Texas Department of Transportation

TxDOT’s goal is to address gridlock for Texas drivers statewide. We’re putting Texans and dollars to work to deliver on this commitment. In November of 2014 and 2015, Texas voters approved extra funding in the form of two amendments:

  • Proposition 1 – Directs a portion of oil and gas tax revenues into the State Highway Fund.
  • Proposition 7 – Directs a portion of the state’s general sales and use tax, motor vehicle sales and rental taxes to the State Highway Fund.

With this additional funding and collaboration with local transportation leaders across the state, TxDOT is compiling and developing critical projects in an effort to address congestion. These projects have now been approved and included in the state’s Unified Transportation Program (UTP), our 10-year project development plan.
