STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: DETAILED STUDIES, UNIFYING CONTROLS, AND PERFORMANCE MONITORING

Statewide transportation planning involves at least five freight modes, four passenger modes, four levels of jurisdictions and hundreds of individual jurisdictions, private carriers, and many agencies dealing with land use, economy, social welfare, and environment. To help state departments of transportation maintain control over diverse planning studies, an approach is offered involving detailed studies, maintenance of unifying controls (e.g., demand estimates and environmental reports), and performance monitoring (e.g., recognizing key objectives such as safety, energy consumption, and costs). This approach recognizes the inevitability of detailed studies, the need to control and monitor studies, and the need to implement the approach with only minor organizational changes. /Author/
