Open Records Policy

TxDOT's policy is to provide you with the fullest possible access to public information. If you wish to request records under the Texas Public Information Act, please refer to the following requirements and guidelines.

  • Requests must be made in writing. Telephone requests are not considered open records requests.
     
  • If you would like a response, please include your name, address, telephone number and a clear description of the records you are requesting in all open records requests.

  • Written requests may be mailed, faxed or delivered in person to our offices at 125 E. 11th St., Austin, TX 78701, or to the addresses listed on the district/division/office contact pages.
     
  • Email requests will be accepted only if they are sent through our website in accordance with 43 TAC Chapter 3. To send an open records request now, please use our Open Records Request Page.

TxDOT is under no legal obligation to respond if the requirements of the Public Information Act are not followed. For questions about the Public Information Act, please consult the website of the Texas Office of Attorney General, Open Records Division.

Open records requests are not required for Texas Peace Officer's Crash Reports (CR-3), which are available for purchase through the Crash Report Online Purchase System.
