Texas transportation officials have approved $15.8 million for a Houston area highway project that will be funded by a Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) pass-through finance program, according to TxDOT information.
The Brazoria County project includes State Highway 36 and FM 2004. Pass-through financing allows local municipalities or private entities to pay for costs to build a transportation project and get reimbursed from the state as the transportation project becomes operational. It lets local officials reprioritize and accelerate projects important to the region, according to the TxDOT information.
