Regional Transportation Plan Update

Poster for Jan 16th forumPurpose: To provide technical planning assistance to PACTS staff and the long range plan update committee in the development of the 2014 Update of the PACTS Long Range Transportation Plan. We will also perform a survey of PACTS region residents regarding their attitudes and preferences on regional transportation policy issues.

Status: Two consultants will be hired in May and June 2014. Study scheduled for completion in the fall of 2014.

Budget: $65,000

Scope: One consultant will perform a statistically significant public opinion survey regarding residents’ transportation values, needs and investment priorities. The other consultant will assist in evaluating the region’s major transportation corridors in order to develop a plan to regain a balance among transportation modes that will allow walking, biking and the potential for public transportation, as well as by automobile.
