WE NEED YOUR INPUT!
Continue the conversation to move Arkansas forward.
The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) is updating the state’s Long Range Intermodal Transportation Plan (LRITP). The LRITP is a comprehensive document that details goals, objectives, policies, investment strategies, and performance measures which will guide future transportation investments to move Arkansas forward. The LRITP will examine all aspects of the state’s multimodal transportation system, including highways, bridges, public transportation, rail, bicycle, and pedestrian, ports, and waterways, and aviation.
This will be the state’s first performance-focused long range plan. That means that for the first time, performance measures will be developed for the goals and objectives identified in the plan. Doing this will help AHTD evaluate investment scenarios, select projects and programs, as well as develop performance reports to track progress. Performance measures are being evaluated for safety, pavement condition, bridge condition, congestion, and travel time reliability.
We are hosting a series of regional meetings to visit with decision-makers and stakeholders about the future of transportation in Arkansas. We’ll talk about the development of the long range plan, transportation needs that have been identified, the goals that have been developed and the public input we’ve heard to date. We need your input on ways we can achieve the plan’s goals and what your priorities are for how transportation dollars should be invested.
