TxDot design budget for 2008 has been cut from $45.2 million to $19.6 million

The Austin American Statesman reports this morning that the TxDot new design road construction budget has been cut.

“They’re calling it the ‘Black Christmas,’ ” said Lisa Powell, owner of PE Structural Consultants in Austin, a 14-person firm that in good times gets 90 percent or more of its business from TxDOT. “A lot of people are really scrambling right now, fearful about what’s going to happen.”
