Modernize Portfolio and Project Management Initiative

Over the next ten years, TxDOT will design and construct up to $70 billion in transportation projects. We must have a modern technology solution to support the people behind this effort. In connection with the Modernize Portfolio and Project Management  initiative, TxDOT presents TxDOTCONNECT.

TxDOTCONNECT is our new, custom-built system for managing the delivery of transportation programs, projects and right of way. The system is designed to help TxDOT staff work at peak efficiency as they build a world-class transportation system for Texas. TxDOTCONNECT will allow us to make a leap forward in productivity and consolidate the functionality of many of the legacy systems currently used by TxDOT.
