Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan

Transportation planning

Connecting Texas 2050, the latest update to the Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan (SLRTP), is the cornerstone multimodal transportation planning document at TxDOT. Updated every four years, this plan considers current and future transportation choices and how they integrate as a system to serve Texans and our economy. With Connecting Texas 2050, TxDOT establishes the vision, goals, objectives, performance measures, and strategic recommendations for the state’s multimodal transportation system through 2050. Connecting Texas 2050 development kicked off in fall 2022 and will continue through summer 2024.

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.
