Connecting Texas 2050 is the state agency’s update to its long-range transportation plan. TxDOT is collecting feedback “to help establish the vision, objectives, performance measures and strategic recommendations for the state’s transportation system through 2050 for all modes,” per a news release.

A statewide virtual public meeting will be hosted online and in-person through May 31.
