Construction and maintenance agreement requirements

TxDOT routinely enters into construction and maintenance agreements with railroad companies, which provide TxDOT license and permission to perform work within railroad right of way. A separate Contractor Right-of-Entry agreement will then be executed between the contractor and railroad company to allow the contractor onto railroad right of way.

As a part of these agreements, completion of guidance and procedural documents related to the development of C&M agreements between TxDOT and various railroad companies is required, including:
