Texas Transportation Code §223.012 requires TxDOT to calculate additional project-specific liquidated damages (APSLD) on projects that have a significant impact on the traveling public. TxDOT developed the Road User Cost Calculator, for use in conjunction with Form 2699, to determine these additional disincentives to help ensure the timely completion of projects.
