TxDOT Seeks Public Input on Transportation System of Future

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is planning for the future, and public input is crucial as the agency looks to meet the transportation needs of tomorrow. The agency is hosting a statewide virtual public meeting with in-person open houses this spring for "Connecting Texas 2050," the latest update to TxDOT’s statewide long-range transportation plan. 

With unprecedented population growth, increasing demands on our transportation system and technological innovations reimagining how people move, TxDOT wants to hear from the traveling public as the agency looks toward 2050. By combining public input and technical studies, TxDOT will establish the vision, objectives, performance measures and strategic recommendations for the state’s transportation system through 2050 for all modes.

During the statewide virtual public meeting and regional in-person open houses, TxDOT will explain the process of the statewide long-range transportation plan. Participants will have the opportunity to share their ideas and provide input on transportation goals and needs.

The statewide virtual public meeting is available through May 31. TxDOT also will host in-person open houses in various locations. For a full schedule, visit TxDOT online. The same information will be available at the virtual public meeting and in-person open houses.
