This year marks TXDOT's 100th anniversary. Even from the first day this agency was signed into law – April 4, 1917 – we were destined to leave an indelible mark on Texas and the nation. But that may have been hard to determine from our beginnings.
Texas has become the place to be if our growing population numbers are any indication. Today, our state is a community of 27 million people. And where is most of that population concentrated?
As we begin 2017, the Texas Department of Transportation is preparing for two very important events: first, our 100th year of service to the citizens of Texas, and second is the 85th Legislative Session and our department’s Sunset review.
For the last year, here at the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), we have been working with our local partners to develop a plan for how best to address Texas’ growing transportation needs. That plan is the 2017 Unified Transportation Program (UTP).
