Regional Transportation Priorities Plan under Development
As growth in our region continues to place heavier demands on our transportation network, decision-makers will be challenged to make critical improvements to roads, public transportation and pedestrian and bicycle facilities, all while funding is limited. In response to these challenges, the TPB embarked in 2011 on a process to develop a Regional Transportation Priorities Plan (RTPP). Visit the RTPP webpage for more information, including purpose, resource materials, information from the public comment period, and staff contact information.
