Community Transportation Technical Assistance Program

The process begins with the community inviting a team of transportation planners to discuss the issues, and ends with the planners recommending solutions to address the concerns. Since the program’s inception, more than 15 communities have received recommendations ranging from traffic calming and intersection redesign to pedestrian circulation and bicycle accommodation.
