TxDOTCONNECT is the agency’s new, custom-built system for managing the delivery of transportation programs, projects and right of way. The system allows us to make a leap forward in productivity and consolidate the functionality of many of the legacy systems currently used by TxDOT. The agency launched the system in early 2019.
Spring 2021 - Planned Release
TxDOTCONNECT is developing new functionality to support management of letting activities, feasibility studies, publishing proposals and alternative delivery projects.
