MEDIA: TxDOT seeks public input to build the transportation system of 2050
ATLANTA – The Texas Department of Transportation is planning for the future, and public input is crucial as the agency looks to prioritize transportation needs through 2050.
Demand on our roadways is increasing. Technology is reimagining how we move, now more than ever, and it’s important to look ahead. This is why 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 of tomorrow.
During previous Connecting Texas 2050 public meetings, held in spring 2023, 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 the agency 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:
- 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, even visitors, from people in rural areas, cities, suburbs – anywhere in Texas. The statewide virtual public meeting will be available on www.ConnectingTexas2050.com through Dec. 15, 2023. TxDOT will also host in-person open houses in various locations. For a full schedule, visit TxDOT online (www.ConnectingTexas2050.com). The same information will be available at the virtual public meeting and in-person open houses.
An interactive survey can be completed at in-person open houses and online (www.ConnectingTexas2050.com). To learn more about how to provide a comment and how to request special accommodations for meetings, visit txdot.gov and search “Connecting Texas 2050.”
