Local Government Projects Toolkit

The Local Government Projects Toolkit provides organized access to rules, regulations, and procedures for projects managed by local governments that include federal or state funding provided by TxDOT.

The toolkit and related documents address state and federal requirements administered through the Federal Highway Administration. The toolkit does not address public transportation, aviation, or concessionaire projects.
