I can die happy now. After two years, a final draft of SRTC’s Horizon 2040 plan is finally complete and out to an official 30-day public comment period.

2040 is a long-term “blueprint” that guides how the
regional transportation system will grow and develop through the year 2040. It
is based on projections for growth in population, housing and jobs and takes
into consideration every mode of transportation, such as private vehicles,
public transit, bicycling, walking, freight movement, rail and air travel. Horizon 2040 includes:

  • The projected demand expected to
    be placed on the regional transportation system between 2014 and 2040;
  • the condition of existing
    transportation facilities;
  • strategies to operate and
    maintain regional transportation facilities and manage congestion;
  • assessments of area pedestrian
    and bicycle facilities;
  • a list of transportation projects
    and programs to be constructed or completed by 2040; and
  • a financial plan to carry out all
    of the above activities.
So, we’ve done our part. Now it’s time to do yours. We’re giving you 30 days to review the plan, plus two open houses if you want to come talk to us about it in person, and submit comments. Here are the details on the open houses:
