Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Transportation develop ten-year plan to help meet the demand on roads amid population boom and economic growth.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) are proposing a record 10-year $100 billion transportation plan that will increase the number of projects to improve congestion, maintain roadways, and increase safety across the state. This is estimated to be $15 billion more than the 2023 Unified Transportation Program (UTP) and is based on the record projected revenue for the state, derived primarily from growth in Proposition 1 (2015 legislative session) revenues generated by oil and gas severance fees dedicated to highway improvements.
This unprecedented investment in the 2024 UTP would also increase funding in vital areas, including safety, energy sector, rural and urban connectivity, border infrastructure, maintenance, and preservation.
