PGSuper.com TxDOT Mirror Configuration

Use this method only if you cannot connect to the TxDOT FTP server listed above. The TxDOT server is the official server and is guaranteed to be up to date with TxDOT specifications.

For unknown reasons, there are several offices that cannot use PGSuper to connect to TxDOT's FTP servers. We have set up a mirror site within our community library to give those users another option for using the TxDOT Configuration. The instructions are as follows:

  1. Download the PGSuper.com Community Library set up tutorial document and follow the directions.
  2. After creating the PGSuper Community server, select it and then select the "TxDOT Mirror" configuration.
  3. Click "Update Libaries and Templates Now"
  4. Proceed using PGSuper.
