Also new to the process is the use of an extended cash forecast, which will provide greater flexibility for TxDOT and MPOs as they react to fluctuating financial resources by advancing or delaying projects.

The Texas Transportation Commission adopted the rules to allow residents and community leaders to play a more prominent role in planning the state’s transportation system, increasing transparency and accountability in the transportation planning process.
