In December 2016, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) approved the first 10-Year Plan of Projects for the Dallas-Fort Worth region funded by allocations of Category 2, 4, and 12 funds from the Texas Transportation Commission (TTC). Since that time, the 10-Year Plan has been updated at least annually in conjunction with the Texas Department of Transportation's Unified Transportation Program (UTP). These updates include changes to existing project limits, scopes, and funding as well as the addition of new projects.
A 10-Year Plan is required by House Bill (HB) 20, passed by the Texas Legislature in 2015. This legislation mandates that the state and metropolitan planning organizations utilize performance-based planning and project selection, along with developing criteria to consider congestion, safety, economic development, available funding, air quality, and socioeconomic effects.
Below are the RTC's actions related to the 10-Year Plan.
