Transportation – The Big Picture
• The Texas Transportation Institute found that Texas needs:
• $6B annually to slow deteriorating pavement conditions and
congestion
• $10B annually to keep 2010 conditions stable
• Currently there is $2.8B available budget for 2014 and 2015

Why Such a Shortfall?
• There are many reasons
• Population – Increased congestion and maintenance
• Increased cost of resources and construction
• Vehicle fuel efficiency and Inflation affecting the tax rate
