WATS Hosting Input Meetings on Long Range Transportation Plan

WATS is performing an interim update to the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan.  While this update largely reaffirms existing investment goals and policies, several new and exciting sections are being proposed for addition, as well as minor updates that have occurred since the Plan's 2013 adoption.  

The existing goals, examples of how to meet the goals, and performance measures to track the progress of the goals are outlined in the link.

The goals that provide the direction and vision for the Long Range Transportation Plan are below:

  1. Invest Strategically

  2. Provide access and mobility

  3. Promote a safe and secure transportation system

  4. Protect and enhance the environment

  5. Engage the public in the transportation decision making process

  6. Link transportation planning and land use

The new sections of the plan focus on Target Setting, Driverless and Connected Vehicles, Washtenaw County Equity Initiatives and Environmental Justice review.  As part of the update, WATS is hosting several public participation meetings which will provide an opportunity to review and provide comments on the Plan.
