CARTPO to discuss Proposition 7 funding, project priorities

Thursday, November 12, 2015

The Capital Area Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CARTPO) will discuss the anticipated funding the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will receive from the passing of Proposition 7 as it relates to regional transportation infrastructure projects during its 9:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 20 meeting.

Proposition 7 will provide a permanent funding stream of about $2.5 billion through state fees to TxDOT for transportation projects starting in 2018. It is being enacted after a constitutional amendment was drafted during the 84th legislative session and authorized by the Senate Joint Resolution 5.

CARTPO members also will reevaluate their local priorities for transportation funding which CARTPO provided to TxDOT in 2014 for consideration in several of the agency’s programs. The programs included the Long-Range Transportation Plan, Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan, Unified Transportation Program and other TxDOT initiatives requiring consultation with rural planning organizations.

The meeting will be in the CAPCOG Pecan Room.
