Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan

Transportation planning

TxDOT works to deliver a safe, reliable, and integrated transportation system. “Connecting Texas 2050” is the latest update of TxDOT’s Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan (SLRTP). Guiding transportation planning and investment strategies across Texas, Connecting Texas 2050 is the cornerstone of the planning process at TxDOT.

  • Planning Horizon: 2050
  • Updated: Every four years
  • Purpose: Establish the vision, objectives, performance measures, and strategic recommendations for the state’s transportation system through 2050 for all modes

Connecting Texas 2050 will consider current and future transportation choices, and how they integrate as a system to serve Texans and our economy. With public input and technical studies, TxDOT will develop strategic recommendations to address the safety, reliability, and resiliency of the state’s multimodal system for 2050.

Help TxDOT connect to the future

Whether you connect across our rural heartlands or in the hearts of our cities, or somewhere in between, if you live or work in Texas, your input and involvement are important for the development of this plan.
