It assesses regional trends and forecasts and sets forth a vision for the future. The Plan is organized around five core principles to achieve the vision: Sustain the Environment; Develop Livable Communities; Expand the Economy; Advance Equity and Foster Diversity; and Create an Integrated, Multimodal Transportation Network. The Plan includes goals and strategies under each of the five core principles. It also identifies a set of investments in the region’s transportation system that are needed to preserve and maintain the existing system, as well as other critical improvements that make the system operate more efficiently and expand capacity. Due to declining funding revenues, only a portion of these investments can be afforded. The Plan prioritizes investments, based on quantitative analysis, and presents an overview of alternatives to address the funding shortfall.
