County road inventory leads to more maintenance funding

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The CAPCOG Planning and Economic Development Division helped Blanco, Caldwell, Lee and Llano counties inventory every county-maintained road in effort to not only produce accurate information for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) but also to assist the counties in securing additional road maintenance funding.

Using the region’s 9-1-1 database, which is updated on a monthly basis, CAPCOG identified every county-maintained road and checked it against TxDOT’s current information. “In every county, CAPCOG identified road segments that needed to be added to the TxDOT database,” said Chris Schreck, CAPCOG Planning and Economic director. “With as much growth and development as is happening in our region, there’s a lot to be done to keep databases of roadways current.”

Besides planning purposes, TxDOT uses the county road inventory to distribute funding to the counties for roadway maintenance. The funding is distributed in proportion to the number of lane-miles maintained by each county, so the more county-maintained roadway miles there are in TxDOT’s County Road Inventory database, the more funding a county receives from the state.
