T&I Member-designated Projects

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) plans to advance surface transportation authorization legislation later this spring, building on H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, from the 116th Congress. Chairman Peter DeFazio announced that the T&I Committee will formally accept requests for projects from House Members.

The T&I Committee process for considering member projects is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation.

Please note:

  • Only legally-eligible entities, including state and local units of government, may request projects. 
  • Project sponsors must comply with all relevant federal laws and regulations.
  • A request submitted by Congressman Doggett to the Committee does NOT guarantee the project will be funded.



All requests submitted by Congressman Doggett to the T&I Committee are posted below. Members will be required to certify that neither they nor their immediate family have a financial interest in the requests made.
