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).
In late August, the Texas Transportation Commission approved a $70 billion Unified Transportation Program, or UTP. The UTP is TxDOT’s 10-year transportation planning document. It includes highway projects as well as rail, freight, aviation, public transportation and state and coastal waterway programs.
With the inclusion of voter approved Proposition 1 and Proposition 7 funding, the 10-year Unified Transportation Program is anticipated to increase over $38 billion --- from $28 billion to over $66 billion --- or an average of $6.6 billion per year.
