The Texas Department of Transportation and Texas A&M Transportation Institute will be gearing up for a unique project…

TxDOT and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute received a $1.9 million federal grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop a next-generation intersection that promises to improve safety for the most at-risk road users.
