Transportation Goal 3: preserve and improve aging transportation infrastructure
Adequately fund and maintain transportation infrastructure, recognizing that much of the regionâ€™s infrastructure was built in the early part of the 20th century and will require significant reinvestment to preserve and improve. Existing roads and infrastructure, especially when addressing sprawl, should be given priority. New transit infrastructure should focus on targeted areas, such as downtown centers, and the creation of intermodal hubs to connect services. This approach is consistent with the stateâ€™s Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy Act, which aims to minimize sprawl development by requiring state agencies to evaluate public infrastructure projects for consistency with Smart Growth criteria.
