  • Abstract:
    While a formal planning and programming process is established for urbanized areas through Metropolitan

    Planning Organizations, no similar requirement has been established for rural areas. Currently, under the

    Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, states are required to

    consult with non-metropolitan local officials in transportation planning and programming. The consultation

    process between state Departments of Transportation (DOT) and non-metropolitan local officials is not

    prescribed in the planning rules, and consultation practices vary widely among each state’s DOT.

    Historically, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has worked in cooperation with each

    individual rural county to plan and program projects. This has often resulted in a county-by-county project

    list that the TxDOT districts must try to fashion into a regional strategy or plan. A need exists to examine the

    concept of rural planning organizations and research their use in Texas to determine if a formal rural

    planning organization may offer a means to improve transportation planning and programming. The

    objective of this research is to identify and examine rural planning organizations, their structure and

    operation, and their role in transportation planning and programming. The project will include a review of

    current processes used by TxDOT and other agencies to plan and program transportation projects in rural

    areas.
