    The Future Of Texas Depends On Making Sure Infrastructure Remains A Priority!

    Texans have spoken up!

    In 2011, it was estimated that Texas needed an additional $5 billion per year to keep up with growth and maintain current transportation standards.

    Vote “YES”.

    In 2014 and again in 2015, more than 83% of Texas voted “YES” to make Texas roads and bridges safe and keep people moving without raising a single penny in taxes, fees, or tolls. The funds voters approved have allowed the Texas Department of Transportation to set a new record for infrastructure projects currently under contract. Thanks to Propositions 1 and 7, our state is investing more than ever in better, safer roads and bridges that will allow Texas to continue driving the nation forward. TxDOT is funding vital transportation projects across the state to ease congestion and repair roads and bridges, all while staying on the job during a pandemic.

    Now, we vote on Proposition 2.

    In 2021, Texas legislators overwhelmingly supported HJR 99 to give Texans a vote on this Constitutional amendment, Proposition 2, that will give a county local control to finance the development (or redevelopment) of transportation or infrastructure in unproductive, underdeveloped, or blighted areas of the county. HJR 99 also allows a county to finance the projects with bonds and notes.

    Proposition 2 is OUR opportunity to make #infrastructure a PRIORITY in our local communities.

    Move Over and Slow Down: Watch Out for Road Crews

    In 2020, more than 22,000 traffic crashes occurred in work zones in Texas, resulting in 186 deaths, a 9 percent increase in traffic fatalities over the previous year. Another 680 people were seriously injured. Drivers and their passengers account for the majority of those involved in fatal work zone crashes.
    TxDOT continues to work on increased safety measures and public outreach efforts to remind drivers of the state’s Move Over/Slow Down law. It requires drivers to
    1. Move over a lane or
    2. Reduce your speed to 20 mph below the posted speed limit when approaching a TxDOT vehicle, emergency vehicle, tow truck or utility vehicle stopped with flashing blue or amber lights on the roadside or shoulder.

    Violation of this law can result in a fine of up to $2,000.

    Stay in the loop and learn when we’ll be in your area.

      Let your Legislator know you want them to Keep The Promise and protect public infrastructure funding!

      Tell your Legislator “Thanks!” for giving Texans an opportunity to vote on infrastructure funding this November.

      The Texas Legislature has given Texans an opportunity to make infrastructure funding a priority in this November’s election. Constitutional Proposition 2 will allow counties to dedicate additional funding to infrastructure in blighted areas and keep Texans safe on the road while reducing time spent in traffic.

      We’re thanking the Legislature for their work to #KeepthePromise and ensure infrastructure funding remains a priority. Join us and say “Thanks!” to your Legislators.
