Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan
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.
