GROWING REGION, SHRINKING PLAN: PUTTING THE NEW LONG-RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN INTO PERSPECTIVE

On September 21, 1994, the Transportation Planning Board (TPB) adopted a new long-range transportation plan for the Washington region. Required by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) passed by Congress in 1991, the plan identifies more than 400 different highway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian projects to be completed by 2020. These include improvements to existing roadways, bicycle trails, and transit lines, as well as some brand new facilities and services. The plan also earmarks more than 40 general transportation improvements for further study, and specifies a number of strategies to reduce the number of cars on the road and manage the existing transportation system more efficiently.
