TxDOT issues $250M for alternative transportation

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has $250 million in federal funding available to cities for transportation alternatives projects.

The funding, which is available through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, can be used for sidewalks, bike lanes and shared-use paths to enhance walking and biking transportation across the state.

The number of pedestrians and cyclists killed on Texas roads has been rising over the past several years with pedestrian fatalities increasing by 15% and cyclist fatalities by 14% in 2021. TxDOT officials aim for this funding to reduce those fatalities and other incidents through walking and biking infrastructure.

Cities can apply for the projects here. The first application deadline is Jan. 27.
