The City of Hamilton, Ravalli County and the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) have initiated a community-wide transportation planning process. This process will assist the project partners, as well as the community at large, in guiding transportation infrastructure and implementation over the planning horizon (the year 2030). The City of Hamilton and Ravalli County have numerous transportation related issues that affect the efficiency and operational parameters of the existing transportation system. Additionally, there are numerous available lands within the general planning area that could develop over the future years and possibly result in additional transportation impacts to the community's residents.
Although a transportation planning effort was undertaken by the City of Hamilton in 2002, this will be the first truly comprehensive, multi-modal transportation plan within the area. Transportation is a major concern to city residents today. The project partners expect concern to remain high as growth continues and the challenges of accommodating travel needs become more difficult. A comprehensive Transportation Plan will provide an opportunity for city, county and state officials, staff and residents to work together to develop the innovative approaches necessary to plan and implement a transportation system that will serve the community's citizens well into the future.
