Advancing Transportation Planning Through Innovation & Research: Multimodal Planning at the Megaregional Scale

This research project will provide specific strategies and implementation tools for local governments, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to reconcile local, regional, megaregion, and national transportation planning as a comprehensive system. Current planning methods do not readily bridge across scales to address transportation issues in a consistent way. This project will lead to transformational changes and revolutionary advances for transportation planning by developing and disseminating clear guidance (policies, strategies, and implementation tools) for local governments and regional agencies to address megaregional issues in long-range comprehensive planning.
