Developing Guidelines for Incorporating Managing Demand into WSDOT Planning and Programming

Washington State Department of Transportation's (WSDOT's) Moving Washington policy directs agency employees to integrate demand management, operations, and strategic capacity strategies to achieve a reliable, responsible, and sustainable transportation system that supports Washington State's healthy economy, environment, and communities. To meet the intent of Moving Washington, WSDOT's planning and programming efforts must evolve to evaluate the costs, benefits, and effectiveness of a more diverse set of transportation solutions, including those that require implementation by partnering jurisdictions. Only through this broader lens will WSDOT be able to identify and implement the least cost, practical solutions that will help WSDOT meet transportation challenges within budgeted resources. Current WSDOT business practices more effectively integrate strategic capacity and operations strategies, while demand management is a newer focus and more challenging to integrate. Integrating demand management strategies is challenging because these strategies include a great variety of programs, services, policies, and regulations that cannot be applied equally and effectively in all conditions. The strategies take various lengths of time for development and implementation, and they fall under the jurisdiction of different agencies, governments, and authorities.
