TxDOT Is in the Money: Record Levels of Funding Anticipated to Pour In.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports, ” Texas is expected to generate a record $25.4 billion in revenue for roads, bridges and other components of the transportation system during the next two years, according to estimates released Monday [January 9] by the state comptroller’s office.” The report adds, “The Texas Department of Transportation is expected to get $12.8 billion next year and $12.6 billion in 2019 for highways, bridges and other mobility projects. If the estimates are accurate, the revenue likely would be more than the state has ever received specifically for transportation, officials said. The annual amounts are more than double what was spent annually on transportation projects a decade ago.”
