Study by section

Transportation is a major concern to area residents today. The planning 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, state, and tribal 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.
