Texas DOT Wants Public Input for Transportation System of 2050

TxDOT aims to build on this feedback by hearing from all Texans in rural areas, cities, and suburbs

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is looking for the public's input into the transportation system to prioritize transportation needs through 2050.

According to the TxDOT press release, TxDOT is hosting a statewide virtual public meeting with in-person open houses this fall for Connecting Texas 2050, the latest update to TxDOT’s statewide long-range transportation plan. Participants can share their vision for Texas’ transportation needs over the next 25 years and beyond and get the chance to help TxDOT shape the transportation system.

A previous Connecting Texas 2050 meeting was held this past spring where Texans shared a variety of ways that improvements to the state’s transportation system could support a better quality of life down the road. This fall, TxDOT will share potential strategies that could be implemented between now and 2050 to meet this need.

Here are a few top priorities from previous meetings:

  • Safety
  • Maintenance
  • Enhancing quality of life for all Texas residents
  • Alternative modes of travel and public transportation options

TxDOT aims to build on this feedback by hearing from all Texans in rural areas, cities, and suburbs.
