TxDOT continues to make improvements to its roadway system. The overall condition of the region’s infrastructure has remained stable over the past few years. The percentage of TxDOT roadways rated “good or better” increased to 84% in 2018. Bridge conditions decreased to 81%.
The response time needed to clear a major incident on area freeways decreased 4% from 33.3 minutes to 31.8 minutes, as reported by Houston TranStar. This decrease is due in part to the Tow and Go program which launched in May 2018.
Bus vehicle reliability improved 2% to 11,016 miles in 2018.
