TxDOT celebrates 100 years of service to Texans

The Texas Department of Transportation turned 100 years in April, and to commemorate the centennial a special traveling exhibit will be visiting various locations in the Brownwood District in mid-May. The centennial events highlight the agency’s ongoing mission of connecting Texans to what matters most – the people and places they love.

To commemorate this 100- year milestone, TxDOT invites the public to visit its centennial website. The public also is invited to “Track the Truck” and join in the celebration as a refurbished, 27-foot-long 1918 Liberty Truck makes its way across the state as part of a traveling exhibit that tells the district-by-district story of the agency’s 100-year history.
