About This Site
This website is dedicated to informing businesses, governments, drivers and travelers in Texas about TxDOT's efforts to address traffic congestion. We realize the frustrating nature of the situation; that's why we want the public to know we're serious about addressing congestion and travel times. This site is part of our commitment to keeping you updated on our efforts.
Additionally, we'll be looking to communities and organizations for their ideas on clearing the lanes throughout Texas. In updates to come, you will see photos of work being completed around the state to reduce travel times and improve commutes.
This site explores:
- The Problem: Why is traffic getting worse? What roadways are the most congested? What are the costs (both in dollars and in time) associated with traffic congestion?
- What We're Doing: What is TxDOT doing to address the problem? What funds are dedicated to this effort? What projects are underway or ready to go?
- How You Can Help: We recognize that building roads is not the only solution. We offer alternative ways of commuting and ask how you're addressing the problem in your community.
- Contact Us: We will use social media to share your ideas and thoughts on how we can reduce congestion.
