Across our region transportation is a significant issue. The time we spend traveling eats into time with our families, is bad for our health, and takes a financial toll.
With a growing population, we can't keep relying on our current system. And, unfortunately, we can't simply build our way out of traffic congestion. Widened highways and new roads quickly fill right back up.
We must think beyond trying to fix congestion to a more holistic approach to increasing mobility options. This means implementing new approaches to transportation planning, such as better coordinating land use and transportation; increasing the availability of high-quality transit service; creating redundancy, resiliency and connectivity within their road networks; and ensuring connectivity between pedestrian, bike, transit, and road facilities.
