jobs created Reducing travel delays for freight traffic will reduce the cost of moving goods, support the State’s growing economy, and create jobs.
Safety Safety is TxDOT’s number one priority and all statewide safety concerns are addressed.

We are providing you with three example investment approaches to show you the costs and outcomes of investing in our transportation system in three distinct ways.
  • Look at the cost of each approach and consider that the State’s expected budget to fund the transportation choices shown over the next 26 years is approximately $250 billion.
  • How well does each approach match your vision for transportation in Texas? Depending on your priorities, you may prefer one approach over the others.
  • Rate each approach by assigning a number of stars.
  • Provide any additional comments.

What would your annual statewide transportation budget look like? For the investment categories shown on the next screen, the annual budget across the State is approximately $9 billion ($5.5 billion in TxDOT highway funds and $3.5 billion in transit agency funds).

If $5 billion annually in new funds were available, how would you spend them?

Please note:
  • The total annual need for the statewide transportation system in the categories provided is over $20 billion. This includes multimodal needs of both TxDOT and its transportation partners.
  • Some investments are already made for you. These reflect current priorities and ways of doing business.
  • The categories are “capped;” you cannot invest more than what is needed to reach good conditions on the State system and for the categories shown.
  • You can exchange your “chips” to invest in $250 million, $500 million, and $1 billion increments.
  • You do not have to invest all $5 billion.
