Additional information

The new TxDOT 10.12 workspace is now available and is compatible with the software versions shown above.  All TxDOT PMs have been encouraged to adopt the new workspace as soon as possible. 

  • All new projects moving forward will be required to use the TxDOT 10.12 workspace.
  • All existing projects using the 10.10 workspace can be migrated to the 10.12 workspace.

Moving to the Bentley CONNECT 10.12 applications and the TxDOT 10.12 workspace will allow your project to take advantage of the 100+ enhancements and 300+ resolved issues that are included in this release. 

Software enhancements include improvements to geometry, terrain, modeling, drawing production, annotation, item types, drainage, and utilities.

Digital Delivery Section Director's message

This is an exciting step toward enhancing TxDOT’s operational efficiency. Additional testing is currently underway to determine how to strategically and promptly move all agency projects to a single version of ORD. This strategic move is essential to meet the prerequisites for the full implementation of Digital Delivery, ensuring a seamless and advanced technological transition for TxDOT. Additional communication will be coming soon, but until then, enjoy the new software and workspace enhancements!
