ATTENTION TXDOT CUSTOMERS: Some TxDOT applications and equipment have been impacted by the worldwide CrowdStrike outage.

Resources for educators

TxDOT’s work goes Beyond The Road to look at how our projects affect wildlife, historic bridges, wildflowers, pollinators, and more. As a result of our countless hours of research and programs that benefit these environmental resources, Beyond The Road developed tools for educators:

  • Teacher guides
  • PowerPoints with lessons
  • Student activities
