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’s latest functionality supports in-system management of Feasibility Studies projects and includes new capabilities around workflow, reporting and mapping. This release also features new functionality to support bulk upload of key data in the Engineer’s Estimate into TxDOTCONNECT, so that thousands of bid items can now be transferred easily and quickly by users and made available in the system.
TxDOTCONNECT will host four virtual roadshow sessions at the beginning of May via Microsoft Teams. All sessions cover the same agenda. Click on the link to join a roadshow and find out what the Spring Release has to offer.
