The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT, pronounced "tex-dot") is a governmental agency in the U.S. state of Texas. Its stated mission is to "work with others to provide safe and reliable transportation solutions" throughout the state. Though the public face of the agency is generally associated with the construction and maintenance of the state's immense highway system, the agency is also responsible for overseeing aviation, rail and public transportation systems in the state.
At one time TxDOT also administered vehicle registration; however this function transferred to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, a newly created state agency which began operations in November 2009.
The agency has been headquartered in the Dewitt C. Greer Building at 125 East 11th Street in Downtown Austin, Texas, since 1933.
