Modernize Portfolio and Project Management Initiative

TxDOTConnect logoTxDOTCONNECT 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.

Major Releases  
April 2019 The first release of TxDOTCONNECT focused on construction projects and consolidated DCIS functionality. It introduced a web-based, user-friendly system with geospatial mapping, new reporting capabilities and automated workflows to assign resources to projects.
October 2019 This release allowed TxDOT staff and external partners to create and manage the Engineer's Estimate in TxDOTCONNECT.
June 2020 The latest release of system functionality consolidates Right of Way and Utilities project information in TxDOTCONNECT, eliminates dual data entry in multiple systems and spreadsheets, and improves collaboration among TxDOT staff and external partners.

Enhancements are made frequently to the system and major releases are planned through 2022 to introduce new functionality and continue consolidating legacy systems.
