Goals and Objectives
This room presents the draft goals and objectives developed by the project team to guide development of the TSP update.
Updating a planning document like a transportation system plan requires that goals and objectives be developed to help guide the planning process. These goals and objectives were used to help identify and prioritize transportation improvement projects to be included as part of the final transportation system plan.
The following summarizes the goals and objectives for this planning effort.
The Draft TSP can be found HERE. The Goals and Objectives can be found in Chapter 2 of the Draft TSP.
Goal 1: Safety
Provide a transportation system that is safe and secure for all transportation modes and for people of all abilities.
Goal 2: Environment
Create a sustainable and resilient transportation system, while minimizing environmental impacts of the transportation system, improvement projects, and maintenance.
