Creation of impacTX: Improved Mobility Plan for Advancing Connected Transportation

The state is at a pivotal moment in transportation, where the rate of population growth, infrastructure deterioration, and congestion are outpacing Texas’s ability to provide quality service. This document introduces the Texas Technology Task Force, providing highlights on its most recent activities that have led to the creation of a strategy and innovation plan. The Improved Mobility Plan for Advancing Connected Transportation (impacTX) is a strategy and innovation roadmap to build a mobility foundation that will enable Texas to become the first Smart State. The purpose of the plan is to prepare and inform Texas transportation leaders and policymakers about the Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT’s) strategic and innovative activities. Communication goals are also identified to guide TxDOT in building trust, garnering support, and generating investment. The plan concludes with three recommendations that encourage TxDOT to take a leadership position, develop a priority connected and automated vehicle (CAV) pilot strategy, and extend the P3 framework to support smart mobility initiatives.
