The Transportation Master Plan is a comprehensive strategic planning document that defines policies, programs, and infrastructure improvements required to address transportation and growth needs from today through to 2041.
Emerging issues, such as health, climate change and an aging population are affecting the way we travel. A plan is needed to ensure that this growth is accommodated in a sustainable way, and that transportation decisions foster economic prosperity.
