TxDOT develops transportation plans and programs for all areas of the state. Preparation of the statewide transportation plan is required by both state legislation as well as by federal law. In 1991, the Texas Legislature charged TxDOT with the task of developing a multimodal statewide transportation plan. The Statewide Transportation Plan provides a framework for long-term planning, development, and preservation of the state’s transportation system. Steps necessary for coordinated development of the plan are outlined in the chart shown in Section 2.
