Transportation Planning Studies
Transportation Planning is a comprehensive process that involves evaluation, assessment and design of transportation facilities including streets, highways, bicycle lanes, and public transport infrastructure. The purpose of a transportation planning study is to develop recommended plans for future transportation improvements based on analysis of critical technical and environmental issues.
