Please attend or submit comments to the latest round of TxDOT’s process for the Texas Transportation Plan 2040, which is still in development.
TxDOT is hosting public meetings around the state during the summer months “to solicit input to guide the development of the TTP 2040 – the state’s multimodal, long-range transportation plan. The TTP 2040 will serve as TxDOT’s blueprint to guide collaborative planning efforts with our stakeholders in order to address the state’s transportation needs and accomplish the goals in TxDOT’s Strategic Plan.” See the full list of meetings here.
When you submit feedback to TxDOT, please keep the following in mind:
- Ask that TxDOT adopt an agency-wide, district-wide, and area-wide Complete Streets policy with guidance, procedures, and review included.
- Remind TxDOT that a Complete Streets policy is in accordance with their first priority: safety for all road users.
- Point out that the review process for Complete Streets is more economical in the long run, saving TxDOT the time and other resources required to add bicycle or pedestrian accommodations later in the project.
- Express your support for trails projects in your community: The current federal transportation bill allows TxDOT to move trails money away to non-bike/ped uses much more easily than before, and we want them to keep trails funding for trail building.
Thank you for participating in this process. Let’s make sure TxDOT remembers people who bike and walk in their transportation planning.
Update: Bob Brewer shared this interactive TTP 2040 meeting map with us, which has pins for meeting locations and times, beginning with meetings the week of June 24 (so earlier meetings are not included on the map). Find a meeting near you!
