Funding needs and potential sources
The Texas transportation system faces challenges like never before. Demand on the system is outpacing available revenue, and factors like inflation, a growing population, an aging infrastructure, and more fuel-efficient vehicles are pushing current funding sources to their limits.
A healthy and reliable transportation system is critical for Texas, now and in the future. However, solving the state's current funding problems will require a multi-level approach, with all Texans involved in the planning process.
TxDOT has developed a statewide funding brochure that outlines the needs of highway and road funding in the state to kick-start the discussion. The resources below list the source material for data found in the brochure.
