Chapter 1: Transportation Planning and Programming Process


Section 1: Process Description

Anchor: #i998877


The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) envisions achieving an effective planning and programming process through coordination between federal agencies, state agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), elected officials, and private and public sectors in different forms of transportation. The chart in Section 2 identifies major steps and documents which move projects from the beginning stage of “identification of need” to the final planning stage of “letting to contract” or “project implementation.” This complicated process has been abbreviated here to indicate “products” developed by TxDOT and its planning partners that lead to project implementation.
