The Texas Transportation Commission has approved spending more than $13.5 million to make improvements to two major Burnet County thoroughfares after letting contracts at their most recent meeting.

The commission also unanimously approved the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), which requires the state to develop a four-year program of surface transportation projects based on anticipated federal, state, local and private funds available for use. Burnet County is expected to see about $21.95 million in construction and engineering funding through federal, state and local sources during the next four year.
