Direction2035 represents the region’s blueprint for transportation through 2035 and includes policies, initiatives, and projects designed to maximize regional goals. Local elected officials working through SEMCOG have adopted a regional investment direction guiding the distribution of federal funding among six key components — pavement, bridge, congestion mitigation, pedestrian and bike, safety, and transit. SEMCOG has also identified regional needs and priorities and recommended strategies for mitigating those needs. Public comments will be reviewed and considered before Direction2035 is adopted. Direction2035 is scheduled for adoption at SEMCOG’s General Assembly on October 22, 2009.
