The Texas Transportation Commission (Commission) has the authority to determine that an acquired right of way interest is not required for state highway purposes and can declare that it is surplus to the needs of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). This includes roadside parks and material source sites.
The disposition of surplus right of way interests is governed by Vernon’s Texas Codes Annotated, Transportation Code, Chapter 202, Subchapter B (the statute).
