Texas Rail Plan update
TxDOT updated the Texas Rail Plan in December 2019 to reflect rail project priorities and fulfill eligibility requirements for federal funding of rail projects. Activities include the development of policy concepts, programs, and agency-specific strategies to improve the efficiency of freight movement and maintain on-time passenger service.
The rail system is a vital component of our thriving economy, safely connecting industries, ports, and people without congesting highways. TxDOT can maximize the value of rail through collaboration with private and local stakeholders, and identification and facilitation of important projects.
