Program Descriptions


The Statewide Planning subprogram, along with the Regional Planning subprogram, make up the Transportation Planning Program, which implements statewide transportation policy through coordination at the local and regional levels and develops transportation plans and projects. The department prepares the long-range state transportation plan required by state and federal laws and provides long-range transportation system planning and transportation planning studies as input to the regional transportation plans, the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), and departmental policies and programs such as goods movement, climate action, and regional blueprint planning. The department also prepares the Interregional Transportation Strategic Plan, which guides investment of the Interregional Improvement Program funds in the STIP.
